Do you use Skype? Contact me for free!I offer a variety of different options for flute, fiddle and tin whistle ranging from ‘one to one’ tuition, group workshops and, more recently, online lessons through the medium of Skype. For online lessons you will require a broadband connection and good quality webcam.

‘One to one’ and group lessons are available primarily in the south of Scotland, however they may be possible further afield if I am near you on tour.

I have always been passionate about introducing traditional music to as wide an audience as possible through both performance and teaching. My knowledge of traditional Irish and Scottish music and experience in teaching all age ranges, provides my pupils with a valuable insight into the tradition and allows them to achieve their goals in a structured and thorough way.

My work as a professional musician and tutor has given me a great understanding of the instruments that I play and their place within traditional music. My considerable experience as a music teacher has given me a unique aptitude for recognising the needs of each individual student, whether one to one or in a group setting.

I am always very keen to make my music classes enjoyable and at the same time achieve goals. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to pass on the tradition and through my work at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Newcastle University I have mentored some of Scotland and England’s top ‘Up and Coming’ young musicians, many of whom are regulars on the traditional music scene today.
