PhD – Music. City University, London; PGCE (Secondary Music), LRSM (Tuba Performance).
I have taught music from nursery to university level, both in the classroom and as an instrumental teacher. I also have 20 years experience as a professional musician and I have toured the world playing many styles of music on numerous different instruments. My teaching philosophy is to teach all children to play musical instruments and to read and write music. I teach by example and this means having a musical instrument in my hands most of the time. In my spare time, when not practising musical instruments, I enjoy distance running. The wealth of musical talent at ISM is certainly something that keeps me excited about coming into work every day.
