COVID-19 Update: Given the current situation, students are currently being provided with online video lessons. I've also been delighted to welcome new students to this platform, so if you are looking to break the cabin fever with a new or returning hobby, please just get in touch!

Previously the Assistant Curriculum Leader at Harrogate Grammar School and more recently Head of Music at Fulford School, I now work as Partnership Director of Performing Arts across the SCRC Academy Trust.

With significant experience of teaching Music from Foundation Stage, right through to GCSE and A-Level, I am able to bring my skills and knowledge into private practice and am confident in teaching students of all ages. Please see the testimonials tab for some very kind words from students and parents, both past and present!

I have a 100% ABRSM pass rate across over 20 years of private teaching, with 65% of students achieving Merit or Distinction grades. At Grade 8, over 70% of students have achieved a Merit or Distinction.

Specialisms include beginners and students with SEND, Jazz and improvisation, technical remediation, classical saxophone performance, 20th century repertoire and composition.

Performances, recordings and compositions can be heard here:

All lessons are taught at my home near Howden, East Riding.
