I teach from home in Bassett, but other arrangements may be possible for an extra charge.

For me as a teacher, I am passionate about instilling enjoyment into lessons. Partly this is brought by playing games etc based on knowledge acquired that lesson. It also comes about by giving students a sense of pride in their achievements. It is very important that a student is taught to play with good technique so as to both enforce this sense of pride and also avoid injury.

I have worked for the Junior Department at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and City Music Services in Canary Wharf. I now teach privately at home and at Richard Taunton and Barton Peveril Sixth Form Colleges. I have experience teaching a wide range of ages, including teaching music in Uganda, Palestine and at the Ingenium International Academy for Music.

DBS/CRB checked.

I have worked with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, English National Ballet, Orchestra of Welsh National Opera, Southern Pro Musica, British Sinfonietta, Sinfonia Cymru and Welsh Session Orchestra.

I'm happy to teach in preparation for exams/auditions/performances or just for fun. Please don't hesitate to contact with any questions.
