Notes:

I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Music with Italian student from Royal Holloway University of London and a first in performance.

I currently work with the London Youth Choir and the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, the Eton Choral Courses in the past and was the Artistic Director of the Orchard Singers, an outreach choir for Age UK.

I love music and I love teaching music: it is my absolute passion. Teaching music consists of two halves: form and function. Form is the art and the emotional performance. Function is the academia and theory behind it, the building blocks of music. It is essential to have an excellent understanding of both sides of the musical coin. In my work auditioning applicants for the London Youth Choir, I see many students who engage with the music but who lack the academic understanding that will enable them to progress. When teaching, I ensure the students have fun and engage with the music on an academic level as well as an artistic one. We work on performance, interpretation of text, sight reading, aural training and theory. I weave these approaches together, to make sure that the students are well-rounded musicians and not simply children or people who like to sing.

Our sessions will be completely tailored to what you want to do. If you are an adult learner who just wants to come and hone your technique and sing through some songs every week then that's what we'll do. Or if you're a parent preparing a child for 11+, choral trials or ABRSM graded exams then we will focus on that.

I am enthusiastic about music enjoy working with young and old!
