My Experience as a Teacher

My musical education and background continues to have a profound impact on my teaching. Having graduated from the Royal Welsh College Of Music And Drama, the Junior Conservatoire Of Scotland and Tónlistarskólinn í Grafarvogi in Iceland, my students have complete access to the most practical and useful information regarding articulation, technique, musicality and much more.

I truly believe that students must enjoy their instrument and the process in order to gain the most from lessons. It is my job to ensure complete comfort and confidence in my learners to encourage them to approach challenges with utmost enthusiasm.

Though I always tailor material to individuals, my lessons are carefully constructed and thought out using techniques and ideas. Concepts used by the world leading players from around the world with be yours to master.
