I am a passionate teacher of Music with a wealth of experience in both private instrumental and group classes as well as secondary and primary school settings; both offering opportunity to work with a wide range of abilities, educational needs and age ranges. I base my teaching on the Colourstrings/ Kodaly approach which I find is gentle and adaptable to all types of learners bringing out the best of their abilities and encouraging self-confidence. I incorporate musicianship and theory of Music into flute and/ or piano lessons that are fun, supportive and encouraging, working at the students own pace and development. I also run group Colourstrings Music lessons for Reception to Year 2 students which is a great start to laying the foundations of musical learning.

If desired then I am happy to support and successfully prepare students for both ABRSM grade examinations and can offer extra tuition for both GCSE and GCE (A Level) Music examinations for any board.

Currently my charges are £20 per half hour, teaching from home. I offer a half price taster session which you can arrange by contacting me on:

I have a current DBS certificate.

I look forward to hearing from you and starting your Musical journey!
