Since leaving music college, I have enjoyed a varied career of both performing musician and violin teacher. I have three years' experience working at Dudley Performing Arts as a visiting violin teacher to schools, to take both whole classes of children and small groups.

I was assistant conductor of the Sandwell Music and Arts Service Intermediate String Orchestra for four years, alongside Helen Lancaster and was also violin teacher and string ensemble director at Tile Hill Wood school and language college in Coventry.

I have also co-led workshops for children at Cambridge Folk Festival and adult workshops at Purbeck Folk Festival, Wickham Folk Festival and Sidmouth Folk Week.

I now teach private one-to-one lessons from my home in Worcestershire, I am happy to teach folk and classical style violin from beginner to grade eight and beyond, or just for fun!
