Pedagogical Practice

I have dedicated a substantial part of my career to teaching as I adore sharing my passion for the craft and believe passing on such a valuable tradition is hugely important. My students are a great source of both personal pride and fulfilment with my class ranging from complete beginners to musicians of a professional calibre. No matter what level you are at I treat everyone with the greatest respect and endeavour to make our lessons of the absolute highest quality.

I am a huge advocate of teaching not only how, but why something is the way it is in order to develop a deep understanding of the way music functions. The end goal being to enable truly independent thought and impactful decision making.


Whilst quality is at the core of what I offer I ensure my studio is also a welcoming environment where curiosity and expressing oneself is highly encouraged. Discussion of student’s interests, both musically and of the wider world, I consider to be vitally important and allow me to truly understand the people I work with. This I use to tailor my lessons to the individual, broaden knowledge in areas of interest, and encourage truly unique artistry no matter the background or level of a student.


i am also a believer in building as ‘complete’ a musician as possible and make sure to interweave other related musical matters into my teaching alongside the principal study subject. As a result I frequently recommend articles of interest and historically significant recordings of to my students to encourage learning and cultivate new specialist interests.


I have plenty of experience too having taught at a number of highly reputable institutions. I was made an honorary staff member on the faculty of Music at Queen Mary’s 6th Form College Basingstoke where I ran the Chamber Music Department and Performance Coaching sessions, taught violin, and gave academic lectures on the A Level Music Course. I also have taught at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Junior Department whilst acting as assistant to Head of Chamber Music Jean Gubbins and Violin Professor Sam Mason, and was personally invited by Dr Louise Lansdown to teach an advanced online violin class to students at the Chennai Conservatoire through the ARCO Project. In the past I have additionally had significant involvement with the European String Teachers Association, being involved in numerous workshops, courses, and seminars.

Please see below links to specific strands of my teaching work for more details. If you are interested in studying with me then please do get in contact so we can explore our options of working together and arrange an initial consultation lesson.

Aural and Theory Training

I offer both intensive courses and longer term study plans dedicated to more academic and analytical training. These are essential to expand understanding and musicianship. These classes are often taken to work towards Theory and Aural exams, however I am equally happy to work with students simply looking to further their knowledge.
