Tell me about some of your current students.
My students are members of the Junior Royal College of Music, Junior Royal Academy of Music and the National Youth Orchestra. It is so rewarding to be able to nurture talent and enthusiasm for learning.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Playing an instrument is fun and rewarding, and can really boost your mood and confidence. It is a great way to meet people; I've made some of my closest lifelong friends through playing in ensembles and orchestras. Regular practice is important to progress, and I work with my students to develop a realistic and manageable practice schedule, making sure it is enjoyable too and never a chore. Playing music supports your learning in other areas and develops concentration skills too.
