About

As a qualified music teacher I have over nine years of experience of teaching young people music. My aim is to enthuse and inspire each and every pupil I teach, by teaching them in an individual and tailored way. I am currently the singing teacher at St Augustine’s Catholic College and also teach privately in the Devizes area.

I perform regularly in the Wiltshire area both with Musical Theatre groups and at various concerts and events. I also direct choirs, both secular and sacred, and musically direct productions.

  • Pupil Concerts- I try and arrange regular opportunities for my pupils to perform and share their music with others.

What I / we help young people achieve

There are so many benefits of having music lessons and I aim to offer the best experience to each and every one of my pupils. I believe that music can offer so much in terms of confidence and enjoyment. I tailor lessons to each pupils' likes and dislikes, and I learn what enthuses them and makes them tick. It is so rewarding to watch children grow as musicians, and I encourage them to share their talent by performing, but never push anyone to do anything they're not comfortable with. I am passionate about encouraging the next generation of musicians and ensuring that music is accessible for all, regardless of background. In creating a safe, positive and enriching experience I hope that my pupils' learning is valuable, memorable and enjoyable.

Working with special needs

  • I worked as a supply TA in a special needs primary school whilst I was at university and it was invaluable experience. During my time at the school I got to assist with music lessons, as well as see how music and singing was used throughout the school day to help communicate with the children.
  • I have taught a number of pupils with a range of special needs, including Autism, Aspergers, Tourettes and Dyslexia. I enjoy getting to know each pupil and approaching their lessons in an individual and tailor made way.
