I welcome pupils of all abilities and experience in both violin and singing.

I teach violin pupils from the age of 6.
I recommend singers wait until they are 10 or 11 before beginning lessons.
At the other end of the spectrum, it is never too late to begin music lessons, so I welcome adults too!

I choose to focus my singing teaching on work with girls, boys with unbroken voices and women. Once the voice has broken, I feel that male pupils are better served by a male singing teacher.

My approach is broad; I aim to develop my pupils' overall musicianship hand in hand with their instrumental / vocal skills. This has grown out of my own background; I draw on my wide experience as a professional violinist to enhance my vocal work and am able to offer my violin pupils a singerís perspective on instrumental music.

Following the lifting of all legal Covid-related restrictions on 19th July, I am now welcoming pupils back for in-person lessons, However, I am asking pupils and parents to observe safety protocols to minimise the risk of spreading Covid-19 through my teaching practice and to protect the health and safety of everyone who comes to my home. Please note that it is not possible to eliminate all risk of contracting Covid-19 during in-person music lessons. Risk assessments and protocols are intended to minimise the risk of transmitting the virus as far as is practically possible. My Risk Assessment is available to view on request.

I am happy to offer online lessons to pupils who would prefer to learn remotely.

I hold a DBS Enhanced Certificate.

I am a Fellow of the Incorporated Society of Musicians.
