Personal Description:

I'm a professional and experienced recorder teacher with a degree from the Royal Academy of Music, offering lessons in Recorders and Music Theory. I moved to London for my degree 10 years ago and have been teaching here ever since. I love to teach, and find it a very rewarding way of giving back to the next generation. Music is an invaluable education.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 10 years experience, in one to one, and group tuition privately but also in masterclass and school environments. I teach all ages and abilities and follow the ABRSM exam syllabus. I've taught at masterclasses in the South of France with Atarah Ben Tovim MBE, on baroque style and ornamentation for recorder and flute students as well as working in outreach projects at primary schools in London. I've also taught weekly classes at different schools in London.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a friendly and focused teaching style. Improving core technique is important whilst expanding knowledge of repertoire and educating about the period. Also developing the student's musical voice and imagination - I try and make my lessons enjoyable for the student and varied as for me it's about inspiring them to want to be a better musician and to practise.
I teach beginners to advanced students preparing for degree auditions and enjoy all stages of tuition. I teach broad range of repertoire - from medieval to contemporary styles of music, including medieval, renaissance, baroque and contemporary to avant-garde compositions.

I teach the graded ABRSM Theory examinations up to grade 5, enabling students to progress onto the higher instrumental grades, and adding UCAS points for further education and awards.
