I have many years teaching experience.
Also experience teaching children and adults with special needs, learning difficulties, physical difficulties and hearing loss.

I have been playing music all my life and started to learn the piano at the age of 4 years old and Violin at 7 years old.

I grew up in a musical household and was listening to music every day and going to many concerts and rehearsals to see my parents perform.

When I was 17 I took my Grade 8 Violin achieving a distinction. I was front desk of the orchestra in my area.

When I was in my mid twenties I went to Edinburgh to studying Jazz and was also part of a vibrant jazz scene playing gigs and running musical events.

Returning back to London , I started a band and play in professional functions in and around London.

I run and manage a gypsy jazz ska band as well as playing at events around the UK as a solo saxophonist.

I also teach in schools as a music teacher and peripatetic teacher of violin, saxophone and piano.
