I teach the French Horn and coach chamber groups and larger ensembles. I've also been the Performance Health lecturer at the RWCMD Junior College since 2013, and am happy to provide lectures on any area of Performance Health (warm ups/downs, sustaining a good technique, creating a healthy practice environment, healthy practice routines, performance anxiety, hearing protection, how to prevent performance-related injuries etc.).

I have a Masters (2015) and Bachelors Degree (2013, First Class) in Music Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I also completed my DipABRSM in brass teaching in 2012.

Upon completing my BMus in 2013, I won the Simon Clarkson Memorial Award for 'best overall musician' and both the June Emerson Launchpad Prize and the McGrenery Chamber Music Prize with New British Winds.
