A child prodigy, I achieved 4 grade 8s with distinction by the age of 12 and my first professional diploma at the age of 14, and degrees from Oxford University.

I am a former lecturer at universities in Oxford and Hertfordshire.  

In addition, I provide coaching to teachers, professionals and potential professional musicians as well as singers.
