Hi, I'm in my third year at the Royal College of Music and before this I studied at the Chetham's School of music. I am passionate about teaching and I can't wait to get started!
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach primarily Classical music, but I could branch out to Jazz if needed. My first study is Clarinet, but I can also teach Piano, Saxophone, Theory, Recorder, Practical Musicianship and Ensemble Coaching
- Tell me about your qualifications.
ABRSM Clarinet Grade 8 Distinction
ABRSM Piano Grade 8 Distinction
ABRSM Theory Grade 5
I left Chetham's School of Music with 3 A Levels: Music (A), Music technology (B), English Literature (C)
- How much do you charge?
For instrumental lessons I charge £25 an hour or £15 for half an hour, but I would be willing to discount this by 10% for group lessons. For the theory based lessons I charge £20. However out of zone 3 my travel expenses would need to be covered. All of these prices are negotiable!
- Where do you teach?
I am happy to teach at my house or come to the student's house. I am based in West London, and I am happy to travel in London to teach.
- When are you available?
I am free all week! Being at Music College my timetable is very changable, due to concerts and rehearsals so times for lessons would need to be discussed seperately with the student.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I am more than happy to teach all ages and abilities
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
This depends entirely on the student, we will cover what the pupil and parent would like to cover, so ABRSM exams, Trinity and Guildhall exams, preparation for auditions, or if you would just like to play and learn for fun that's great too!
- Do you have a personal message for students?
The best advice I can offer is to get stuck in with your clarinet as soon as possible, experiment with different aspects of music, the more you put into it the more you will get out of it! Get in touch and we can organise some lessons, you will be so glad to give it a go!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have shadowed music teachers at the City of London Boys School and the Hereford Cathedral School. I am a member of the RCM outreach team called Sparks in which I take part and help organise workshops in the surrounding boroughs of West London. In a similar organisation called Rhythm for Life I taught groups of the over fifties recorder and keyboard for a ten week project which was thoroughly rewarding. I have also organised a half hour workshop for seven year olds which I performed with colleagues from the RCM in a school in Earls Court. During my time at Chetham's School of Music I participated in several workshops at the school and in a children's hospital. I have two private pupils and have had many enquiries which I intend to take up when I return from my exchange in Sweden in the New Year.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, and I can provide reliable references on request
- Where and with whom did you train?
Before joining Chetham's School of Music in 2007 I went for some private lessons with KEVIN MURPHY (Head of Woodwind at Wells Cathedral School) then at Chet's I learned with JIME MUIRHEAD (clarinetist in the Halle Orchestra) and ROSA CAMPOS-FERNANDEZ who is also in the Halle Orchestra. I am now at the Royal College of Music and am primerialy studying with TIM LINES (who has played with London Sinfonietta, Nash Ensemble, London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, English Baroque Soloists, the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment). While on Exchange in Sweden I studied with Anders Aberg who is Principal Clarinet of the Malmo Opera, and Olli LeppÃ¤niemi, Principal Clarinet of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra. I have had masterclasses with Emma Johnson, Nicolas Daniels, Nick Cox, Janet Hilton, Rob Buckland, Barnaby Robson, Richard Hosford, Antony Pay, Chris Richard, Olli LeppÃ¤niemi, Maximiliano MartÃn and Andrew Roberts
- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I belong to the CASS society (Clarinet and Saxophone Society Of Great Britain) and The Royal College of Music, London
