Bio
I graduated in 2011 from Trinity College of Music in London with a BMus (Hons) in performance studies where I studied the violin under Richard Ireland.
I began playing the violin at the age of four and studied with John Fisher from the age of thirteen, obtaining a distinction at grade eight. I also learnt the piano up to grade seven, having achieved grade five within six months of starting lessons. Early orchestral experiences involved leading the North Suffolk Youth Orchestra, and being a member of the Suffolk Youth Orchestra with which I toured extensively throughout Europe as well as performing for the Queen. I was also invited to join Waveney Sinfonia at the age of twelve, which I performed regularly with until leaving for university.

During my time at Trinity College of Music, I was in the first violins of the Trinity Symphony Orchestra and Trinity Sinfonia, was a member of the Trinity String Ensemble, Early Music group and formed a guitar and violin duo. I recorded for BBC Radio 3 and performed under conductors such as Edward Gardner, Michael Stern and Gregory Rose. I was also involved in external ensembles such as the Orion Orchestra and Canterbury Symphony Orchestra.

In addition to an extensive classical repertoire,
I also have experience in other styles and genres
of music, which has involved improvisation and composition of my own music.

I currently work in the music department for Norwich School in addition to teaching private violin lessons. I perform with many bands throughout Norwich, have played in a number of music festivals, made several local radio appearances and am a member of the Academy Of St Thomas orchestra.

We just wanted to express our appreciation for your performance.
The repertoire you played through the reception was fantastic and really
created the kind of atmosphere
we were hoping for.”

“When you started taking requests from our guests, it raised the entertainment bar another notch. I think it’s a testament to your experience, skill and creativity that you could produce a guitar and violin arrangement of ‘La Bamba’ on the spot!”

“Thank you both for all you did for
our wedding. We have had so many complimentary remarks about how fabulous you were – people were
blown away!”

Teaching
I teach all ages and abilities, whether you want
to learn for fun, or take graded examinations.
I have been involved in several music workshops and have also co-led an early years mother and child music group. I have experience with Alexander Technique.

I like to take an aural approach to learning music
and so lessons involve listening and learning by
ear as well as improvising and singing. I also feel
it is important to combine this approach with music theory and sight singing so students have a well rounded understanding of music.

I have been CRB checked and am a member
of the Musician’s Union.
