Teacher Info

Music has been a part of me since I was 3 years old. I started by playing the piano and the drums, two instruments I’ve always been fascinated with and enchanted by.

I went on to study these at a higher level at the Royal College of Music, Kings College London & University of North Carolina and went on to perform at some great places like Ronnie Scotts, Royal Albert Hall, Houses of Parliament and more.

I find great joy in teaching music, being able to give the feeling I get from improving at and give the gift of playing music to all age groups so they can have the same smile on their faces and sense of achievement that they can share with friends and family that I was lucky enough to experience.

Music Qualifications & Achievements:

As I worked through the music exam structure, I got to understand how each level became a benchmark or orientation of how I was improving. To jump from the very beginning to expert level can be intimidating for a lot of people. Grades and achievements give you different levels to pass through until you feel a real command and freedom with an instrument.

For achievements:

  • Producing for Sony RCA Records and Universal
  • Performing at Ronnie Scotts
  • Composing the Music for BBC television and TV adverts for Cadbury, Audi R8, Muller and more

As for qualifications:

  • I hold a masters degree in Composing from the Royal College of Music
  • BMus degree from Kings College London
  • ATCL Diploma with Distinction in Percussion
  • ABRSM Grade 8 Distinction in Piano
  • ABRSM Grade 8 Distinction in Percussion
