I am an enthusiastic piano teacher with 8 years experience in music education and as a professional musician. Since graduating from Leeds College of Music in 2010 I have taught piano individually and in groups to students of all ages, all abilities and a range of styles. As a professional musician I most recently received a nomination for the BASCA British Composer Award 2018 and have had original projects featured on BBC Radio 2, 3, & 6 as well as touring throughout Europe at major festivals. My professional experience combined with my educational experience gives me a unique insight into how to learn, create and perform music, whatever the style!
Since graduating from Leeds College of Music 8 years ago I have been involved in music education. I have taught privately from my home and around Leeds, in schools around Yorkshire as a peripatetic teacher and provided workshops with the charity Live Music Now for children and adults with learning disabilities.
