My teaching method is grounded in good technique from the first lesson, enabling students to excel and feel an great sense of enjoyment and accomplishment when they play. I believe that music should be enjoyed first and foremost and foster a sense of individuality and creativity in my students. I also prepare students for exams (ABRSM and Trinity) as it offers tangible goals and pleasing results.
I am a freelance musician who has been teaching professionally in and around London since 2013. I work in schools and privately and offer a variety of styles and lesson plans. I have recently gained a distinction in my Masters in Orchestral Artistry from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have an up to date enhanced DBS.
My base rate is for online tuition and teaching from home (35p/h). Depending on location and travel time I am able to visit students houses, this is to be discussed prior to first lesson.
I have a 24 Hour Cancellation Policy
