About me

The piano has played a central role in my life since the age of seven. I worked through the ABRSM grades, and continued classical training at The Royal Irish Academy of Music, Dublin. It was here that I advanced my pianistic technique, broadened my musicianship and interpretative skills, and developed a real passion for teaching.

Shortly after completing my studies, I enrolled on the EPTA Piano Teachers’ Course to gain expertise from world-leading pianists and pedagogues. On attaining the Cert PTC with Merit, I made a commitment to become a first-rate, inspirational piano teacher.

I am a full professional member of the European Piano Teachers’ Association UK, and enjoy participating in regular CPD teacher training courses. I partake in masterclasses and have individual Taubman Approach tuition with a member of the Associate Faculty of The Golandsky Institute.

Having regular access to this vast body of knowledge enriches my own playing, allowing exceptional expression with physical ease and heightened awareness. My continuing piano studies enable me to guide each of my pupils toward a healthy, coordinate technique that allows the freedom in playing necessary to realise one’s highest potential.

I hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate, and have worked in two schools.
