I am kind, patient and want to bring out the best in you. I am told that I am clear about what is required but create a relaxed atmosphere in which students can thrive.

Background

I am an enthusiastic and professional teacher who has been involved in secondary music education for over 30 years, most recently for 16 years as Director of Music at the Tiffin Girls' School. I am currently Director of Music at Holy Trinity Church Clapham and Director of Music at the Thames Christian College. I also work as an examiner for C.I.E examinations (for the Pre-U music qualification).

Yes . In fact I have 2 current DBS checks in operation. One from my school and one from my church.

I studied at the University of Bristol and Goldsmith's College and later spent time working on compositions with eminent figures such as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Peter Dickinson.
