I am an enthusiastic piano teacher with 10 years experience in music education and as a professional musician. Since graduating from Leeds College of Music in 2010 I have taught piano individually and in groups to students of all ages, all abilities and a range of styles. As a professional musician I most recently received a nomination for the BASCA British Composer Award 2018 and have had original projects featured on BBC Radio 2, 3, & 6 as well as touring throughout Europe at major festivals.

My professional experience combined with my educational experience gives me a unique insight into how to learn, create and perform music, whatever the style!

If you are either a parent looking for a new teacher for your child, someone looking to improve on certain aspects of your playing or a complete beginner of any age, I can help you fulfil your ambitions.
