I'm a freelance Trumpeter based in Manchester. I am able to teach Trumpet from beginner to advanced levels (Grade 8/Diploma), Music Theory to a Grade 7 level, Cornet to a Grade 5 (ABRSM) level, and Piano to a Grade 3 level.
Having had recent experience of the ABRSM exam system, I know what is involved for examinations, and what it takes to perform well under exam pressure. However, I believe that music is also inherently a lot of fun, and I'm keen to keep lessons practical and involved.
I am currently studying Music Performance at the Royal Northern College of Music. Before starting my studies at the RNCM, I taught children from the ages of 7-11 at the Watford School of Music, introducing them to basic Music theory. I mostly perform as a Trumpeter and have played on some of Britain's most prestigious stages with fantastic orchestras, including most notably the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Alongside Trumpet, I play the Cornet, Viola and Piano, and am really interested in Jazz Piano.
