I began music lessons at the age of 6, firstly on Recorder and then onto Piano. I also love to play flute! Slowly but surely I developed a love for more contemporary rock music, whilst maintaining a healthy appreciation of the the famous classical pieces like Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, Moonlight Sonata and Für Elise, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and so many other wonderful works.
I particularly enjoy rock music from the sixties and seventies, and as I am a 80’s baby, most music from that era as well. This varied musical exposure enables me to play in my church band and cross over successfully into my rock band, The Pyromonics.
Today, apart from teaching Piano and the Young Singers programme at Legacy, I also continue performing with my band enabling me to both work with people and make music, which is what I absolutely love to do!

The lessons offered within our piano program cover a few different bases:
Kids ages 5-7yrs – are taught in a fun and exciting way to grab their attention and keep them interested each week they attend class. Kids ages 8-12yrs – we want to see them achieve but still have fun in their classes.
We use material from John Thompson to James Bastien and incorporate exciting pieces to keep them captivated and interested not only in piano, as an instrument, but also in the enjoyment of learning music.
Teens and up – Each Teen has their own way of expressing themselves. We have found teens respond well to learning the piano when certain genres are not forced upon. We offer classical and contemporary music as well as graded exams in Trinity and Rockschool. These exams are not age specific.
Adults – We don’t all get a chance to play piano at a young age and so we offer lessons for those who want to learn for personal upliftment be it classical to contemporary, or if you would like to learn to play by ear. No matter what your age is.
Even though we follow a basic curriculum to move you from the beginner stages and up to the ranks of the pros, our lessons are still flexible enough to cater for your needs.
If you are playing in your home, or in a church band or rocking it out on stage.
Our motto here at Legacy is…………… “It begins here”
