Instrumental Tuition - oboe, recorder
I teach oboe and recorder, both through London music services and privately. This entails a mixture of individual and group teaching within schools, homes and music centres. I enjoy working with students of all ages and I enter pupils for ABRSM graded examinations. I am a Suzuki Recorder teacher registered with the British Suzuki Institute and I very much enjoy enabling young children to develop a passion for music.
Please contact me if you would like further information.

Community Music Workshops
I have a great deal of experience in taking music into community environments such as mainstream schools, special needs schools, hospitals and children's holiday camps or music clubs. Whatever the context I believe it is possible to engage with listening to music, making music, communicating through music and most of all having fun and building confidence through music. I have worked with Live Music Now!, BREMF education projects, LSO Discovery Scheme, City of London Festival, Wigmore Hall Chamber Tots scheme, and OAE education projects.
Please do contact me if you would like to know more.
