I started teaching violin and piano whilst I was studying at Birmingham Conservatoire. I have taught students from the age of 6 to 60 and those with no experience to those more advanced, who are looking to stretch their skills further. During my studies, I undertook performance coaching, which delves into the psychology of performance and how you can find practical strategies to help cope with nerves and use the adrenaline in a positive way. In addition, I studied Dalcroze techniques, which incorporates movement with music, and a variety of pedagogical strategies. After completing my BMus, I trained as a primary school teacher at the University of Birmingham, and have been working in schools ever since. I also lead a local amateur orchestra, providing professional advice, demonstrations and performing solos.

Lessons will be catered specifically for the individual and can include:
- a range of games to support technique development
- oral exercises, including singing, to develop your musical ear
- movement to music to help find pulse and develop a sense of rhythm
- ensemble playing with myself
- performance coaching
- music theory

I am more than happy to submit students in for exams, but this is not compulsory. I always try to make my lessons as engaging and enjoyable as possible.

I may be able to travel to students' homes within the local area.
