COVID-19 notice: I am providing online instrumental lessons and tutoring during any periods of lockdown or social distancing. Please feel free to get in touch!

I am happy to teach all ages and all standards, either at my own address in Walthamstow or at students' houses. I particularly enjoy using my own experience as a bassoonist to explore both classical and contemporary repertoire in exciting, characterful and accessible ways with others. My lessons are centred around a love and enjoyment of music across a variety of different genres. Lessons can be tailored to suit the student's personal interests or goals, in order to motivate, inspire and challenge.

I have experience tutoring both individuals and small groups and have an extremely strong academic background. I am currently employed as the bassoon teacher at Hampton Independent School for Boys, Lady Eleanor Holles School for Girls and Newland House Prep School. Since moving to London in September 2015, I have been heavily involved in outreach work both with the Open Academy during my time at the Royal Academy of Music, and with the charity Music for Open Ears. As an individual and as part of an ensemble, I have facilitated creative music-making in workshops for all ages. My wind quintet, Moriarty Winds, regularly perform educational sessions in schools in and around London, and have worked as a Wigmore Hall Chamber Tots Ensemble.

As a freelance bassoonist, I regularly perform with leading UK orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and many others.

I am familiar with the ABRSM, GSCE and A Level music syllabuses, and have a history of pupils receiving consistently high exam results. I can also provide tutoring for Oxbridge or other university entrance interviews.

Whilst at the Royal Academy of Music, I studied under Robin O'Neill, John Orford, Amy Harman and Fraser Gordon. I am also currently enrolled in an LRAM teaching diploma course.
