- What kind of experience do you have?
Regarding teaching experience, I have assisted at a summer residential music course for children aged 7-14 in Jersey teaching theory and coaching various ensembles. I have also taught flute and theory privately to young children, helping those who want to achieve Grade 5 theory to progress onto higher grades.
Regarding performing experience, I am experienced in all genres ranging from classical to pop. Having graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor in Music Performance specialising in classical flute & piccolo, I have had plenty of performing experience in symphonic, and chamber settings. Most recent achievements include spending a summer season in the West End performing at the London Palladium, having the opportunity to record Ibiza Anthems with Pete Tong and performing at the BBC Proms in the Albert Hall.
As well as flute and piccolo, I also play ethnic flutes such as the bansuri, chinese xiao and dizi.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I don't have one at the moment but if required I will apply.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with Anna Noakes, Anna Pope and Alan Baker (piccolo)
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of the Musician's Union
- Tell me about some of your current students.
The students I have love having their lessons. Some of them are so keen that they practice in the mornings before school - without being asked!
Recently, with some of my beginners, I have been arranging their favourite pop tunes for them to play as I think it is always important to play something that you actually enjoy, so if you are interested in having some lessons and there is something you really want to play, I will do my best to create it for you.
