Biography

The violin has provided me now with twelve years of enjoyable music-making ranging from performing Bartok’s violin duets at Bridgewater Hall with the current leader of the Hallé orchestra to playing in masterclasses with Baroque specialists.

I studied at Birmingham Conservatoire with Nic Fallowfield and was awarded an entrance scholarship as well as being one of only five students to receive the Leverhulme Trust scholarship from my year group. Prior to this I had received an award from the John W R Taylor Memorial Trust Fund which is given to exceptional instrumental students from Staffordshire.

I am currently continuing to study with Diana Cummings (professor of violin at the Royal Academy of Music).

I was leader of the British Police Symphony Orchestra which performs regularly in the Midlands and annually at Symphony Hall. A recent performance was of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade at Symphony Hall where I played the solo parts.

I also taught as a peripatetic teacher for ‘Music for Life’, a music service based in Cheshire and Staffordshire, in Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges, prior to moving to Oxford.

I ensure my lessons are tailored to each pupil and am happy to teach people violin, piano and/or theory that are eager to learn just for enjoyment or people who are keen to take the graded music exams. I like to make my lessons balanced between performance and musicianship to enable my pupils to be rounded and confident musicians.

I currently have students who have won full scholarships and exhibitions to prestigious schools both locally and nationally such as Oxford High, Abingdon Boys School and Eton.
