MMus Guildhall student. University of Bristol graduate. Over 200 hours of teaching experience.
I am a flautist, recorder player and drummer.
I am studying for an MMus in Historical Performance on recorder at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, generously supported by the Michael James Musical Trust, a Derek Butler award from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, and a scholarship award from the Guildhall School. My principal teacher is Professor Ian Wilson.
I play the flute and piccolo to diploma level, and drum kit to post-grade 8 level. I have performed in symphony orchestras for several years (including the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain and the University of Bristol Symphony Orchestra), as well as in wind bands, Baroque orchestras and consorts, Irish folk bands, rock and jazz bands.
I have recently graduated with a BA (hons) degree in Music from the University of Bristol, where I specialised in musicology as well as performance.
I have two professional performance diplomas, and an A* in OCR A level Music.
My past teachers have included Rebecca Prosser, John Bence, Liz May, Joanna Kirkwood and Karen Hardy. I have participated in masterclasses with Robert Ehrlich, Karel van Steenhoven, Annabel Knight, Katherine Bryan and Claire Overbury.
