Personal Description:

I have my Master in Music from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, where I studied oboe and cor anglais. Nowadays I freelance, both as a teacher and performer.

I enjoy all kinds of music, from Baroque sonatas to experimental and cross-disciplinary performance, such as improvising with dancers. I'm a bit keen on all kinds of art forms, and I think there are many parallels between them which help inform my own music making.

As part of my undergraduate degree I was lucky enough to study in Italy for a year, which taught me so much more about different people and their different approaches to similar situations.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught on and off since 2016, covering various topics from piano to science GCSEs to languages. In my first year of Master's I studied for a module in pedagogy, for which the reading and seminars we had were truly educational - I was also able to observe real-life lessons given by professionals working with the Music Service, and have learnt a lot on how to tailor teaching for each individual.

Tutoring Approach:

Music is about having fun, and sharing that fun with others when you play. It is so much more than just playing the notes in front of you - it is about how you approach and overcome challenges, trusting in your abilities and being confident in how you express yourself. Music must be accessible to all because I truly believe that what we learn about ourselves through music makes us a more balanced and comfortable human, well-equipped to address challenges beyond a tricky piece.
