Currently teaching music in schools across Tyne and Wear, and County Durham (full class, small group, and individual). I provide flute tuition on Saturday mornings at Seaham Music Academy and teach flute privately at St Andrew's Kirk, Jesmond.
Instruments: Flute
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I provide flute lessons at St Andrews Kirk, Jesmond, to students of varied ages and abilities. I encourage students to take part in informal recitals at the Church should they wish to gain performance experience. I teach Grades 1- 8, start with basics, and move at a pace that suits you. Some of my students just play for fun.

In addition to teaching students privately, I play flute and piccolo for Sunderland Symphony Orchestra and perform regularly with them. I also teach music in schools across Sunderland and County Durham and at Seaham Music Academy.

If you’re unsure whether flute is the instrument for you, but would like to give it a go with my support, I can demonstrate a flute during an introductory lesson and provide you with an opportunity to try the flute headjoint (the part of the flute you blow through). For adults and children alike, making sounds on the flute headjoint is a great way of getting started and lays the foundations for a strong confident tone.

Lessons are 45 minutes in duration (£20). I will always try to find a time that is convenient for you.

I look forward to hearing from you!
