Chris's main teaching focus is the piano, but also teaches Musicianship (at Junior Trinity), and recently taught classroom music from Key Stages 3 to 5, as well as Theory and Aural, at the Godolphin School (Salisbury). Chamber Music coaching features prominently in his working life and a number of ensembles in his tutelage have progressed far in the Pro Corda National Schools Chamber Music Competition in the last few years.
Whilst insistent that music making be enjoyed and developed for its own sake, as a way of enriching one's life, Chris regularly prepares and enters students for both ABRSM and Trinity College practical exams. He teaches all ages and abilities, and has recently guided his students towards successes in the ATCL, LTCL and ARSM performance diplomas - as well as a string of Distinctions in Grade exams.
Chris teaches throughout the south of England, at Millfield School, Salisbury Cathedral School (from 09/19), Junior Trinity, Reigate Grammar School (from 09/19) and Graveney School. He is also in much demand as a private teacher to young people and adults at his teaching base in Salisbury. Until summer 2018 he was the Head of Instrumental Music at the Godolphin School and has previously held visiting roles at Halliford School, Kingsdale School, Royal Russell School and James Allens' Saturday School for the Performing Arts.
