I graduated in 2015 from the Royal College of Music with a first class bachelors degree. I have performed extensively all over, most recently on tv for the BBC radio 2 folk awards, and later this year I have been invited to the Battle Proms as their favourite soloist in 20 years!
I started officially teaching at just 17, coaching a local teachers more advanced students. From here I became Professor Berent Korfker's private assistant at 18, teaching his younger students from the Purcell school and alike. Being able to work with such talented students was extremely inspiring and excited me to start my own class with complete beginners on both violin and piano. I now have a hugely mixed class of both ability and age (4 to over 50!) with a 100% pass rate in their exams.
My approach to teaching has always depended on the students age, ability and character. For younger students I incorporate games into the lesson, with them often wondering how they finished so quickly! I like to create a fun environment for musical development where questions are encouraged, and all students are taught how to teach themselves and apply techniques learnt in the lesson to the practice room.
