Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I teach oboe and cor anglais from beginner to advanced level (up to conservatoire entrance), and offer reed-making and music theory lessons either alongside this or separately.

I can also offer general musicianship advice and assistance, for example for GCSE or A Level exams.


I have been teaching privately since 2015, and have been a visiting oboe tutor at schools such as Marlborough College (Wiltshire), Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School (Shepherd's Bush) and King Edward VI School (Southampton), as well as at Barnet Music Service (BEAT). I have also given group oboe masterclasses and mentored students at Guernsey Music Service and In Harmony Lambeth, amongst others.

As a professional oboist, my recent orchestral experience includes a contract as Principal Oboe with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra in Sweden from 2018 - 19, and extensive freelance work with orchestras around the world such as the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

I also appeared in the on-stage orchestra for the National Theatre's production of 'Amadeus' from 2016 - 2018.
