- Do you have a personal message for students?
Friendly, relaxed and patient I place emphasis on enjoying music and the instrument. I hope that students would share in my passion for music whether learning seriously or just for fun.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have experience teaching pupils of all ages. Specifically working in beginner piano, I teach at a prep school with children aged 5 and up as well as having lots of private teaching experience. I have also worked with children in my previous role as a tutor with Hillingdon Music Hub, teaching around 30 children in the borough. As a freelance musician, I have experience performing with professional orchestras and ensembles both in London and across the country.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
I studied french horn at the Royal Northern College of Music with Lindsey Stoker and Beccy Goldberg. I then competed a Masters degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Hugh Seenan, Jeff Bryant, Richard Bissill and Jonathan Lipton. I have also performed in masterclasses with Froydis Ree Werke, Frank Lloyd, David Pyatt and John Ryan. I was a member of the training orchestra Southbank Sinfonia in 2014.
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
- Tell me about some of your current students.
My students have included young children just beginning to explore music and the piano, some older children who play for fun and some who work for exams, and adult beginners in piano, trumpet and french horn. At the moment I am working with children at a prep school, I have some young beginners and some who are now taking graded exams.
