About

For over 13 years I have taught at 15 schools and have been a founding member of a music academy which was a fantastic experience. I felt great being a part of an organisation that offered so much to the community.

I have played in several bands and an orchestra since I was a child, and have experience in conducting which gives me a variety of experiences and knowledge.

My primary instrument is the flute where I have my grade 8 and also high grades in clarinet and saxophone through the ABRSM. I can teach cornet/trumpet up to grade 3.

I am passionate about teaching music and firmly believe the opportunity to learn a musical instrument should be accessible to all, (adults too!) including people with special educational needs.


What I / we help young people achieve

I enter students in for music exams with the ABRSM and Trinity College of Music up to grade 5 with a 100% pass rate.

I have a great relationship with my pupils and their families, as with a lot of children I start teaching from the age of 7 and in a lot of cases until they go to university. I am always keen to support them all the way through school in any way I can.

I quite often support pupils with their Duke of Edinburgh Awards by filling in a Skills Assessment report for them and an Assessors log. I have also sat and played with pupils at their windband rehearsals to support them and help boost their confidence.

Ultimately, the most important part of my job is helping a student to have fun and leave every lesson feeling happy and proud of themselves.
