Notes:

Performance Work.
From an early age, I have been gigging in bars, parties and functions all over the Midlands area, starting my musical career in a 3 piece band. I love the experience of performing for new people and connecting with others over music and art, and this passion has driven me to develop my act and hone my craft. After training I still gig in both the Midlands and Northern cities with my original material, and I have several weddings booked in for the upcoming year. Being an industry professional and working creatively has helped me stay in touch with the world of music, and is reflected in my teaching.

Teaching work.
Since I was still in school, I have always been interested in teaching. The interest then flourished when I took on a community choir during my years at sixth form college, where I started developing skills that required for me to play piano, sing, write harmonies on the spot and engage with my choir to keep them on track! I loved the challenges of working with all ages, and feel confident that I can translate teaching methods to suit all needs. I currently teach at Hatton’s School of Performing Arts on the BTEC level 3 Musical Theatre course. Here I have taught various lessons ranging from private to groups of 20 plus teenagers!

Having been in choirs myself, the teachers I have had have inspired me to work closely with others, and share the knowledge and experience that I have gained with new students.

Please feel free to get in contact with me regarding and questions about teaching, and I have reference available upon request!
