I am a trumpet player so I teach the instruments of the brass family: trumpet, cornet, tenor horn, french horn, baritone, euphonium, trombone and tuba. I am happy to help students prepare for jazz or classical grades if they wish but it is perfectly fine if they'd rather not.

I think it is important that the instrument is a way into learning all kinds of (interesting) things about music so I try to cover a really broad range of different ideas in lessons. I don't just stick to 'classical' music, I think it's great to explore lots of different things from the very beginning. Lessons can incorporate improvisation, playing by ear and music theory as well as playing technique. Lessons are tailored to the individual student's needs and interests.

I normally travel to students' homes or places of work around my local area: Leytonstone, Stratford, Leyton, Bow, Mile End Hackey, City of London, Stepney, Whitechapel Bethnal Green, Docklands, West Ham, Walthamstow, Wanstead, Redbridge, Ilford, Barking, Plaistow. I also teach in North and North West London and am happy to work with students in Brondesbury, Queens Park, Willesden, Ladbroke Grove, Hampstead, Camden, Tufnell Park, Kentish Town, Finsbury Park and the surrounding areas.

I am also employed as a part time brass tutor by the "Every Child a Musician" project in the London Borough of Newham.

I also work as a conductor and currently direct Bart's and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry student orchestra and choir, the University of the Arts London Orchestra and the Imperial College School of Medicine Choir. I also work as an arranger and frequently organise concerts.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


Exceptional circumstances/illness aside, cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance or payment for the lesson will still be due in full.
