Welcome to the homepage of this site...

......which is designed primarily as a resource for music teachers and music students in The Bahamas. However there is much useful material here that will be of interest to music lovers worldwide.

Click on ABRSM to find information on the examinations offered in The Bahamas by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. You will find prices and a link to download an entry form. Syllabi, theory workbooks and practical albums specific to these exams can be obtained locally from me - check out the list on the products page or contact me.

NEW!You can now access information on the BGCSE music examination. I have a package available of teaching resources for the 2014-2015 Prepared Paper (Set Works). This includes scores, analyses, composer and historical background, quizzes on each set work and much more. Contact me if you would like a copy. I will also be available to conduct workshops on all aspects of the Music BGCSE examination in Family Island schools. Please contact me for details.

NEW! Band teachers, if you have damaged instruments lying around in your cupboards at school, give me a call as they may well be salvageable! I now have the certification to do this for you. I have the tools and the spare parts to re-pad, replace springs and regulate flutes, clarinets and saxophones, free sticking brass valves and tuning slides on trumpets, baritones and tubas, and make sticky trombone slides slide like they should. If anything needs soldering, I can do that too! Contact me and I will take a look at your instrument(s) and give you a quote. Please note that this service is only available in The Bahamas.

NEW!I am now available to facilitate workshops in New Providence and the Family Islands.Topics include: BGCSE Set Works; Fresh Ideas for Teaching Music in the Primary School; Strategies for Teaching Music Listening in Junior High; Planning to Teach music (how to create great lesson plans and teach great lessons); Introduction to Finale © music notation software I & II; Arranging for Band using Finale©. In addition I am also available to conduct band workshops with your school, church or community band.
