In 2012 I graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire with a Bachelor of Music, First Class Honuous, I then went on to the Royal College of Music where I completed a Masters of Performance, pass with Distinction in 2014.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have six years of teaching experience which has varied from individual to whole class teaching, primary school ages to adults and complete beginners to ABRSM Grade 8 standard. For the last four years I have been a brass tutor for Camden Music Service which has given me lots of experience in all abilities and instruments. I have arranged music and ran brass ensemble clubs (ages ranging from primary school to university level) and also have a great understanding of the ABRSM and Trinity board exams.

Before I taught for Camden I have also been a brass teacher at the following institutions, Enfield Music Service, RCM Junior Department, RCM Sparks outreach, Philharmonia Orchestra Education Department and London Philharmonic Orchestra Education Department.

As a performer I regularly freelance with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet and also played for Adele's U.K tour and set at Glastonbury.

I can travel to Central Bedford, Stagsden, Bromham, Biddenham, Stevington, Milton Ernest, Clapham, Kempston, Turvey, Harrold, Carlton or up to 10 miles from Oakley but if lessons take place at my home then they are cheaper.
