Ex NYJO, studied flute at LCM then won a Cripplegate Scholarship from the City of London to study on the Jazz Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Released debut album of original jazz flute compositions and improvisations, featuring ethnic flutes and sax, electronics and extended techniques 'Fly By Wire' on FMR records, distributed by Harmonia Mundi in 1997.

I have 25 years experience as a teacher, performer, recording artist, examiner and composer, orchestra and band wind section coach. Publishers of my compositions for flute ensembles, duets and woodwind include Valentine Music, Spartan Press, AC Black, Hunt Edition and Henri Lemoine.

I am a freelance musician, working in studios and venues with various individual musicians/groups. It is a real priviledge to pass on to my pupils the playing, recording, touring, examining and directing experience I have gained over the past years and also to give them the musical opportunities that I was not fortunate enough to have during my school years.

Award students who have learned continuously with me throughout their Secondary education usually attain Grade 7/8 on flute/saxophone (or equivalent standard) by the time they have left their sixth form studies, some with diplomas.

My teaching philosophy is to enable my pupils to be the best they can be. I tailor my lessons to each individual pupil and expect them to undertake regular practice in preparation for weekly lessons in order for them to maintain progress. I issue ISM contracts at the beginning of each term/session of lessons.

Some sound samples of my playing and jazz compositions can be found by clicking on the 'media' tab on the top of this profile. Pupil sound files to follow shortly.

Happy listening!

I am fully CRB checked through the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians), The Bishops Stortford High School for Boys and Redbridge Music Service and School.

I have ISM Registered Private Teacher status and hold 3 current Child Protection Certificates.

There was a musician called Kate,
Who took to the flute rather late.
She's taught a long while, in every style,
And she still loves teaching to date!
