I spent 4 years completing my undergraduate degree in performance at the Royal Northern College of Music and went onto to complete a postgraduate diploma which I achieved with distinction. During my time at RNCM I was awarded 2nd prize in the RNCM viola competition. Following this I gained a place on the prestigious Halle Leadership Scheme where I was fortunate enough to spend a year performing with the Halle and also receiving mentoring from their principal violist, Tim Pooley.

I regularly perform with the Halle, BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata, Liverpool Philharmonic and Opera North and enjoy balancing my freelance career with performing, teaching and outreach projects.

I believe that everyone has the ability to be a good musician - with the right teacher to unlock your potential anything is possible! I also think that it's very important that learning an instrument is enjoyable. I think of imaginative ways for my students to practise to that it doesn't seem a chore and ensures maximum use of time. There's nothing worse than practising for an hour and feeling you haven't achieved anything by the end. Ultimately I think it's important to structure the lesson to suit each student as every student will have a different goal. It is important to make sure that it's their goal they're working towards and not mine.

I have experience teaching 1-1 and also with large groups. I have taught at music services such as Sefton Music Service, Salford Music Service and the Zion Arts Centre and have also taught on the Pro Corda North Course, a chamber music course for young people between the ages of 8 - 18.
