About the lesson

I am a professional musician based in London. I teach the bassoon, flute, music theory and chamber music.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the bassoon - including the mini bassoon and tenoroon, the flute, music theory as well as offering coaching for wind chamber ensembles.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am currently in my final year of study for a BMus degree in performance at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. I have ABRSM grade 8 bassoon and flute both with distinction and achieved an A in A Level music.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £28 an hour for bassoon, flute and chamber music lessons and £25 an hour for music theory lessons. I do offer 30 and 45 minute lessons at a reduced price as well as offering a reduced price for students wishing to learn an instrument as a pair - I do not teach groups bigger than two. Lesson prices may be slightly higher than stated the further out from central London I have to travel.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at my pupils houses. I am based in central London, Islington, Hackney, Camden, Tower Hamlets but am happy to travel to zone 3, however, I will charge a slightly higher rate to cover my transport costs.

- When are you available?

I am available to teach most afternoons/evenings as well as weekends, my timetable is flexible so I will be able to teach at a time convenient to you.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages, for the bassoon and flute from complete novice up to grade 8 and beyond and for music theory up to grade 5 (which is a requirement for students to proceed to grade 6+ on their instrument).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall exams. I am also more than happy to help prepare students for youth orchestra and music college auditions. If you want to play as a hobby that's fine too!

I have taught the bassoon for Ealing Junior Music Service and have taught the flute and bassoon for Connect Clinics, a collaborative project run by the Barbican Centre and Guildhall providing instrumental lessons and workshops for young children. I have 3 years experience of working on creative music projects in schools and pre schools around London as a workshop leader and assistant. More recently I have taught and assisted in music projects for elderly people at Gateway Housing Association and for disabled children at Phoenix School.

I currently play in the Guildhall School Symphony Orchestra, Guildhall Sinfonietta, the Dolce Wind Quintet and the Lola Wind Trio. As a musician I have performed in many prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Hall, Symphony Hall Birmingham and Banqueting House, Whitehall.

Yes
