Personal Message

Two of my greatest passions are music and teaching and to be able to combine the two is something that I have really enjoyed doing for nearly 10 years. Whilst teaching and working alongside young people I have been able to see them develop and thrive, not only in musical ability, but also in confidence in and out of education. The way that music can be used to express emotion and character is endless and I enjoy being able to assist in allowing young people to reach their full potential and find gifts in music that they never once thought they had.

Experience

I started teaching flute and piano when I was 18 at a Private Music School and continued working privately whilst studying for a Music Degree. After graduating I worked for Kent Music School and provided Wider Opportunity Lessons in Flute, Recorder, Keyboard and Singing around Kent. Alongside this I worked as part of a team building Youth Music Groups in the community. I then moved to London and worked for 'Every Child a Musician' and became a lead tutor which involved writing syllabuses and training and mentoring other woodwind teachers.

I have enjoyed being part of orchestras, bands, and woodwind ensembles in Bedfordshire, at university in Canterbury, and in Canterbury Orchestra. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences, both teaching and performing.
