What do you enjoy most about teaching?

  • I enjoy that everyday is different.
  • The job is so varied so it keeps you on your toes.
  • I also enjoy that you can see the difference in students from when you start teaching them to when they leave.

What is your top tip for new trainees?

  • Be prepared! Plan correctly and have everything ready - this will mean that you will be much more confident when teaching your lesson.

Why should trainees choose your subject?

  • Music has the ability to inspire even the most challenging students. In the words of Hans Christian Anderson - “where words fail, music speaks”
