I began teaching in 1998, both at home and in an independent prep school. I worked for Gloucestershire music between 2000 and 2010, through whom I gained experience of a wide variety of school and class sizes. Now freelance, I teach in Gloucestershire Primary schools and from my home in Churchdown.
My continuing professional development has included courses offered by Gloucestershire music and the MU in addition to external training such as the CT.ABRSM refresher course, group leadership courses and attending summer schools both as a student and tutor.
Music is a performance art, and I have always played in bands and orchestras outside of the work in education. Most notably over 20 years in the Jazz Duo Ain’t Misbehavin’ .
I currently play Baritone sax and sing with Crescendo Big Band and hold a similar roles in other local bands and Jazz Orchestras
