- Where do you teach?
I can teach from my home in West Hampstead for a discounted rate, and I am also willing to travel to students in surrounding areas.
- When are you available?
I am a freelance musician so my times are flexible, and I aim to make lessons as regular as possible for students.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
French Horn: Beginner- Advanced
Piano: Beginner- Grade 5
Music Theory: Grade 1- 8
I teach any age from 6 years old, but for brass playing I think it is best to begin after the second set of teeth have come in.

I am a passionate musician, and have been studying music for most of my life. I aim to inspire students to enjoy and appreciate music, whether they want to pursue music as a career, or just as a hobby.

I currently teach students of mixed levels privately, and I teach French Horn Classes as a guest tutor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. I taught King's College London French Horn Students through the Royal Academy of Music for 3 years, and I have taught chamber music for Royal Northern College of Music Junior Department, conducted workshops throughout primary schools, secondary schools, and schools for the profoundly disabled throughout the UK. I have also assisted the HallÃ© Orchestra in the running of their family workshops
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I do not have a current CRB certificate, but I am happy to obtain one at a students request.

I completed my undergraduate degree on the French Horn at the Royal Northern College of Music, studying with Lizzie Davis, Julian Plummer, and Beccy Goldberg.
