My approach is to explain concepts and methods slowly, clearly and in interesting ways to the students, to be patient and understanding in all areas, and to give detailed feedback. I believe that every student learns differently, and so it is important to find a strategy which helps them as an individual.
I am a recent Music graduate from King’s College, Cambridge, where I also sang in the world-renowned college choir and in the close-harmony group The King’s Men. In particular, my strong skills include compositional pastiche, such as sixteenth or eighteenth century styles. I am also able to help students with French and German up to GCSE level.
