Personal Description:

I grew up in Liverpool and began to play flute at the age of 7, followed by violin and piano. As a teenager I studied at the Junior School of the Royal Northern College of Music, and by the age of 18 I had achieved Grade 8 on all three instruments. I studied music at the University of Cambridge (Gonville and Caius College), achieving BA Hons (2:1) and MA (Cantab) degrees. I went on to study for a postgraduate performance diploma in Flute at Trinity College of Music. After more than a decade of teaching experience (in London, Somerset and North Wales) I have recently (2017 - 2019) been studying for an MA degree in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and in July 2019 I am returning to North Wales to seek work as a music therapist and music teacher.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching music for about 15 years, privately and peripatetically (in various schools and music centres). Between 2010 - 2014 I taught music (flute, violin, piano, guitar, music theory) in Somerset, both privately and within local schools as a peripatetic teacher. Between 2014-2017, I taught music in North Wales, working for the Gwasanaeth Ysgolion (schools' music service) William Mathias, and Canolfan Gerdd (music school) William Mathias (teaching in both Cymraeg (Welsh) and English). Between 2017-2019 I have been studying for a Masters degree in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and in 2019 I am returning to North Wales to seek work as a music therapist and music teacher.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a pupil-centred approach, using a variety of teaching systems, styles and approaches to get the best out of each pupil. I draw on my 29 years of experience in playing and studying music, and my knowledge of various teaching books and manuals, as well as using my own teaching materials. I am happy to prepare pupils for ABRSM exams if this is appropriate. I can teach classical music and techniques, or folk music and techniques, and I can also teach basic improvisation skills.
