I have a fully enhanced up to date DBS certificate and recent safeguarding and e-safety training through Bristol Plays Music, the music education hub for Bristol.

Since 2012 I have taught piano both in schools and privately. I lead whole class singing and ukulele sessions in schools and play guitar and synth in a touring band.

One of my earliest memories is of the piano and I have played from a young age. I have Grade 8 Piano, an undergraduate degree in Music with First Class Honours and a Masters in Music with Distinction, both from Newcastle University. I have previously worked as a session pianist for bands and a touring theatre company. 

I love playing as part of a band or ensemble and composing my own music.
