Singing | Keyboard | Theory | Songwriting
I can’t remember a time when I haven’t been obsessed with music! I started singing lessons at the age of 14 and began teaching 7 years ago.
I completed my Advanced Certificate in Music Performance, majoring in vocals, and went on to complete a Music Supervision (sync licensing) course through Berklee College Of Music. I was then lucky enough to travel to over 30 countries singing professionally on cruise lines.
I started song writing at an early age and have since gained extensive recording experience, I’ve written and recorded a full length album and have had the opportunity to have my songs played on both national and international radio.
I love to see students get inspired and see the results of taking small steps in improving their technique. The change in my students voices and confidence is phenomenal to witness!
Drums | Music Business
Drumming has been my passion since I started playing at the age of 9. I have played in various bands and after school went on to complete my Advanced Certificate in Music Performance, majoring in drums.
As a band leader, I have completed cruise line contracts in Europe, USA, the Caribbean and Australasia and have extensive experience in both live performance & recording.
As an Artist Liaison in music management I’ve worked alongside both artists and clients, assisting with everything from performance contracts to being on location for live shows and festivals for artists including Incubus and Bastille.
I’ve taught a multitude of students from kids to adults, ranging from absolute beginners to advanced players. My passion is to see students develop their unique set of skills, growing in musicality and technique but ultimately having fun along the way.
Guitar | Bass | Theory
From an early age, I was hooked by the deep tones of the musical range. Being classically trained on viola, then falling in love with the bass, I knew music was the career I wanted to pursue.
I graduated from the Brit School with an Advanced Diploma in Music, where I was introduced to a new world of musical genres and possibilities. As a performing musician, I continue to use my training as a session player, band member, composer and arranger, and have cultivated working relationships with many artists and industry professionals.
I have ample experience in playing and recording bass and guitar, and have a keen interest in jazz and music theory. Having taught students with a wide range of experience, I’ve enjoyed seeing them improve their musical ability by working on technique and understanding of music theory, as well as helping them realise the joy of playing music together.
