Double bass teacher and Oxford graduate giving lessons in the West Midlands

Methodology

I like to make lessons enjoyable, focusing mainly on what music my students want to learn whilst introducing them to new pieces that they may like. I use a broad range of repertoire including solo pieces, orchestral excerpts, studies, and short learning pieces that I compose for students. I teach French-style bow.

Experience

I have just completed a master's degree at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and earning a living through performing, teaching, and writing about music. I have studied for two years with Thomas Martin (London Symphony Orchestra) and Tony Alcock (City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra), and prior to this I studied with Charles Wall (CBSO). I completed my undergraduate degree at St Anne's College, University of Oxford, graduating in 2018 with a first-class grade.
