Personal Description:

I am a composer, multi-instrumentalist and qualified music teacher. I do lots of work with group music making, improvising, and experimenting with sounds. I studied music at Dartington College of Arts where I specialised in electro-acoustic composition, so as well as playing lots of instruments, the possibilities of music technology is one of my main interests.

Tutoring Experience:

I took on my first music pupils as soon as I finished my degree at Dartington, teaching other degree and Masters students music technology.I went on to teach A level music, and then began leading workshops for groups of young people with different needs and musical interests. I decided to train as a secondary teacher in 2008 and added lots more genres and styles to my repertoire, as well as vocal tuition, choir leading and directing ensembles. I taught in schools in Birmingham with pupils from very diverse backgrounds with a wide variety of musical interests, and always found some common ground. Since moving to Devon 2 years ago, I have returned to workshop leading and taking on private tuition on a range of instruments.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach comes from the research I undertook while training as a secondary teacher, that is that pupils learn best when they are learning material that they can relate to. That keen mean learning to play current songs a pupil is listening to by ear ( their are massive benefits to learning this way) or helping pupils choose suitable sheet music that will inspire them. I tailor the learning methods to the individual as no two people learn in exactly the same way. I use informal methods of learning, but am equally at home teaching notation, theory and grade based material. I often find mixing the two methods really expands the skills and abilities of the learner.
While Saxophone and Technology are my two specialisms, I am able to teach other instruments at a more junior level, and am happy (in fact encouraging!) to take on adult learners aswell.
