I enjoy teaching students of all ages and ability. Teaching students to play by ear as well as learning to read music competently - making sure lessons are fun and enjoyable.

Students who have requested to do exams have passed associated board exams - grades 1-8 with 100% pass rate and 80% distinction.

I also teach students who regularly successfully audition for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, music scholarships and specialist music schools. A number of my adult students are often professional brass musicians - from music teachers to members of a military band e.g The Royal Scot's Guards. I also train professional actors who need to use brass instruments in their theatre productions.

In addition to my qualifications, I am fully registered with the General Teaching Council of Scotland (GTCS) and regularly update my enhanced disclosure. (Disclosure Scotland).

My teaching extends outwith my home teaching studio to coaching students at St Mary's Music School, Edinburgh City Council and being a guest tutor at Mansfield University in the USA. I am also tutor of trumpet at Edinburgh College and a board member of the Edinburgh Youth Orchestra.
