Incredibly passionate teacher with over 8 years of experience teaching children and adults. My music school runs on a Saturday from my home in Leyton. Do get in touch if you have any questions!

At Trinity College of Music, I studied both jazz and classical clarinet and saxophone. I specialise in both of these genres.

I love playing and teaching an eclectic range of different styles. I also offer lessons in music theory as well as A-level and GCSE music support.

I have my grade 8 (Distinction) and an undergraduate degree (2:1) from Trinity College of Music in Greenwich where I specialised in the theory of instrumental and vocal teaching, working towards my Teaching Licentiate Diploma. I also hold a performance diploma (ATCL) with Trinity Guildhall.
