My personal experience with mentorships

Having both the DipRSL & LRSL set myself apart from other peripatetic & private teachers across the UK & helped me gain & retain students in my private practice & helped me secure lucrative & career defining positions lecturing & writing about music & music education. 


I had mentors for both of these qualifications & with their guidance I was able to thrive & complete these qualifications to the highest standard.


My Academic & Musicianship Mentors were


Mr Clark Ellis (LRSL – G.I.T hons)
