    I am a dynamic educator who believes in a broad approach to teaching! As well as learning how to play our new instrument we'll enjoy writing our own tunes, listening to a range of music, using flash cards, playing duets and belting out a few songs.

    I love meeting and building a rapport with new students. Each person is so different in their experiences and outlook, so I find it incredibly enriching to be able to meet each student at their level and work together to move forward.

    Oboe Teacher (South East London) Picture “So your pieces are coming on really well.... how are your scales?” This fear inducing question, has come up too many times in my life, and I am so thankful to say that now I can firmly acquit it of its fear. Scales have always been a tricky one for me, purely for the boredom associated with...
