I have a lot of performing experience, I have been teaching people of all ages since I was 15 years old and I have taken musical workshops in schools all around the country.

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

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I attended the Purcell School of Music in 2004 aged 11 to study Horn, Violin and Piano. I was given a rounded education in academic music and studied the horn with Sue Dent. I then attended the Royal College of Music where I studied with Simon Rayner (Principal horn Opera House, Covent Garden), John Ryan (Co-Principal Horn London Philharmonic Orchestra), Jeffrey Bryant (Retired Co-Principal horn Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Nigel Black (Principal Horn of Philharmonia Orchestra) and Timothy Jones (Principal Horn of London Symphony Orchestra).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I currently teach seven people, the youngest at 5 years old and the oldest at 36. I have started most as beginners and have taken people on of varying abilities.
