I am a graduate with experience of teaching, composing and playing in a wide variety of genres, and enjoy teaching many different people aged from 4 years old to over 90!

My teaching is based on appreciating and fostering the individual interest and ability that each student brings, combined with careful planning, to cover, to an appropriate standard, all the varied aspects of instrumental playing, and music, including improvising, composing and playing by ear.

I keep up to date with the latest and best in instrumental technique, musicianship and teaching through membership of instrumental organisations (British Flute Society, and the Clarinet and Saxophone Society; and the Musicians Union), attendance at master classes, workshops, and instrumental teacher training events.
I was a mentor on the Trinity/ Open University training programme for KS2 instrumental teachers, and have experience of running larger scale and whole class instrumental teaching. I have also recently successfully completed the Trinity College CME (Certificate of Music Educators), which is a relatively recent innovation in music teacher training, one that focusses specifically on teaching music.

I provide students with a music diary for work between lessons, and for children/ young people, annual reports for parents at the end of the spring term.

I have extensive experience of successfully preparing students for music exams, up to and including grade 8, for both Associated Board and Trinity exams, both for regular and for jazz exams, and with helping prepare students for GCSE and A level performances.

I also run a number of recorder clubs in various local schools, and have developed a lot of material for Foundation and Year 1 groups, as well as arranging material for the recorder groups for older children in primary schools, usually up to about year 4.

I make sure that recorder group lessons are fun, with children developing transferable music skills, and also have created fun activities that help children to develop skills as budding woodwind instrumentalists.

I provide differentiated material, so that children can work at their own pace, and include improvising and composing as part of my scheduled work on the recorder.
