During my studies at music college, I chose to put emphasis on music education and led a variety of outreach projects and workshops for children in London and Kent. I was Head of Strings at Babington House School in Chislehurst where I taught individuals and ran the school's string orchestra.

I was also the Strings Mentor on the CLIC Sargent Summer Course 2015.
