Personal Description:

ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM - 30 MIN FREE TASTER LESSON

I am a professional clarinettist, music tutor, workshop leader, and graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama with a BMus (Hons) – specialising in clarinet performance & woodwind tripling.

Tutoring Experience:

My practical qualifications include: DipABRSM - Clarinet Performance, Grade 8 Classical & Jazz Saxophone, Grade 8 Piano, Grade 6 Flute, and Grade 6 Music Theory.

I hold: an up-to-date DBS (available on the Update Service), CPD Certified 'Level 4 in Higher Learning Teaching Assistant' with Higher Distinction, EduCare 'NSPCC Child Protection Awareness' & 'NHS First Aid Essentials Level 2'. I am also registered with the Education Workforce Council as a 'School Learning Support Worker'.

Asides from instrumental tuition, I am passionate about enhancing transferable skills and bridging the gap between primary / secondary school music education.

I have support music in Wales as a dedicated and long-standing member of both: the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales. I am also an ambassador for Music in Hospitals & Care Wales - ensuring a continued commitment to music therapy through the joys of live music.

Tutoring Approach:

Since 2014, I have taught: Clarinet, Flute & Saxophone to an advanced level, and Piano, Singing & Music Theory to an intermediate level.

I offer an inclusive and inspiring approach to music tuition - encouraging all potential musicians to realise and achieve their goals.

A typical lesson includes development of: tone, technique, stamina, expression, theory, aural & general musicianship.

My teaching style is suitable for all types of musicians, from casual to expert, beginner to advanced - if you want to learn a new instrument, rediscover an old passion, work towards graded exams, or just play for fun!
