I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who brings a wealth of expertise as a performer, having played in the UK and abroad as a soloist and with some of the UK's top orchestras and ensembles.
Whether my students are just starting out or pursuing further study, I enjoy the process of finding the best way to explain a fundamental concept, in a way that makes sense to them.
I am a clarinet specialist and am also an experienced saxophonist and pianist, able to teach clarinet, saxophone and piano to ABRSM Diploma level.
For some students, ABRSM grades can give a sense of a goal and something to aim towards. For others, we try to make the goal more personal. In either case, learning music should be a fun process, made all the more satisfying by making real progress.

As well being a visiting teacher of clarinet and saxophone at the renowned Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School and the Deutsche Schule London, I have given masterclasses at the prestigious MusicFest Aberystwyth, and for Guernsey Music Service. Whilst I was co-principal clarinet of the Southbank Sinfonia I worked closely with In Harmony Lambeth, providing music tuition and coaching to kids from disadvantaged backgrounds, and gave regular family concerts at Cadogan Hall in London.
My private students have ranged from advanced undergraduate music students to complete beginners, and numerous adult improvers.
As a performer, I have played with many of the UK's top orchestras (including BBC Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra) and am a regular guest soloist with some of the UK's top chamber groups.
I hold an up-to-date DBS Check.
I can teach in English or French as required.
