About

I am a music graduate of Cardiff University and have worked in music education and professional performing for over ten years. I am experienced with teaching flute, singing, piano and music theory and have achieved examination success with grades from beginner to advanced levels. The age groups I have taught range from primary through to sixth form in both state and private schools and through this I have worked with pupils on a one to one basis, small groups and whole classes. I am also a former teacher with Birmingham Music Service, with whom I worked with for five years and with whom I became familiar with the day to day running of a large music service. My teaching qualifications include grade 8 examinations on flute, piano and music theory as well as a performance diploma in flute studies from Trinity Laban. Alongside my teaching work, I lead a busy life of professional performing, most notably through my work as a member of Salisbury Cathedral Choir.


What I / we help young people achieve

In my ten years of teaching, I have helped young people achieve excellent examination marks for grades on a range of different instruments and have also helped enrich their lives through introducing them to a range of repertoire and encouraging participation in musical activities. I always strive to promote good awareness of all round musicianship skills in my teaching, in addition to teaching good instrumental technique and preparing pupils for examinations.
Overall, each pupil I have taught has developed skills that have had a positive impact on many other aspects of their lives, most notably their other academic work, their social skills through participation in music and general confidence and self-esteem. I believe music can play an important role in many different aspects of learning and I intend to continue to promote this in my teaching as much as possible.

Working with special needs

I previously worked as a singing and music theory teacher at Bredon School in Gloucestershire which is recognised as one of the leading independent special needs schools in the country. Each individual pupil I taught had specific requirements to cater for and this experience was enlightening and invaluable in adding to my knowledge of dealing with special needs pupils. I have also received extensive training in dealing with special needs pupils through various teaching conferences and training days I have attended, particularly through the Elgar School of Music in Worcester.
