Having trained at Chetham's School of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music, and the Royal Academy of Music, I now earn my living as a freelance violinist around the UK. I regularly work with orchestras including the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Concert Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and Glyndebourne Touring Opera. I also have previous experience in performing chamber music at an international level as second violinist with the Heath Quartet (from 2007-2009) and the Carducci Quartet (second violin maternity cover 2012).

As a teacher I was employed by the Lake District Summer Music International Summer School and Young String Venture between 2009-2013 to coach the YSV Advanced Chamber Ensembles (ages 8-18), and to assist with the ensemble coaching on the ISS (ages 17+). I also spent one year with the Heath Quartet coaching the first-year undergraduate string chamber musical gramme at the Roayl Northern College of Music from 2008-09. I have given violin lessons privately from time to time, and although I have taught younger children, my main passion is for inspiring older students in their teens (and sometimes adults too!) to broaden their interest in classical music through developing their individual technique and love of the instrument. I am very much in favour of students taking part in local orchestras and other ensembles where this is possible as I believe that developing a sense of team work and a social life through music can only enhance their experience. I am willing to prepare my students for grade exams or help in preparation for school music exams or competitions, if this is something they have an interest in. I do encourage students to find individual goals to work towards, whether that is an exam or a recital, or simply a recognition of a more advanced ability and enjoyment in their playing.
