I have qualified with the British Suzuki Institute as one of the first Suzuki recorder teachers in the UK and I have a great deal of teaching experience, having taught pupils between the ages of 0 and 40+ in both individual and group settings. I very much enjoy working with young people and I have led a number of music workshops in the community through organisations such as 'Live Music Now' and the Wigmore Hall 'Chamber Tots' scheme.
