Throughout the year I offer a number of performance opportunities for students to share what they have been working on, either for fun or with exam prep in mind.

I have a wide range of experience in both teaching and performing. I perform regularly in the Midlands and around the country, I've recorded for BBC Radio 3, performed numerous world premiers, which have been recorded and played internationally, and I regularly perform in the pit for musical theatre productions.
As a teacher I have been teaching privately in Birmingham for over 7 years. I teach for local music services and have undertaken educational projects with both the CBSO and the Orchestra of the Swan alongside doing freelance educational work at colleges around the area and further afield. I have experience teaching young children through to adults who've always wanted to learn an instrument. I teach beginners through to students studying for their diplomas and auditions for Universities and have experience of tailoring my lessons to suit the individual needs of my pupils.
