After receiving the Peter Evans prize for the highest performance mark in the final year of her degree, she is knowledgeable about a huge range of playing styles and techniques and is a friendly, enthusiastic and adaptable teacher who can provide for everyone.
I feel it’s important for budding musicians to know about a range of subjects from how their equipment works all the way to individual right-hand technique. It’s important to provide individual needs for different players as everyone will have different inspirations and motivators. Keeping people interested, enthusiastic and above all, excited about music is my aim.
My passion for music is infectious and I want to provide people with the same nurturing and opportunistic environment, advice and experience I have had the pleasure of receiving.
