My teaching site is here. I have recently had the good luck to coach some exceptional young musicians on the AYM programme at the Britten Centre, Snape and have taught at LCCM London, Hackney College and for various LEAs. I’ve written and delivered online courses such as this one here. I worked for 8 years on the undergraduate BA Music Performance course at BIMM, teaching modules from music theory to live performance. I hold a PGCert from the University of Sussex.
