Experience

I have taught the Alexander Technique since 2005 and been teaching the recorder since 1995. I currently teach AT in the music department at Eton College and am Professor of the recorder at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
As a music tutor I have worked with all ages and abilities in a number of institutions from primary schools through to university and music colleges.
I am a freelance recorder player and have won a variety of awards with my two chamber groups The Flautadors and Concanentes. Recent professional engagements have included playing for Handel's Julius Caesar and Charpentier's Medea at the ENO, performing with the Retrospect Ensemble in Belgium, adjudicating in the Hong Kong Schools Music Festival and playing on the sound track for the film 'The Awakening'.

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I completed my Alexander Technique training with Walter Carrington at the Constructive Teaching Centre in London and have continued further studies with John Nicholls, Elisabeth Walker, Jane Saunderson and Ilana Machover.

I completed postgraduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama studying recorder with Pamela Thorby and baroque oboe with Gail Hennessey.
I received a BMus from the University of Hull where I regularly gave concerts in the Beverley Early Music Festival.
