Jean has a thriving flute teaching practice based in central Edinburgh, covering all ages & stages, and has many years' experience teaching, conducting & coaching chamber music in a variety of schools and further education settings including St. George's School, George Watson's College, Fettes College, Strathallan School, St. Mary's Music School, Napier Polytechnic (now Napier University) and St. Andrews University.
