I graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Music from Durham University in 2011 and am now currently undertaking an Mmus (Masters in music) degree in Music Performance at the University of York.

I also have ABRSM Grade 8 distinctions in Oboe and Singing and Grade 6 Piano (Merit) as well as Grade 5 Music Theory

14 GCSEs: As and A*s (2006)

For academic tuition (Music GCSE, A level. Music Technology. Music Theory. Italian) £20/hr and £12/half hour (plus travel at £0.28 a mile)

Consultation lessons at reduced rates.

I teach instrumental lessons mainly at the University of York Music Department although I am happy to travel to students' homes depending on their needs.

I am also happy to tutor academic subjects at students' homes.

- When are you available?

I am available throughout the week and at weekends and I would arrange specific times and days according to what suits the student.

Regarding instrumental tuition, I teach beginners to advanced musicians.

With academic Music tuition I teach students of GCSE and A level standard.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM Grade examinations: 1 to Diploma

Music A level
Music technology A level

Italian GCSE

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been involved with music and music-making from a very young age. I sang in many choirs and played in orchestras and ensembles throughout school and university.
In terms of musical experience:
- Principal Oboe of the Durham University Symphony Orchestra and Durham University Chamber Orchestra (2009 - 2011)
- Principal Cor Anglais of the Durham University Symphony and Chamber Orchestras (2009 - 2011)
- Principal Oboe of the University of York Chamber Orchestra (2012)
- Principal Cor Anglais of the English School's Orchestra (2006)

I have also attended summer schools and courses on singing and vocal techniques such as the Eton Choral Courses (2005 - 2008)

All of these have aided in my development as an all round musician and I have sharpened my skills through academic and practical work at university.

I have also been teaching the Oboe and Cor Anglais for several years to mature students and I am involved in taking part in and leading workshops at different schools in the York area with the Music Education Group of the University of York.

I was brought up in an Italian household and was taught to speak it from a very early age, I feel that my fluency in Italian and my knowledge of the English language can together provide a very useful tool for anyone seeking to learn Italian from scratch, practice conversation or discuss and improve their Italian at an advanced level.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes
