"I really enjoy my lessons with Rosie as she is so supportive and encourages me all the time."

Sophia, Pianist, 13

Music makes you happy!

Singing and playing the piano is good for your body, mind & soul.


It helps you relax, breathe and think more clearly, so it's a great thing to do at every age!  

At the moment, we're having fun learning safely online,  and we are currently preparing to resume socially distanced music coaching from 12 April, subject to guidelines.


We have fun learning in a relaxed, positive environment

Covid-19 Secure coaching 

I teach piano lessons and singing lessons at TCR Hub in Barnard Castle.

I also coach at Manfield Village Hall, near Darlington. 

They're both wonderful places to learn, with great facilities & COVID-19 secure.

So if you or your child would like to start learning music, please get in touch for a chat.

Coaching that suits you

Some of my students find learning in their own home more relaxed, so I can offer this by arrangement, depending on your location and Covid-19 guidelines.

I'll be happy to arrange an informal first session with you or your child when it's safe for us to meet in person.

Prefer to be outside and keep fit? Ask me about singing coaching walks!

Music for Everyone

This is Sue. She loves musicals!

Wherever you or your child are on your musical journey, I'll help you move forward, and have a lot of fun!

I coach people aged 7 to 70+ in singing,  piano and brass lessons, from beginners to intermediate level. I also help students with music theory, songwriting, GCSE and A level music, auditions and ABRSM grades.

Have fun learning! 

I encourage my students to practice anywhere and everywhere, perform with other students and join bands or choirs. It's a great way to relax and make new friends!

I  help my students build their confidence by trying lots of new things. I also encourage all my young students to write their own music- please visit my blog to find out why this is great for kids!


We play a wide variety of your favourite styles, classical, pop, musical theatre and jazz. 

About me 

I'm a singer and multi- instrumentalist with over 25 years performance experience as a soloist and with bands and choirs, in the UK & Europe.

I've been coaching music at TCR Hub since 2017, and have many years of experience working internationally as a coach and trainer.

I'm proud to be a member of the ISM, the professional body for musicians. I am fully CRB checked, so you have peace of mind when learning with me.

Coaching for Choirs

A small group workshop for Richmondshire Choral Society 

I love helping choirs make their best sound.  

I offer small group workshops for choir members  and coaching for the whole choir. 

You can read my blog about a recent singing workshop here.

I also offer short courses for choir singers at all levels who want to build their vocal skills and keep their voice healthy. 

To find out more about how I can help you or your choir please get in touch for a chat.


More about me, (just for fun!)

I live in the countryside with my two favourite chaps, (one is a dog, the other sells antiques).


We all love walking and biscuits!

I love singing whilst gardening, singing whilst cooking, very long baths and my new piano.

For more about my adventures in music and beyond, singing tips and fun, visit my blog and follow me on social media.
