Personal Description:

Since graduating from the Royal College of Music, I have performed professionally in orchestras, chamber groups and the theatre, and teach at the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and at Graveney School

Orchestrally, I have worked and performed in venues including the Royal Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, Symphony Hall Birmingham and the London Palladium, and have toured around the world with a wide range of ensembles, mostly on my main instrument, the horn. During my studies in London and Denmark I performed in many concerts and masterclasses with world-leading musicians, and was awarded a performance of Mozart’s 3rd Horn Concerto. As a Musical Director I have conducted professional theatrical productions and worked with a number of choirs and choral societies, and my arrangements and orchestrations have been heard at the Glamis Proms, Curve Theatre Leicester, Trinity Theatre, and with the London Musical Theatre Orchestra.

Tutoring Experience:

I am on the teaching staff of the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, a world-renowned conservatoire at which I teach Horn, Chamber Music, and am called in to conduct ensemble rehearsals. Alongside my other post as Brass Teacher at Graveney School Tooting I have been teaching and tutoring privately for a number of years, successfully working with students diverse in age, ability and aim. From ages 6-62, those studying with me have started learning, progressed and improved existing skills, or even picked up their childhood instruments after decades away.

Tutoring Approach:

Some students find satisfaction and motivation marking their progress by taking grades as they develop, whereas others take lessons simply for the pleasure of learning an instrument. My pedagogic approach first and foremost encourages an enjoyment of making music, whilst constantly ensuring sound technical and musical ability, as it is a combination of both that enables whomever is learning to enjoy excelling. The key cyclical concept to establish in the mind of the student is that regular, deliberate practice leads to getting better, which means we enjoy playing more and feel more inclined to practise, leading to further improvements, and so on. Once this thought-process has been established, the student can take ownership over their development and my job becomes guiding their development instead of trying to drag them along, which is rewarding for no-one!
