I am a young, enthusiastic music graduate who has held prior teaching experience in an international boarding school. I have taught students from a variety of backgrounds, abilities and ages through comprehensive and well-structured lessons. I will tailor my teaching to your ability and requirement and hope to see you soon!
I have been teaching for 6 years now, between London, Durham and Hong Kong. My students have gone on to take on music at GCSE/A Level and are regular performers. I have successfully put a few students through early graded examinations.
