I am an experienced oboist having performed with a number of professional ensembles in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Norway and further afield. I was recently a semi-finalist in the woodwind category of the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in Saint Petersburg.

I hold a Masters degree in oboe performance from the Universität Mozarteum, Salzburg and a Bachelor degree from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris. I also previously studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
I also hold a master degree in the performance of contemporary music after studying at the Internationale Ensemble Modern Akademie (IEMA) in Frankfurt.
I have been lucky enough to study with the likes of Stefan Schilli, David Walter, Nora Cismondi, Christian Hommel and Christian Schmitt.

In addition to all styles of classical music (baroque - contemporary), I also enjoy playing folk/celtic music.

I have experience teaching private students of all levels and ages and am able to do so in English, French or German. I have also given a masterclass for the students of a previous teacher and have helped out at various oboe days in schools in the SE.

My approach to oboe tuition is to give my students the tools they need in order to musically express themselves in they way they wish to, whilst also making sure that they are well informed in historical performance practise (I have previously studied the baroque oboe and the harpsichord) and appropriate style according to the musical genre.

I believe that all students should be encouraged to develop their own musical personality regardless of their age, standard or ability.

As well as teaching on a more regular basis, I am more than happy to offer one-off tuition for exam or performance preparation for advanced students. This includes help with contemporary music techniques or the preparation of a contemporary work.

I additionally offer lessons in reedmaking (modern oboe, oboe d'amore, cor anglais and baroque oboe reeds). 

I prefer to teach invested students who have already reached a good standard. However, I would consider teaching beginners on the oboe who already have experience with music or other instruments.

I currently live full-time in Germany but am often in the UK. Please email me and we can find a solution. I am happy to offer online lessons, too !
