More About Me
I have a deep passion for flute playing and flute teaching. It has been at the centre of my day to day work for my entire adult life. I teach with enthusiasm, energy and commitment, alongside my busy freelance playing career as a soloist and in orchestra. (Principal Flute of The Heritage Orchestra since 2009)
As well as giving masterclasses in the UK & Europe, in 2013 I was appointed as Professor of Flute for the Annual Yuri Bashmet International Music Academy in Russia, giving a week of daily masterclasses to children aged 11-17.
I have an excellent knowledge and practical experience on the use and teaching of Extended Techniques for the flute. I use this expertise both to facilitate the study and performance of modern music, and also to enhance traditional flute playing technique.
I have developed a method of tone production teaching that aims to remove any mystery from the process of attaining a full, rich, vibrant and resonant flute tone across the whole range of the instrument.
