My Experience as a Teacher

I am a multi-instrumentalist who holds a 1st class degree in popular music and a MA in music therapy. I have years of working with children in a variety of contexts. My approach to music-making and teaching centers around the relationship and joint music-making. Music is learned through interaction and being challenged by a mentor.

Electric and acoustic guitars are my first instruments, yet I can also play and teach the piano and have experience as a trumpet player in orchestras, brass bands, wind bands and big bands.

As well as a vast amount of experience in teaching adults and children I also have experience working directly with children who have learning difficulties, ASD and behavioral problems.

My lessons are always of the highest quality

More About My Lessons

My proudest moment as a music teacher was working with a group of Year 6 students in a special needs school. Together we wrote and performed a song that expressed their excitement and fears about leaving primary school and heading to secondary school. Witnessed a group of young students engaging in the creative process and taking ownership of their own creation was what every music teacher hopes to see during their career.

I can adapt and change my style to fit the student and will always build my lessons around my students ability level and goals as a learner. My lessons are always professional and are carried out in a way that you can enjoy.

I have been a part of many musical ensembles, choirs, orchestras, wind bands, big bands, brass bands, rock groups, and the duo's from a very young age. This is something I can use to help my students build confidence in their ability level.
