About

I have twenty years experience of successfully teaching music within primary and secondary schools, specialist schools and privately. I am an enthusiastic, patient and encouraging teacher who is committed to helping students to achieve their potential and progress at an appropriate pace.

I studied and trained at Middlesex University and later at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and Britten-Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies. After my training I worked as a freelance Violinist in Orchestras in London and around the UK as well as teaching in Schools. I moved to Bath 5 years ago and enjoy teaching music in local Schools in and around Bath.

I believe all children should have the opportunity to play music and I enjoy teaching all ages, levels and abilities from beginners to advanced, one to one and in small and large groups. I like to keep my pupils motivated and inspired by encouraging setting goals that they feel comfortable with, whether its performing a favourite piece to their family, performing with friends to the their class at school, joining a string ensemble, orchestra or band, learning a favourite piece, or composing a tune to play.

As well as having weekly lessons, I encourage my students to play with others in ensembles, groups or orchestras. Music can be a social activity, giving a sense of community.

I prepare pupils for ABRSM and Trinity London Exams with a 100% success rate with pupils receiving Merit and Distinction.

I have a wealth of professional performing experience in a wide range of musical styles including  Classical, Folk Fiddle – Irish and Scottish and Jazz bands, and have performed in Bath Philharmonia, London Concert Orchestra, English National Orchestra and English Symphony Orchestra.

My ensemble coaching experience covers beginner and intermediate level string ensembles to taking sectionals with Youth Orchestras.

 

 


What I / we help young people achieve

- Build a lifelong love of music; introduce and appreciate all styles of music. To inspire and show how listening and playing music can be extremely fulfilling.

- Enable young people to express themselves through music, exercise their imaginations, encouraging creativity, building confidence, self esteem and well being.

- Having the confidence to perform - wether it's to family/friends, their class at school, or concert in a hall.

- Cognitive benefits; helping to improve skills such as listening, numeracy and literacy, problem solving, communication and concentration.

- Playing music as part of an ensemble. Playing music with others is a social activity and helps build team skills.

- Setting and achieving realistic goals; learning a favourite piece of music, a new technique, taking an exam, preparing for a performance or audition.
