Student education

Accompanist, tutor/coach, organiser and principal class teacher for all the solo and small-group performance/recital modules at all levels (first-year undergraduate to masters), and accompanist to some Ph.D. performers.  This amounts to organising, and in most cases accompanying, several hundred student performances every year, across a wide range of genres.  Also support many student concerts, as accompanist and programme-planner.  These are both on campus (8 per year minimum) and off campus, e.g. Ripon Cathedral, where we have done 6 lunchtime concerts every year since the series started in 2004, Wakefield Cathedral (2 per year), etc.
