This then developed into teaching First Access Recorder, individual and small group flute, piano and keyboard lessons. I have also directed several different school and young people’s choirs, ensembles/bands, and have been musical director for many school plays and shows.

Formal qualifications:

PGCE in Primary Education – College of Ripon & York St John
B mus Hons – University of Surrey
Grade 8 Flute ABRSM
Grade 8 Piano ABRSM
Grade 5 Theory ABRSM


What I / we help young people achieve

I bring enthusiasm and a love of the subject to music making. It is very rewarding to watch children succeed and grow in self confidence through their musical achievements. I always try to encourage children to perform to others but understand that performance is not for everyone. Music should be for enjoyment and pleasure and should be accessible to all.

This is why I have particularly enjoyed the Wider Opportunities provision in schools, allowing every child the chance to experience learning an instrument. My pupils have a 100% success rate in ABRSM and Trinity exams, and if a child is happy to, I encourage taking exams as a measure of achievement and success for them.

My teaching is about offering experiences, opportunities, building self confidence and self belief, all of which can be measured by formal exams or small informal performances - whichever suit the child best.

My lessons have been consistently graded as 'outstanding', and I endeavor to continue this high quality teaching through constant self assessment and professional development.
