Personal Description:

I hold two music performance degrees from Edinburgh Napier University and the Royal Northern College in Manchester. My musical experience covers a huge range from playing in classical orchestras, pit bands for musicals, touring Scotland as part of a contemporary band and even appearing in the orchestra in the recent Downton Abbey film.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been teaching for several years in a variety of settings. I began teaching for a private music school before teaching woodwind for Midlothian Council and helping run community music workshops every week. Now I teach for Edinburgh School of Music, Portobello Music School and privately in my own home.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is very fun-based. If you're not enjoying it, I change tactics. Even preparation for exams and music theory can be fun! I am a classically trained musician and technique and ability play a large part in my lessons; if you can play scales ten ways instead of one, music with that scale will be easier.
I do however create a warm, engaging environment and let choice play a large role in what we look at. Sometimes the lesson can be based entirely around exams; sometimes it can be based around learning your favourite song by ear.
