I'm a composer and currently a PhD researcher in music (composition) at University of Oxford (at St Hilda's College), living in London and teaching a wide variety of instruments, music technology, and composition skills. I tutor at Chirst Church and St Hilda's colleges at Oxford University for their music undergraduate degree, and was an admissions tutor for 2017.

I teach up to Grade 5 piano and Grade 8 theory, as well as popular music styles on electric guitar and bass, and piano. I also offer tutorials for prospective Oxbridge students in preparation for admissions interviews.

I've worked on more specialist and advance topics such as music engraving (using Sibelius software) and music technology (software such as MAX msp and Ableton), which are closer to my own PhD research at Oxford and my own composition, and so I enjoy teaching this a lot.

I have been teaching children and adults since 2012 when I began with the Royal College of Music's Teaching Service. I have several years of experience working with young children seeing them achieve well in ABRSM exams for piano and music theory.

I can provide references from parents for my teaching experience with children, as well as from adults too. As a teacher I adapt to the student's needs whilst making sure they excel on the given course, instrument, or syllabus. This seems particularly relevant when working with children, who often need encouragement and inspiration when either shy, bored, stressed, or uninterested. With parent's support I do well to keep students on track to progress steadily on their instrument or topic.

I find it very rewarding to see students of all age develop their musicianship over time and gain achievements such as distinction in exams or high profile performances.

I teach principally in West and South West London.
