I hold a BMus degree from the Royal Academy of Music as well as it's LRAM teaching diploma. My postgraduate studies were at the Royal College of Music where I obtained a PGDip in advanced performance.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have a wide variety of teaching and performing experience. As a teacher I have worked with students ranging from complete beginners, through to music college applicants and experienced adults. Regardless of a student's background or stage of development I aim to give lessons that are both challenging and enjoyable.
