Violin Grade 8 Distinction

My qualifications include a BMus(Hons) from the University of Manchester and a PGDip from the Royal Northern College of Music. I also play with orchestras including Manchester Camerata and New London Orchestra. I have played at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and have recently toured with the orchestra .

I was awarded a full scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music, London, on the Artist Diploma course for chamber music 2015/16.

I was a member of Southbank Sinfonia 2011. I have played on Tony Hadley's (Spandau Ballet) recent UK tour, Russell Watson's 'Only One Man' UK tour and worked with other artists including Katherine Jenkins, Dionne Warwick and The Last Shadow Puppets.

In addition to the violin, I also have my ABRSM Grade 8 in both piano and saxophone.

Friendly, experienced and enthusiastic violin teacher with an Artist Diploma from the RCM and a Postgradute Performance Diploma from the RNCM. I have also participated in outreach work and education workshops within schools around the UK. I am currently the violin tutor in Parkgate House School in Clapham, London.

I teach from my home in central Bedford, just a short walk from Bedford station.

I am happy to prepare pupils for all ABRSM grades and beyond to Conservatoire level. However, not all students are interested in taking exams and simply want to learn the violin, and this is also fine.Playing a musical instrument is extremely rewarding, whether it is to take exams or to take up a new hobby. It is never too late to learn, so if you have thought about it, give it a go!

I am happy to offer a free consultation lesson.

Flexible hours. All ages welcome!
