Music Theory Tuition

I offer a range of music theory tuition from ABRSM Grade 5 to Royal College of Organists’ diplomas and conservatoire level. As well as face-to-face teaching, I can provide lessons online via skype, with coursework marked and returned by email.

You can read about my professional experience as a teacher and examiner here.

Royal College of Organists’ diplomas

I have helped many students successfully meet the paperwork requirements for Royal College of Organists’ diploma examinations. I offer support either face-to-face or by distance learning.

I have 35 years’ experience as a teacher at three of London’s leading music colleges and recognise the importance of personalising my teaching according to students’ individual needs.

My teaching resources include self-help handouts, containing a number of carefully graded exercises, including:

  • counterpoint (baroque and renaissance)
  • harmony (Bach chorale style)
  • fugue
  • figured bass

Other music theory tuition

I can also prepare students for ABRSM Grade 5 Theory and any other levels required.

As a former ABRSM examiner, with responsibility for training and moderation, I have extensive knowledge of all aspects of the examination system and can provide the following services to prospective candidates:

  • a focused and logical approach to aural tests and sight-reading at all grades and for all instruments
  • a mock examination service with personalised and immediate feedback


First half-hour free and without obligation. Thereafter my teaching fees are reasonable and negotiable, in line with rates recommended by the Incorporated Society of Musicians.
