Personal Description:

I lead a busy and diverse performing and teaching life. My freelance work allows me to perform as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. I have performed across the UK, including at The Edinburgh Fringe, Southbank Centre, Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury Festival, Deal Festival, Sacconi Festival, Leicester Guildhall and Trinity Arts Centre. I love playing in the theatre and recently performed as part of Half a Strings ‘Boulder’ at the Edinburgh Festival and in a production of ‘The Frogs’ for House on a Hill Productions at Jermyn Street Theatre. I also received the Christ Church Music Department Scholarship for two consecutive years and was also awarded the Canterbury Arts Council Scholarship and Lord Lieutenants Fund Grant. Alongside performing, I am an enthusiastic and dedicated peripatetic cello teacher with experience in orchestral, ensemble and individual educational settings. I encourage my students to become musically independent by constantly broadening their imaginations and skill base, helping them to develop a unique musical voice.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for over eight years within institutions such as Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Guildhall Junior Department, Centre for Young Musicians, King's School Rochester, Lambeth Music Service, King Solomon Academy Colourstrings Cello Teacher and Kent Music. I have taught complete beginners to diploma and from ages 6 to 70. I am passionate about bringing musicians together to learn from each other and enjoy playing together. I have taught at Oxford Cello School, Cello Love and East Kent Music Summer Course.

Tutoring Approach:

I study methods such as Colourstrings, Dalcroze and Kodály and adapt them to suit each individual student. I also draw upon past lessons from wonderful teachers such as Sue Lowe, William Bruce, Matthew Sharp and Kwesi Edman. I use my own continuous studies to bring together exciting and creative lessons for each student. The more strands and ideas that I can draw upon to inspire students, the better!
