- Where do you teach?
I live in Barnes (SW13) and am happy to travel to my students' homes within reasonable distance. If travelling time exceeds an hour each way I ask for £5 extra.

Grade exams, auditions and concerts. Or just for fun!

I have taught privately for three years or so and I have coached groups at London Symphony Orchestra Discovery courses and at Wigmore Hall.
