I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher based West London. I have taught a large number of students ranging in ages 6-60; from absolute beginner to advanced Diploma level. Previously, I have worked for the Purcell School and Hertfordshire Music Service, and am now a visiting tutor at two schools in London. I teach not only flute, but also piano (Early levels) and music theory. I have a thorough and up-to-date knowledge of both ABRSM and Trinity exam requirements.

When I am not teaching, I perform as a freelance musician and am studying at the Royal College of Music. I have played on stages ranging from Wigmore Hall London, Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam, to Latitude Festival UK. I have worked with orchestras including the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Britten Pears Orchestra, Orpheus Sinfonia and have trained side-by-side with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

My teaching mantra is that above all, learning an instrument should be enjoyable and exciting! I absolutely love to share my life’s passion through teaching. Frequently, I organise both formal and informal performance opportunities for my students so that they can not only have goals, but also enjoy the experience of sharing their own musical development with friends and family.

Currently, I can teach online via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime etc. Or, depending on up-to-date COVID restriction advice, I can teach students in their own home. I am currently unable to offer lessons in my own home. I offer a lower rate for online lessons, and a £5 discount for the first lesson.

Online lessons:
30 mins - £30
45 mins - £35
60 mins - £40

In-Person lessons:
30 mins - £35

Please feel free to get in touch with any queries you may have about learning with me!
