Piano (beginners only)
I am also happy to provide extra tuition for GSCE and A Level Music/composition.

I charge £30 per hour and £15 per half hour. For Violin, Viola, Theory, Composition and A Level/GSCE Tutoring I am happy to take groups of 4 at £20 per hour per participant.

I preferably teach at home in Southfields where I have a specialised music room. I live 6 mins walk from Southfields tube station. I am happy to travel to pupils in the Wandsworth/SW/W London areas.
- When are you available?
I can teach most evenings and weekends. I tend to be flexible due to the nature of my course, some weeks are busier than others but I am always willing to make up time.

I am happy to help with all levels whether you're a beginner or advanced student even if you're someone who has recently rediscovered a passion for music!

I generally prepare my students for ABRSM Exams although I am equally happy to prepare pupils for Trinity Guildhall examinations.

Music is for everyone; whether it's a way to escape or relax or a great passion, it is here to be enjoyed. If you have ever wished to learn to play you should - you may discover just what you've been missing!

I was the principal viola of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain where I worked with some of the World's leading conductors and tutors. I have performed at the Royal Albert Hall in the BBC promenade concert series twice, and I am the founder of both the Arnold Camerata and the 'Essentially English' Chamber Music Festival.
