I attended Chetham's School of Music from 1997 until 2004, where I was taught by Nigel Pitceathly and Murray McLachlan. I enjoyed success performing, reachig the National Final of the BBC Young Musician competition in 2002 at the age of 16, and the Quarter-Final in 2004, and performing in concert venues across the country. I was also involved in a composition masterclass with Scottish composer James MacMillan at the Royal Northern College of Music.

I first started teaching part-time in 2005 and became full-time in July 2008. I now teach around 40 pupils per week, both children and adults of all abilities, from beginners to Grade 8 and diploma students. I am also happy to teach any students who wish to take ABRSM Theory exams, and am currently teaching Grades 1 to 5 and Grade 6.

I am flexible to the needs of all pupils - I am happy, for example, to accommodate adults in full-time employment later on during weekday evenings, or an Saturdays.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


An introductory lesson is free of charge. Payment is appreciated thereafter in advance in 5-weekly installments of £75 for 5 half hour lessons, £110 for 45 minute lessons, or £140 for 5 hour lessons. Pupils are invoiced a week in advance of payment.

Cancellations should be made 48 hours in advance of the lesson, otherwise pupils are charged the standard fee for the missed lesson. If a requested rearrangement of a lesson with under 48 hours' notice is not possible, the lesson will also still be charged for. Otherwise, I am happy to try to occasionally rearrange lessons depending on the teaching schedule.
