Child Protection Course:
Completed Educare child protection training course. (more)
Keeping Children Safe in Music is the latest in the EduCare's series of distance learning courses on child protection. The training programme uses short films to show a variety of good and bad practice examples, which will be available to watch online. It will help anyone teaching music to children gain a better understanding of their child protection responsibilities, and avoid situations that could lead to accusations of misconduct.

Instruments: violin / viola
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I travel to pupils' homes and teach in their home environment. I welcome adults from beginners to diploma standard as well as children, and hold an enhanced CRB certificate. I am able to teach at my home on some occasions, by arrangement with parents. Having had problems with chronic pain due to Hypermobility Syndrome/Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and arthritis since my teens, I have a great deal of awareness of the physical problems encountered by many violinists and as a result am able to offer consultation lessons particularly for bow arm and posture-related problems. As a member of City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, I can additionally offer orchestral coaching and preparation for orchestral auditions.

Pupils may need to be slightly flexible over lesson times due to the CBSO working hours, but I try to offer as much consistency as possible, particularly for the younger children.
