I am a violin teacher and performer with over 12 years experience teaching the violin at all levels from beginner to advanced, degree level and adult amateur. I am a member of the instrumental teaching faculty at Royal Holloway University of London and teach regularly as a deputy at Junior Academy London. My students have played in National Youth Orchestra and National Children's Orchestra. I have guided many pupils successfully in preparing for grade exams although I am equally happy structure my students progress away from the exam system. I use a fun approach to teaching where technique is taught in a practical way with a strong focus on musical expression. I place huge importance on teaching my students how to practise and how to love playing and practising- just as I do. My students learn in an encouraging, happy and relaxed atmosphere that is all about exploring wonderful music using a wonderful instrument- the magic of the violin!

I perform regularly with some of the UK's finest orchestras and ensembles. I am member of City of London Sinfonia, leader of the Orchestra of English Touring Opera and play regularly in the acclaimed John Wilson Orchestra. I am a very experienced chamber musician as part of various ensembles including the Berkeley Ensemble with whom I have recorded numerous cds and performed in festivals throughout the UK. My wealth of experience as a performer greatly informs my teaching in a way that keeps my teaching style relevant, fresh and lively.
