Personal Description:

I am a recent First Class graduate of the Royal College of Music having studied saxophone, clarinet and flute. I perform on all three instruments regularly in a variety of different scenarios, from musical theatre pit bands to orchestras, to chamber recitals and jazz bands. I had achieved Grade VIII distinction on all three instruments by the age of 18 and am now working past this standard on all three. I have played Reed I in the National Youth Musical Theatre (NYMT) production of Sweet Charity, and have since then made my debut in the West End playing Reed 4 in the Showtime production of Thoroughly Modern Millie in March this year, to name a couple of highlights.

Tutoring Experience:

I have recently been appointed as Flute teacher at Burgess Hill Girls School in West Sussex. Before this, I was a peripatetic woodwind teacher for Hillingdon Music Service, teaching saxophone, clarinet and flute to Year Four, Five and Six students across the Borough. For the past three years, I have worked at the Royal College of Music Junior department, working alongside children aged 8-18 and sometimes coaching small ensembles. The vast majority of my time with NYMT last Summer was spent coaching young musicians to the best of their ability in our five-strong woodwind section. Away from music, before moving to London for university, I spent two years teaching disabled swimmers at my local swimming club, at which I was club captain for two years.

Tutoring Approach:

I strive to make music lessons the highlight to any student's week. I consider myself to be a fun and chatty person who can create a relaxed and positive atmosphere in lesson times, as this really is the best environment for any student to learn in. I strive to coach every student to become the very best musician they can possibly be, but in absolutely no way compromising his or her's love for their instrument and making music. This is, above all, the most important factor to me: if I can inspire my pupils to want to pick up their instrument every day and become a better musician, then I believe I have done my job.
