Shona believes that having a passion for your subject and being able to share your passion effectively with others is fundamental to teaching. As a music teacher, Shona aims to encourage students to become committed and ambitious performers ensuring they have an outlet in which to express themselves and gain confidence.
Having grown up in Scotland and lived in Nepal, Shona loves spending time in the mountains, whether trekking, hiking or trail running. She also loves going to see live music, particularly jazz and classical concerts.
