I have been teaching instrumental and theory lessons peripatetically for a number of years. This includes working for the Sage Gateshead's In Harmony programme, where I am brass tutor and brass specialist. I am also head of brass tuition at the Northern Music Centre and teach privately.

My instrumental learning began at the age of 6 in my local brass band in Lancashire. This eventually lead to graduating from Newcastle University with a First Class (hons) degree in Music. I have had a broad playing experience across many genres and settings. Originally classically trained, I spent a lot of my degree and afterwords branching out into different genres. I have experience in Jazz, Latin, Pop, Folk, Funk, Blues and classical. I have played in pit bands for numerous musical productions which include West Side Story and Hairspray. I have also studied and experienced Chinese and Eastern Musics whilst on a year studying abroad in Hong Kong.

Currently, I play in a band with whom I record, write, and play gigs around the World. I also do some session musician work, recording for bands and studios around the North East.

My extensive experience in different genres and performing settings means that I can give a student a rounded music tuition and also find the genre/style which they prefer or want to play. Playing an instrument is an art and it is important that students are doing what they enjoy!

I have my own transport so can travel long distances for lessons and would usually travel to the student.

Please feel free to send me a message or a phone call to discuss lessons/direction.
