Teaching and Mentoring



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

He is the GCSE online music teacher for the Cambridge Home School (since December 2017), delivering lessons for two hours a week to anywhere in the world (currently including Singapore).

He is currently tutoring for GCSE Music privately following supply work at Amersham SchoolHighcrest Academy and Beaconsfield High School.


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 completed a very successful five year mentoring programme with a Head of Music in Berkshire.

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.
