I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2009 with a BMus 2:1.
Focusing my studies on Performance I was fortunate enough to be lectured by some internationally accomplished violinists and this drove my passion for playing.
I became a violin teacher to local primary and secondary pupils during my studies but moved to classroom teaching. Since becoming a Head of Music 5 years ago, I have kept playing and run my own ensembles. Group playing is something I am very keen to encourage.
I have experience teaching to ABRSM examination specifications also.
