Professional oboist and experienced oboe and piano teacher based in North London

Methodology

I am a freelance musician and teacher based in North London and a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. I teach oboe and piano privately and in schools across a range of ages and abilities from beginner level to Grade 8 and beyond. My current teaching position as piano and woodwind teacher at a pre-prep school means that I am equally comfortable teaching young children as well as older children and adult learners. I also hold a DBS certificate.

I am experienced in preparing and entering students for ABRSM exams, both in the early and more advanced grades, and all with successful results. I am very happy for my students to take exams, though I equally enjoy teaching those who would prefer to learn and play without exam pressure.

My lessons will always be tailored to suit the needs of the individual with the setting of clear and achievable goals. I like to teach in a relaxed, encouraging and open minded style, with an emphasis on inspiring and developing a love and appreciation for music whilst mastering technique.

For younger children who are beginners I would recommend a 30 minute lesson, and for older and/or more advanced players up to 60 minutes.

I would actively encourage students to be involved with ensemble playing and choirs. Playing and singing with other people is great for developing many different aspects of musicianship such as sight reading, aural skills and ensemble skills.

Experience

As a freelance oboe player I have performed with orchestras such as BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra and London Philharmonic Orchestra. I am also passionate about solo and chamber music and am a member of the Countess of Munster Recital Scheme. My training and experience in these different areas of playing mean that I am able to offer a balanced and well rounded approach to playing, with a focus on developing all-round musicianship as well as skill on the instrument.
