PLEASE NOTE: I CURRENTLY HAVE NO VACANCIES. I will update this profile in the new academic year if I have spaces for new students.
After studying music at school and achieving all piano grades, I was awarded a Guildhall School of Music Diploma in Piano Duet performance. I went on to study Music at Goldsmiths College, London where I accompanied soloists, singers and choirs in both small- and large-scale performances.
Aside from teaching, I have been heavily involved with the Birmingham Rep Theatre, acting as assistant Musical Director and rehearsal pianist for many Young Rep productions such as Just So and Songs for a New World. I have also worked as repetiteur and Assistant MD at the Grove Theatre, Dunstable.

I have an enthusiastic and experienced approach to teaching from beginner to Grade 8 standard on piano and music theory.
