Music is my passion and I love performing with others! Having recently graduated with a Master of Music degree from the Royal Northern College of Music, I have performed with the Hallé, the BBC NOW and at the BBC Proms.
I believe that everyone has the potential to become a talented musician and performer. It is important to learn good technique from the very start, I combine exercises with various styles of pieces to help you become a rounded musician. I also encourage students to perform together (before COVID anyway!), and offer chamber coaching to both new and existing ensembles.
My method of teaching is based off of the Suzuki and Kodaly methods. In my experience this results in quick progress in creating beautiful sounds and talking through our instrument. I am able to teach in any style and for exams if you choose, but we can speak in more detail about in person as I am flexible to suit individual requirements.
I have played with many orchestras and ensembles including the BBC Philharmonic and Scottish Ensemble. I also play regular concerts with my chamber ensemble, the Nexus Duo. I have a great passion for teaching and I have taught pupils with a large age range and ability over the years. I look forward to meeting you!
