Personal Description:

Specialties: - Theatre and Performance

I love teaching (planning to also get a PGCE) drama and other humanities subjects! I can also help you with your public speaking.

I can play guitar and drums and teach people to play by feeling and by ear. My goal with my music lessons is to keep things fun and to develop your skills while playing and learning new songs. For drums I can also teach how to read drum notes, for guitar, I teach using tablature, chords, and a help to develop a listening ear (so you can play things you hear).

I am also very handy with computer and can teach many different computer skills. Send me an message and tell me what you need!
