Teacher Info

I graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2013 and have been performing, teaching and composing ever since. I have performed globally across multiple continents, as well as performing at a high level nationally, including West End performances, and performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

I have been teaching piano for nearly 10 years, and have a wide range of experience teaching different styles to different ages, including both private lessons and group lessons. I used to work as a Brand Representative for Rock Steady Music school as well, where would facilitate music assemblies and workshops to groups of children, sometimes several hundred at a time.

I have composed several different original scores for companies such as the BBC, and have also composed the original score for a feature film entitled ‘Assassin’ featuring Danny Dyer.

I hold a fully valid DBS certificate and have a lovely piano at my house in Oxford from where I teach.
