I started teaching five years ago and brought my first student from complete beginner to Grade 3 with Merit in two years.

I enjoy teaching both adults and children so am very happy to tutor students of any age.

I studied with Andrew Bernadi from a young age and had Masterclasses with Hugh Bean at the age of 11.
