My music teaching experience to date includes freelance instrumental, vocal and theory tuition for pupils of all ages, group lessons for children, classroom teaching of undergraduates, supplementary A Level coaching, academic support for university students of all levels, widening participation, and lifelong learning.

I currently coach children training to join the Cathedral Choir in Bradford, teaching principles of singing, theory, general musicianship, and relevant specifics of cathedral music.

My approach to teaching is student-led in the first instance; I will work with you to establish your personal goals in developing your skills and confidence as a singer and musician, whether that involves entering for formal qualifications, working towards particular performances or auditions, or other specific aims. I teach from my home in Saltaire, but would consider short commutes in some circumstances. Any parents bringing children or young people to lessons are always welcome to sit in with a cup of tea.

The best thing about developing musicianship and training in styles you enjoy is how much more satisfying and rewarding it can be to make music when you build up your confidence. I look forward to hearing from any potential students who are interested in progressing as a singer and musician, and am open to discussions about how we might best work together to meet your goals.
