Hi there, thank you for considering to Learn With Me.
If you'd like 1-to-1 lessons with me, I teach the oboe, cor anglais, reed-making, music theory and the recorder online.
I offer a free 30-min online trial lesson to help us get to know a little about each other beforehand. 😊
I started teaching the oboe in 2014 and since then have had the pleasure of helping 19 private students and 32 students from 6 different schools become more accomplished oboists and musicians.
My past and present pupils come from 10 different countries and range from 7 to 65 years old.
Apart from teaching privately, I currently teach at Havering Music Centre on Saturdays and Sydney Russell School on Thursdays.
Passionate about teaching, I have been involved in many education and outreach events around the UK, most notably the London Philharmonic Orchestra's FUNharmonics - a day of concerts and activities at the Southbank Centre exposing children to classical music and introducing them to the different instruments in the Orchestra.
Whether you're preparing for an exam, learning the oboe as a hobby, or just want some additional guidance, you can be rest assured that I will tailor the lessons to best suit you and cater to your needs. I build good rapport with my students, I am passionate about teaching and I am fully invested in my students' learning and progress.

For students in London, I also offer the option of face-to-face lessons either at my house or yours, the latter dependent on where you live and at an additional cost to cover my travel expenses.
I am fully DBS checked.
Having over two years of experience teaching students online through various platforms such as Zoom and Skype, and also having received lessons from my teachers online, I can confidently say that online learning is just as effective as in-person tutelage.
Over the course of the pandemic, I have prepared students for ABRSM examinations entirely online and they have gone on to achieve high Merits and Distinctions.
With technology, there is so much flexibility and ease with choosing who you want to have lessons with. Not to mention that it also saves both time and money by not having to travel.
Technology has enabled me and many others to connect with people from all around the world, broadening the horizons of what is possible when it comes to education.
