I mainly teach oboe up to and beyond Grade 8 level and music theory up to Grade 6 (including basic harmony).

£28 per hour, when teaching from my home. A supplement will be charged to cover travel expenses if lessons take place in your home or other locations.

I have been teaching for 8 years, both in schools and privately. I currently teach in local schools for Lewisham Music Service and in Blackheath High School (GDST), in addition to my private teaching. In have also led school ensembles in rehearsals and concerts. I have previous experience in teaching flute, clarinet and recorder, as well as oboe, and I have observed lessons being given in all of the main woodwind instruments. I have also tutored in various other subjects aside from music - mainly English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning - through Knowledge Seekers (knowledgeseekers.co.uk), a private tuition company based in Dulwich.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I have an enhanced CRB disclosure certificate,

- Where and with whom did you train?

Trinity Laban with Tess Miller and David Thomas.
Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with Stephen West and Rosie Staniforth.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

One of my students, aged 12, recently gained a distinction in her ABRSM Grade 2 oboe exam. She has been learning with me since she took up the oboe, 18 months ago.

Several students whom I have tutored for 11+ exams have received places at their first choice school; often they have been offered scholarships.
