I am a firm believer that music should be an opportunity for everyone to enjoy, at whatever age or ability; with my wide experience of both violin performance and teaching, I can offer my pupils a wealth of knowledge and guidance.

I gained a 1st class honours degree in violin performance from Trinity Laban, and in this time built up a vast repertoire of both solo and orchestral works. My passion for violin performance has seen me hold principle positions with the Trinity Laban Sinfonia, Symphony Orchestra, String Ensemble and orchestras in East Sussex where I grew up. Notable venues that I have performed in include the Royal Albert Hall, St John Smith Square, Fairfield Halls, La Madeleine in Paris and the Slovak Radio Hall in Bratislava to name a few.

I also have a keen interest in chamber music and perform regularly with my string quartet in both competitions and concerts across the South East.

I teach both adults and children at my home in Battle, but I can travel to your home at a small additional cost if that is better suited to you.

I am a registered private teacher with ABRSM and I use this exam board when a pupil is ready to take a graded exam. Whilst I believe grades can be a useful measure for success, I am more interested in the pupil's rounded musical & technical development; this often means it is not appropriate to race through the grades with zero regard to other repertoire.

I am happy to teach anyone from complete beginners to more advanced pupils who would perhaps need help for an exam or audition. Having studied with some of the UK's most renowned violinists, I can work thoroughly with my pupils to ensure that they become the best violinist they can be. My teaching style is best suited to those willing to put in the daily practice required to progress efficiently and therefore make our lessons enjoyable, too!

Please note that if I travel to you, an additional travel fee of £5 will incur.
