Information about Martin
I am professional musician, and love the variety that goes with it. From performing at gigs, to teaching piano and keyboard, running workshops and composing music I try to make my work hugely diverse, this not only keeps things interesting, but makes me a much better musician!

Experience: I have been a professional musician for many years playing piano and keyboards. As well as teaching I compose music for TV and media, and perform in bands around the country.
My many years live playing experience is useful for teaching as I can quickly adapt to different styles and songs students may wish to learn. .
I have a 100% pass rate in Classical and Jazz Exams. With many pupils gaining Distinctions as well as being selected to perform in concerts. (please note that exams are not compulsory in any way, exams should only be taken should the student wishes, the main thing is they have fun!)
I firmly believe learning music should be about fun and enjoyment, and not seen as a textbook subject as so many make it out to be.
The first lesson always involves qualifying the students own musical interests on their first lesson, so from the outset they can relate and play music they enjoy - this is especially so in younger students - who forcing them to play music they don`t want to can put them off music forever!
