Personal Description:

I started learning the violin at the age of 4 and studied with the late Howard Davis, Winifred Roberts and Carmel Kaine. I completed a degree in music at Exeter University before completing my musical education with a post graduate performers course at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

My first love is chamber music and I perform regularly with many ensembles including the Regent Quartet, Reflection Strings and the Palatine String Quartet. I am also currently guest leader of Dorking Philharmonia.

In addition I perform with local orchestras including the Merriman Orchestra based at Cranleigh School, Guildford Opera Company and Southern Sinfonia.

Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching whilst at University and have taught at prestigious schools including the Royal Masonic School for Girls, St Nicholas' School in Fleet and South Hampstead High School. I teach all grades up to and including grade 8 and am able to accompany pupils in ABRSM exams saving the stress of having to find an accompanist.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe a structured approach to learning an instrument such as the violin gets the best results. I use studies and exercises in addition to scales and pieces to help increase technique and improve the overall quality of violin playing.

If needed I am able to teach up to and including Grade 5 theory to allow pupils to progress onto the higher grade exams.
