My teaching strategy is to help you progress from whatever your current standard might be, by applying historical principles and my personal experience to the practical challenges of the piece at hand. I encourage you to make music in a holistic and ‘juicy’ way, in which specific techniques and dry information are integrated into a rich musical texture, right from the beginning.

Practical questions include Tuning & Temperaments, How to Practise, Flow versus Performance Anxiety, and Ornament-playing.
