I graduated in 2010 from both the Royal Northern College of Music and Manchester Metropolitan University having completed my joint BMus and QTS studies. From the age of 9 I learned the trombone and have been an active musician playing in brass bands, orchestras, big bands and show bands.
I am passionate about music and believe every child has musical potential; it is my job as a teacher to nurture their potential by guiding them and allowing them to explore their ideas. I feel the best way for children to engage with music is to have fun and to learn through practical music skills. I encourage children to sing and play instruments as often as possible in music lessons and love how much they smile when they perform for one another.
In my spare time I regularly play concerts with both The Emirates Community Orchestra and The National Symphony Orchestra with whom I have been lucky enough to play with artists such as Il Divo and Andrea Bocelli, amongst taking part in other musical events such as “Disney’s Frozen live on stage”.
Music is my life; I love to watch live music including Jazz music, Classical music and Stage Musicals and cannot wait for the Dubai Opera to open in August!
