I am a qualified primary school teacher specialising in teaching music. I studied Music at Oxford University and gained my PGCE from Exeter University. I was awarded the Ted Wragg Award for Outstanding Teacher Trainee. I continue my own development in music education by attending courses in Colourstrings, Kodaly, Dalcroze and Orff.
Starting to play the cello from age seven, I gained Grade 8 with distinction at fifteen. I played an active role in school music – performing in Devon, London and touring to Boston, US. I was a member of the Devon County Youth Orchestra and Oxford University Orchestras. Later, I gained Grade 8 on the piano and enjoy accompanying friends and family. My love of chamber music began at university, where I formed a string quartet. I currently play with the Hugo String Quartet in North London.
I teach pupils in school settings and privately, individually and in small groups. I enjoy teaching young beginners as well as adults. I prepare pupils for Music Medals and ABRSM exams where appropriate.
I hold a current DBS certificate and attend annual safeguarding training.
