I am a performer and educator who challenges notions about the roles and benefits of music for people of all ages. If you are interested in a different approach, have been let down by prior music tuition, or are a person (or parent of a person) who values creativity and individuality then perhaps I can help!

Having been educated formally I have seen the benefits and the restrictions in the way in which music is taught and consumed and I address this in my work.

My main aim as a teacher is to make learning music a fun, collaborative and constructive experience, whilst nurturing rigour through personal inquiry into musical technique, genres, theory and performance.

I have over 18 years of teaching experience, working with a wide range of musical styles including Western classical, jazz, folk, pop, electronica and basic elements of Indian classical and African percussion music. I am highly experienced with using the production software Ableton Live, as well as Cubase and Reason.

I am an empathetic teacher able to recognise strengths in all of my students and enjoy encouraging and nurturing people's own interests. I see music as an important means of self-expression which encourages creativity and self-discipline across all areas of study.
