I am an RNCM graduate, working as a professional freelance double bass player and teacher in the North West. I have recently played with orchestras including the Halle Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, CBSO, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Liverpool Philharmonic. I am also principal double bass of Skipton Camerata, a professional chamber orchestra.

I have a wealth of teaching experience both privately and within music services and am consistantly rated Outstanding by OFSTED.

My students are all offered regular opportunities to perform in concerts, and have gone on to join the RLPO youth orchestra and Greater Manchester String Orchestra.

All ages and standards welcome. Lessons are tailored to the needs of the student and I offer the opportunity to work towards ABRSM or Trinity exams where appropriate.

I am able to teach at my home or the home of the student. Fees are calculated on an individual basis, please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

I have full CRB clearance and am a member of the ISM.
