Personal Description:

Graduate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and the University of Bristol. Over 250 hours of teaching experience.

I am a flautist, recorder player and drummer.

I studied for an MMus in Historical Performance on recorder at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, generously supported by the Michael James Musical Trust, a Derek Butler award from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, and a scholarship award from the Guildhall School. My principal teacher was Professor Ian Wilson.

I play the flute and piccolo to diploma level, and drum kit to post-grade 8 level. I have performed in symphony orchestras for several years (including the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain and the University of Bristol Symphony Orchestra), as well as in wind bands, Baroque orchestras and consorts, Irish folk bands, rock and jazz bands.

I read Music at the University of Bristol, where I specialised in musicology as well as performance.

I have two professional performance diplomas, and an A* in OCR A level Music.

My past teachers have included Rebecca Prosser, John Bence, Liz May, Joanna Kirkwood and Karen Hardy. I have participated in masterclasses with Robert Ehrlich, Karel van Steenhoven, Annabel Knight, Katherine Bryan and Claire Overbury.

I have an up to date DBS certificate and have also completed the NSPCC Child Protection Awareness in Music training course.

Available for recorder, flute and drum kit lessons, preparation for theory exams, and GCSE and A Level music tutoring.

Tutoring Experience:

- I have had teaching practises in Swindon, Bristol, Leicester and London (August 2011-present)
- Music workshops in primary schools (Bristol, London and Bedford)
- Visiting Music Teacher for Wandsworth Schools' Music (January 2017-present).
I regularly take part in youth and kids work: I have worked on the Social Staff for the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain three times and also have lead on CPAS youth camps since 2014.

I have an NSPCC Child Awareness in Music certificate, and am fully DBS checked.

Tutoring Approach:

In general, lessons will initially be 30 mins long, progressing up to 60 mins. Lessons will be fun but challenging, studying different repertoires (including pieces on exam syllabuses), although always appropriate to the level of the student. Each lesson will also focus on improving technique, and exercises (e.g. scales or rudiments) will be set each week in the student's logbook, to be practised for the next lesson.
