My philosophy of Teaching and Learning excellence is providing equal opportunities to all. This is demonstrated in my teaching and supervising roles by focusing on providing all students with the chance to achieve their maximum potential, and prepare them for careers as professional musicians. I focus on each student’s ability to deliver artistic expression in a professional public setting. I am innovative in my approach to teaching and learning, implementing the most recent academic findings into areas such as memorisation (using various types of memory, memory techniques, with particular attention to suit those techniques to individual students’ capabilities and talents), sight-reading (employing modern technology such as sight-reading with the audio of pre-recorded pieces, video recordings of performances), and using the most up-to-date approach to teaching technique, with particular attention to students’ physical wellbeing (combining some of the research in physiology of a human body in the context of performance, some of the techniques leading to recovery of students who already experience issues with their technique).
