Thurston and the surrounding area.


I've been working in the area of music since leaving school and was one of the first people in the country to use and demonstrate music synthesisers including to some very well known people.

I learned to play the piano and then the organ as a child and used this to great advantage on stage for many years, playing for the Hammond organ company and ARP among others. I was taught to patch synthesisers by Dr Robert Moog (Credited as being the father of the music synthesiser).

Later on I played the 50,000 Yamaha GX1 music synthesiser on some of its world tour before Keith Emerson used it for the famous E.L.P recording of "Fanfare For the Common Man".

These days aside from teaching, I have my own small recording studio and also run a band "Crisium" which includes some fabulous professional musicians.

I've been teaching for about 35 years and have recently moved to the area. I'm CRB checked and I also visit schools.

I'm happy teaching people of all ages and find it very rewarding. Learning in the comfort of your own home is a big plus. Therefore I travel to you.


I don't set an agenda or a time limit for people, there is nothing worse than being forced to play and then move on - ready or not.

I love music and I want others to love it as well, so I give them the space to enjoy it while they learn.

I take my approach from the people I teach, meaning that I will not push anybody who wants to play for pleasure and I try to make music into a fun and rewarding hobby.

However, I will happily work more intensely with people who want to achieve a particular standard eg. for public performance or for more serious study.

Anyone can master a keyboard instrument with a little patience and practice and it's great fun too. The same is also true for the organ and many adults especially, find it very rewarding to learn.

I also teach Music Technology and recording techniques. Ask me about your particular requirements.
