I currently live in Hull - spending the majority of my time teaching. I started playing the violin at age 5, then piano at 9. Once I had achieved grade 8 violin I took up the viola (age 14); and completed the set with a singing grade 8 just before I left school. I studied music technology at A level, which began my passion for sound engineering. It was my A-level music teacher who suggested I had a flare for composition; after which I was offered a scholarship to Trinity College of Music, in its beautiful setting in fabulous Greenwich on the south bank of the Thames. Here I secured my BMus (Hons) degree in 2011. Since then, taught by the venerable Richard Crabtree, I have achieved my DipABRSM and LTCL on viola, and continued a prolific and eclectic portfolio career.

I love making my career out of music I cannot imagine a more rewarding occupation; consistently challenging and always diverse! I particularly love teaching and have students ranging from 5-61 years. My teaching motto is: if the first way didn't work for you, then I need to find another way to teach it. Every student is different in their characteristics and needs and I relish finding new ways to help them all progress in their own unique fashion. My students all know I will always strive for perfection - but the most important thing is that students enjoy their music making!

As a performer, I have played many type of music. I spent a year playing keys in a function band covering all types of music from 1940s swing to 60s soul and modern pop; and was the violinist in the marvellous ELO Experience for a short time in 2014. I also accompany the Maureen Hunter Singers on the piano and will always accompany students in exams as much as I can. Finally, I am continuing to study towards my diplomas on the piano and viola - you can bet I would never ask a student to do anything I don't do myself!

Thanks for reading!
