Biography

I have been playing the violin and piano for over 20 years now, graduating in 2015 from the Royal College of Music with a first class bachelors degree, and have recently started an Adavanced Diploma in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, a post-masters course. I have performed extensively all over the UK as soloist, most notably as a strings finalist on BBC young musician of the year and at the Battle Proms series to audiences of up to 12,000. I have also delved into the Folk world a little, and was on tv for the BBC radio 2 folk awards as part of Jim Moray's band!

I started officially teaching at just 17, coaching a local teachers more advanced students. From there I became Professor Berent Korfker's private assistant at 18, teaching his younger students from the Purcell school and alike. Being able to work with such talented students was extremely inspiring and excited me to start my own class with complete beginners on both violin and piano. I now have a hugely mixed class in both ability and age (4 to over 50!) with a 100% pass rate in their exams.

My approach to teaching always depends on the students age, ability and character. For younger students I incorporate games, with them often wondering how the lessons finished so quickly! I like to create a fun environment for musical development where questions are encouraged, and all students are taught how to teach themselves and apply techniques learnt in the lesson to the practice room.
