Biography

I am a versatile and experienced violinist based in Kent, regularly engaged as a freelance solo, orchestral and chamber musician across the UK.

I am also a dedicated teacher, tutoring students of all ages, from absolute beginner to advanced level on violin and viola. I also offer piano and music theory lessons up to intermediate level.

My mission is to help develop students' own unique sense of musicianship, in a rewarding and enjoyable environment. I am lucky enough to have developed longstanding relationships with many of my students, and find it incredibly rewarding to watch them progress.

I take pride in ensuring my students receive tuition that is stimulating technically and musically, whilst always being enjoyable, constructive and enriching. As a violinist in professional ensembles, I teach by demonstration and aim to develop technique, musicality and versatility in my students' playing.

My current students range from beginner through to grade 8, diploma and beyond (ABRSM and Trinity boards), both at my home in Canterbury and in Kent schools. I hold a 100% pass rate with ABRSM and Trinity exam boards, with many students achieving Merit or Distinction.

I give a realistic and sound outlook when helping students prepare for performances, including exam preparation and auditions. I also equally encourage students that simply wish to play for enjoyment and believe that it's never too late to pick up an instrument!

My experience also extends to leading workshops and orchestras for all abilities. I also put on a yearly concert to encourage my students to perform to family and friends and to develop a passion for performance.

Please get in touch by phone or email if you would like to book a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!
