- How much do you charge?
£18 per 30mins or £30 per 60mins. These prices are negotiable depending on whether I travel to you or you travel to me.
- Where do you teach?
I'm happy to teach at home where it's convenient for the pupil, but I'm also happy to come to your home depending on the transport links, as I don't currently drive.

As a Professional freelance musician my timetable is very flexible, so I'm happy to fix lessons week by week. A fixed lesson time can be arranged if it's preferable to the student. I'm also available for lessons during all school holidays.

All ages and levels
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Most of my pupils are entered for the ABRSM examinations, but I'm also very familiar with the Trinity Guildhall syllabus. I have prepared students for their standard grade, Higher, and Advanced Higher performance music exams, as well as preparing pupils for their GCSE and A-Level music performances.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching the flute for over 8 years now to pupils ranging in age from six to forty-five. I teach any standard, whether you're a beginner, or you are more advanced and wish to pursue a career in music. Throughout my years of experience, I have taught within schools, music centres and privately. The majority of my pupils like to be entered for ABRSM examinations and my current pass rate is 100%.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I currently hold an up-to-date CRB certificate.

At the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, I studied flute with Alison Mitchell (Principal flute in the Scottish Chamber Orchestra), and Piccolo with Janet Richardson (Principal Piccolo in the Royal Scottish National Orchestra)

I have also received lessons from regular guest principal freelancers, Karen Jones and Robert Winn.
