I have recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, under the tutelage of Peter Dykes (RSNO), Stephane Rancourt (Halle) and Stephen West (ex Cor-Anglais, RSNO).

My teaching is relaxed and enjoyable, and I can plan lessons to suit your needs- whether it be progressing through the grades, or just playing for fun! The oboe is a beautiful instrument, and I enjoy working with my pupils to make the best sound possible so that they can enjoy playing- be it in solo performances, as part of small chamber groups or even in larger ensembles and orchestras across Scotland.

I have been a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland since September 2016 and I have also had various orchestral experiences with the RSNO, SCO, BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Young Musicians' Symphony Orchestra in London, and abroad in the International Lutoslawski Youth Orchestra.

In addition, I also undertook piano second-study as part of my first year at the RCS, as well as a further piano accompaniment module, so am able to accompany graded exams up to grade 3/4.

I currently teach from my flat in West Graham Street, which is just a 10-minute walk from Glasgow Queen Street, or 20 minutes from Glasgow Central. I am also happy to teach via Zoom or an online platform of your choice.

You can either contact me on: 07731 881524, or [email protected]

I look forward to hearing from you!
