I am a musician who was born and grew up in LB Newham with an MA (distinction, 2018) in Music Composition and Ba Hons (1st class, 2013) in Popular Music & Recording from University of Salford. Prior to my university studies I gained a Grade 8 with distinction (Rock School) for electric guitar at the first grade exam I attempted. 
I believe that every child should be offered the chance to learn an instrument, sing or participate in music. This is not only to develop skills that will take with them though life, but also to promote wellbeing, encourage collaboration and bring communities together.




I worked as a nanny for approximately 5 years working with children between the ages of 10 months and 8 years old.

I have previously worked for a music 

teaching business and Clip Theatre running music and movement sessions as well as birthday parties.

I am currently an after school ukulele and musicianship teacher to students as young as 4 years old  and upwards.
