My ethos. It is no secret that I am passionate about the trombone and I particularly love to share that with developing players at every level. Teaching has always been at the heart of my life as a professional musician as my work as an active performer brings plenty to my lessons and vice versa.
With nearly 10 years of teaching experience, I have helped my pupils to achieve grades with ABRSM, Trinity and MTB examination boards, I have supported various music scholarship auditions, applications to junior conservatoires, music course applications and have helped those wanting to study music in higher education, all with a full success rate.
I pride myself in being supportive and enthusiastic in every lesson. I am organised and always make sure that every one of my pupils has the information they need to develop in to a well-rounded musician. I enjoy getting to know each of my pupils and learning how to encourage them to pursue and develop their own ideas and interests too.
Trombone and low brass are my speciality and know the instruments and materials very well. I am always looking to develop the resources available to us and have a variety of tools for you use, leaving you well supported between lessons too.
I am available to teach private lessons ONLINE and in both London (Islington) and Surrey (Guildford). The pandemic has brought a welcome new leg to my teaching; the capacity for good quality online learning. Where rules allow, I am now teaching a blend of face-to-face and online lessons. Pupils will always get the most out of regular lessons, but I am open to offering lessons for shorter term or one-off situations too. Let’s discuss what suits you best.
