Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught instrumental lessons for 30 years and have also been a specialist primary music teacher in Essex schools for 25 years, teaching whole class music and recorder lessons, conducting music festivals and organising school choirs and orchestras. I am Principal Bassoonist with Essex Symphony Orchestra and play with the Danzi Wind Quintet. I am Bassoon Tutor for Essex Youth Orchestra, Essex Young People's Orchestra and Essex Youth Symphonic Wind Orchestra. I play with Essex Music Services 5Live Wind Quintet.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

Vernon Elliott at Trinity College of Music, London

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have pupils as young as 5 learning descant recorder (an excellent introduction to all woodwind instruments, as well as an instrument in its own right) and pupils aged 8 to adult learning bassoon (and mini and short reach bassoons) clarinet, descant, treble, tenor and bass recorder and music theory. I have helped students to audition successfully for music scholarships at Newhall and Felsted and for the Essex Youth Orchestras. I also teach pupils in preparation for their GCSE and A level solo performances and perform with them in duets for their ensemble performances. Almost all of my younger pupils work towards ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall exams but many adult pupils choose not to. I am happy for lessons to follow either path.
