Personal Description:

I have just finished studying my Masters, with a scholarship, at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with on the Orchestral Artistry Course, and am on track to gain a 1st. Previous to this, I studied with a scholarship, at the Royal Academy of Music, gaining a BMus(Hons). I was a scholar at the Purcell School of Music and Junior Guildhall.

I am a freelance player, regularly performing at venues all over London, such as the Barbican, Milton Court, Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall. I am a Britten Pears Artist 2020 and was offered a place on the Chipping Campden Festival Academy Orchestra.

I was a winner of the Jellinek solo competition in 2019 and am on the extras list for Sinfonia Cymru. I teach Oboe, Piano, Music Theory and Aural Training for exams. I have Grade 8 Oboe, Piano and Voice and extensive Music Theory training.

** I have been teaching online since March 2020 and am happy to teach any new pupils online until September if you'd prefer. I will begin teaching face to face for those who'd prefer from the week of 24th August**

Tutoring Experience:

I am a very experienced private tutor, and have recently completed the very prestigious LRAM Teaching Qualification as well as a teaching course by ABRSM. I am happy to provide references.

I have been teaching privately for nearly 5 years, with pupils successfully entering both ABRSM and Trinity exams as well as entering for courses such as the National Children’s Orchestra.

I have a portable Enhanced DBS and have extensive safeguarding experience through my work with the National Childrens Orchestra and National Youth Orchestra.

I teach Oboe, Piano and Music Theory from beginner through to post Grade 8. I have taught Music Theory with Chelsea Quavers Music School, at Wetherby Prep School as well as being been offered piano teaching work with Merton Music Foundation from September 2020.

I am organised and am confident in timetabling lessons, regularly organising months in advance while being flexible with last minute changes. I am punctual and prepare my lessons and the structure to suit the individual child. I have a thorough knowledge of repertoire and am able to adapt my teaching style and format to suit the different abilities and personalities of pupils.

Tutoring Approach:

As a teacher, I try to make enjoyment the main focus of learning, and with guidance and structure, pupils can thrive to be the best musician they can be. I am a strong believer that hard work leads to great progress. I am an energetic, dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who has always loved teaching and watching pupils achieve and grow as musicians as well as individuals.

I tailor my lessons to suit the pupil best, whether they want to start learning the instrument as a beginner, go through the grades, learn for fun or to simply improve technique and get some help. I teach in an engaging manner that aims to create a good attitude towards learning and a love for music.

My musical education has given me the tools and knowledge to provide a comprehensive, interesting, insightful and fun music teaching.
