I love teaching and performing music and I am passionate about enabling students to enjoy their music making, whatever their level.  

I attended Trinity College of Music, London where I studied cello and piano.  I teach from my music studio and perform regularly in string trios/quartets and orchestras such as the Auckland Sinfonietta and the Aorangi Symphony Orchestra. I am a member of the folk rock group Hoop. I am highly qualified with both music qualifications and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.  I am an experienced classroom school teacher, itinerant instrument teacher and private tutor.
