If you would like to play oboe or piano, whether you are an experienced musician or a complete beginner, why not get in touch for a free trial lesson?

About Me:
I studied oboe and piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London and did a degree in music at the University of Edinburgh.
As well as having extensive experience of teaching (privately and in schools), I enjoy playing chamber and orchestral music with musicians of all levels, from amateur to professional. I am a member of Dundee Symphony Orchestra, St Andrews Baroque Orchestra and St Andrews Community Orchestra and have been a guest player and soloist with various amateur orchestras in Scotland and Wales.

About You:
Many of my pupils have gained excellent results in the ABRSM exams, but I'm also happy to teach in an exam-free way if you would prefer it - exams can be helpful, but progress and enjoyment are not dependent on external accreditation. With children, particularly, I like to engage the imagination, as it is often a more effective tool for learning than theoretical explanation.
For many, the greatest joy of music is in playing with others, so I encourage my pupils to play duets, chamber music or in orchestras, if they want to do so.
The Alexander Technique has been very helpful in my own playing and I bring an awareness of its teachings to my lessons. Physical aspects such as general posture, arm position etc have a major impact on fluency, tone, performance anxiety and many other aspects of music-making - and playing in a relaxed, effective way makes it all so much more enjoyable!
