I am a freelance professional horn player and brass tutor based in Manchester. I have worked with orchestras around the UK, including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Birmingham Opera Company, Thursford Christmas Spectacular and Welsh National Opera.

I have a lot of experience in working within the youth music scene, including my current role as Head of Pastoral Staff and Administrator at the Benedetti Foundation. I have worked at the National Children's Orchestras of Great Britain as social staff since 2014 and I was the French horn mentor on their recent NCOnline response to Covid-19.
In 2017, I was a Graduate Music Assistant at Wells Cathedral School where I had the opportunity to lead brass ensembles, French horn sectionals and outreach p-brass classes.

I am experienced in teaching adults and children for both grade-focused lessons or learning music for fun!
