Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I graduated in 2008 with BMus(hons) and a Postgraduate Diploma from the prestigious Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Since then I have enjoyed an exciting life as a freelance musician performing with many professional orchestras such as Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Ballet Orchestra, Manchester Concert Orchestra and Santiago Philhamonica.

I am a member of the Korda String Quartet and we perform regularly at weddings and functions all over Scotland. Alongside my performance career I have enjoyed teaching privately for many years as well as teaching the violin and viola for Stirling and East Renfrewshire Council. These jobs involved teaching one-to-one as well as in a small group setting as well as coaching the orchestra and string ensemble. I currently hold a position with 'Beatroute Arts' a string project set up in the East End providing tuition and lessons to children in that catchment area.

I have experience of the 'Colourstrings' method of music tution as I was an assistant to some classes and my little girl is currently going along to a weekly class. This method is fantastic and makes music and notation learning fun and easily accessible, I try to incorporate this style of learning into my lessons. This summer I will be attending the violin teaching course to learn more about how I can use Sol-fa and Dalcroze in my own lessons.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch and hopefully we can arrange your first lesson!
