What kind of experience do you have?
I have a lot of experience working with children both in a musical and non-musical environment. I have also participated in a number of outreach projects. I have been teaching privately and as a peripatetic teacher in schools since 2011. I have been playing the cello for most of my life and now spend much of my free time teaching and freelancing. I began working for Tower Hamlets in September 2016 where I teach whole class strings and woodwind, small groups and individuals.
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 an hour. I also provide 45 minute lessons pro rata. When travelling to you, travel time and expenses will be added to the lesson fee.
Where do you teach?
I am happy to travel to students in Clapton, Hackney, Dalston, Stoke Newington, and Stamford Hill as well as further afar in boroughs such as Islington, Tower Hamlets, Camden, Kensington and Chelsea, Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge and Leyton. Travel time and expenses may have to be taken into consideration and may increase the lesson fee.
When are you available?
Please contact me for my most up to date availability. I will endeavour to do my best to be flexible.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages from beginner to grade 8+ for Cello, Flute and Piccolo.
I teach all ages from beginner to grade 5 for Piano, Violin, Recorder and Music Theory.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I am a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM)
Where and with whom did you train?

Tell me about some of your current students.
I currently have students ranging from 3 years old to 54. I believe it is very important to be as inclusive as possible. One of my current students is deaf; we overcome this using a number of tailored teaching techniques, focusing a lot on movement and internalising rhythms and melodies. I take a pupil orientated approach to all of my lessons and adjust my teaching in order for them to have the best learning experience for them. Everyone is different and I ensure that my teaching reflects this.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am very passionate about teaching and am flexible towards my students' needs, whether their ambition is to become a professional musician or they are just making music for fun. The most important thing is to be happy and comfortable whilst making music.
