I have taught class and instrumental music for 15 years. Having completed my performance degree, I trained as a teacher and have been Head of Music at a Suffolk school my entire teaching career.
Stepping down from this role, I have chosen to work as a freelance musician. I perform with several local semi-professional ensembles in orchestral and pit band settings. I also enjoy arranging and have collaborated with several singer-songwriters in creating string arrangements for albums.
As an instrumental tutor, I have taught all abilities - from complete beginners to post-grade 8 students - and also all ages (from age 5 to adult). Whilst many students like to work towards exams, I recognise that is not always the case. I believe the most important thing is to gain pleasure from music making and improve your skill level through working in the manner which best suits you. As such, I am flexible in the repertoire which is studied, giving choice to my students but also encouraging them to discover new composers or musicians.
