Personal Description:

Growing up I did music constantly. I started at the City of Belfast School of Music when I was 7 years old and studied piano, singing, cello, music theory and recorder. When I was 13 I gained entry to Methodist College Belfast where I was part of many musical groups including Girls Choir and Chapel Choir, performing in venues like the Royal Albert Hall, Westminster Abbey, the Musikverein in Vienna and the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

At 18 I went to the University of York and gained my degree in Music.

For the last 9 years i have lived and worked in England and have now returned home. I am very excited to be able to offer tutoring once again and look forward to meeting anyone who has in interest in learning a new instrument.

Tutoring Experience:

I began playing the cello when I was 5 years old, the piano at 7 and had my first singing lesson at 8 when I couldn't sing in tune.

I worked through ABRSM and Trinity exams in piano, cello, recorder, singing and music theory. I began tutoring students when I was still at school and absolutely loved it.

In 2008 I went to the University of York and gained my 2.1 BA (hons) degree in Music, specialising in Recorder and the Baroque period. I was lucky enough to be tutored by musicians such as Dr Jonathan Wainwright and Peter Seymour.

I have had some wonderful musical training and some totally uninspiring training- and this has led me to realise that the most important thing is to have fun when you learn because that's how you really learn to love what you're doing.

Tutoring Approach:

Music is about having fun and learning to love making a noise (even if it's not beautiful to begin with). I believe in creating a love of music and a love for an instrument which will give you enthusiasm and drive to keep playing even when it gets tricker.

Learning an instrument is not impossible at any age. All you need is someone to guide you through and help you find your own unique style.

My teaching method is light-hearted and we'll laugh when we make mistakes instead of focusing on them. You should enjoy every aspect of music and I will help you with this as we go.

I am also happy to meet with anyone who also has a desire to learn to read music- for their own enjoyment or to assist a musical child they might have. Please do feel free to enquire, there are no stupid questions, ever.

Half hour lessons are available- and usually recommended for young beginners. £13/ half an hour.

Please do enquire if you would like me to travel to your home and teach- I do offer this and charge petrol costs depending on your location.
