Bio

I am a friendly and experienced flutist based in north London.  With a focus on jazz, funk and blues, on concert, alto and bass flute.  I hold a performance ATCL (distinction) and LTCL diploma in jazz flute from Trinity College.  I am currently studying an extended Masters’ degree in jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.  I perform as part of the 3 a.m. jazz trio and independently.  Recent venues include: the Spice of Life, Off the Cuff, the Queensbury, the Queen’s Head Islington, Mascara Bar.  Recent festivals include the Leytonstone Music Festival and the Urban Food Festival in Shoreditch.

I teach flute to children (from age 8) and adults.  I make lessons fun and interesting – introducing my students to the different types of flute-playing from round the world. I tailor my lessons creatively to the particular student, their background and interests, while developing their musicianship to a high level.

I am leading the Girl Plays Jazz Project – a new project in North London to provide jazz education to girls aged between 9 and 13 years old – to introduce them to jazz and develop their skills as improvising musicians.  Please see http://www.girlplaysjazz.org.uk for more details.
