Teaching and Mentoring



Although no longer involved in full-time education, Patrick still enjoys teaching and currently offers private tuition in AQA A level and OCR GCSE Music, especially ‘crash courses’ prior to exams.

He is the GCSE and A Level online music teacher for the Cambridge Home School (since December 2017), delivering lessons for 4 hours a week to anywhere in the world (currently including Spain and Bangladesh)


Patrick is also able to offer aural training as preparation for graded music exams. This can often be a difficult area for candidates, with their music teachers rarely having the time to focus on this important aspect in private lessons, and this has proved to be a popular service.


Patrick is delighted to be able to use his extensive experience in music education to help others, and has recently been providing tailor-made CPD training for teachers new to the OCR GCSE specification. Please contact him if you are interested.

His aim is not to get people to teach like him, but rather to get them to teach like themselves, but better!

Patrick is a former Secondary Curriculum Excellence Advisor for Bucks Learning Trust Music, and was also the GTP Professional Tutor for the Oxon-Bucks partnership


Patrick enjoys teaching piano to adults and children - classical, jazz and rock - as well as Music Theatre Performance singing . He also teaches the ABRSM Jazz Piano syllabus.

Patrick also offers tuition in composition and arranging, either for academic purposes or purely for pleasure.
