Biography

Since graduating in 2009 from the University of Leeds, I have worked professionally in music education. I achieved grade 8 saxophone and piano when studying for my A-Levels and now have a DipABRSM in performance.

After graduating, I worked as an instrumental teacher in Nottingham and for the subsequent 4 years I taught saxophone, piano, flute and clarinet in both primary and secondary schools. I held the position of lead teacher of music at Oak Field School in Nottingham for 3 and a half years during this period.

In 2014, I was graded OFSTED ‘outstanding’ and I completed my secondary music PGDE in 2015 at Nottingham Trent University. I have also taught a GCSE course in expressive arts

I have performed with both Leeds Symphonic Wind Orchestra, Nottingham Symphonic Wind Orchestra and will be performing with Nottingham Symphony Orchestra this summer. I have played in ensembles in theatres and with jazz and wedding bands around the Midlands.

I have been a private instrumental teacher since before graduating from University and last year I had several students take their grade 8 music exams, including one who is now studying for a diploma and set to study at the Royal College of Music. This particular student achieved 145 in their grade 8 and I accompanied them when they were invited to perform for the Lord Mayor of Nottingham at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music high scorers’ concert.

Having performed with Nottingham Youth Jazz Orchestra since I was 11, I now co-conduct and rehearse the ensemble which perform across Nottinghamshire and have performed at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, Ronnie Scott’s and on Blue Peter! I am on the committee for the orchestra and annually organise a tour to the Edinburgh Festival.

I am now based in Birmingham and am looking to take on new students of all abilities.
