Tutoring Experience:

The achievements of my students stand as a testament to our collective effort: winning competitions, securing places in prestigious junior music schools and national youth orchestras, and excelling in exams with merits and distinctions. I've also guided students through their music GCSEs and A levels, assisting in their performance preparation and even partnering in ensemble pieces. My goal is to nurture not just their musical talent but also their confidence and independence in practice and performance.

Tutoring Approach:

Teaching music is not just my profession, it's a passion deeply rooted in a belief that has guided me from a young age: "Teach a child music, and you bring joy to their entire life." Music, to me, is more than a language; it's a medium of expression, a bridge connecting emotions and experiences. The joy of imparting this gift to students and witnessing their growth in confidence and skill is immeasurable.

My approach to planning and delivering music lessons is tailored to the unique needs of each student, taking into account their age, personality, and level. I have over ten yours of experience in teaching, including roles at Highgate School, St Dunstan School and private tutoring. I have taught student from all ages and levels.
