Personal Description:

I am a Chew Valley/Bristol based Clarinet/Saxophone Player/Singer/Composer. I began playing at the age of 8 and have since gone on to perform as a soloist and in various ensembles in the Bristol/Lancaster/Huddersfield areas. I love to perform, and teaching others to achieve their full potential with their chosen instrument(s), whilst having fun, is such a joy!

Having played in various ensembles I have a wide repertoire of music through Classical, Jazz, and Contemporary genres. I also received the Huddersfield University 2014 Woodwind Prize for my performance ability and involvement at the university.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been taught by a number of tutors over the years: Ben Waghorn, Paul Stinchcombe, Quita Colston, John Woodhouse, Sarah Markham, and most recently Joel Purnell, and am able to incorporate elements of the way they teach with the way I found comfortable learning.

During my time at School and University I was participating in and leading ensembles, both small and large. I feel that this experience helps my ability to teach others by having a diversity in genres and learning environments.

I have been teaching for almost five years now and always incorporate an element of enjoyment in my lessons. It is a fantastic experience seeing your students progress.

Tutoring Approach:

Whether going through the grading system or just playing for fun, I structure lessons around the students own ability and what they want to achieve. I believe that music should be a fun and shared learning experience, where the student has just as much say as the tutor. I encourage learning to play in various genres and working with theory too should the student wish it.
