About Us

I have lived in Southampton for over 25 years and have been teaching privately for over 30 years.

 I have a 100% (99.98) pass rate for ABRSM and Trinity Exams and my last five Grade 8 entries all got distinctions. I have recently taught myself Jazz and my last threeTrinity Jazz flute entries also got distinctions ( two of which were Grade 8).

I have had pupils that have been inspired by myself and have become peripatetic teachers for the local music service and I have had one pupil who went to the Birmingham Conservatoire. I also have worked for  Hampshire Music Service and Southampton Music Service and still continue to work  Privately and at Hiltingbury, Durley, and Itchen Abbas Primary Schools,

                   Wildern Secondary School.

Besides teaching I play , and have played, in many groups in the area including my flute group called “Fluticity”, the Southampton Concert Orchestra , Thornden Community Wind Band and the pit orchestra for Eastleigh Operatic Society and Thornden Community Choir

I have also had the experience of playing many concertos with lots of local and national orchestras. Some local ones being Northwood String Orchestra ,in which twice, I played the Vivaldi Double Flute Concerto with ex-pupils Rebecca Weatherall (200O) and Adam Knott  (2010).  The Mozart Concerto in G with Marchwood Orchestra and the Chaminade Concertino with the Southampton Concert Orchestra. I also played Flight of the Bumble Bee from memory, as I have so far with all my solo performances, with the City of Southampton Orchestra (2000).

 Due to bringing up a beautiful family I have continued teaching and putting all my energy into inspiring new musicians but for the moment solo work has been put on hold.

Nationally I have performed the Mozart Flute Concertos in G and D ,Telemann Double Concerto for Recorder and Flute   and the Bach Suite in B minor on my Wooden Flute

As well as eating, breathing and playing music I like to do a lot of crafting.

I love to paint cheap ukuleles and also have knitted one, made one out of Lego and even one out of lollipop sticks ( see above). I also make models out of old instruments. I have made an owl, and two hedgehogs out of old single and double reeds, a phoenix out of reed covers and have a model made out of old instruments on display in the d.@rt centre.
