Like many I started very young on recorder, progressing to clarinet at High School. I then auditioned for the Woman's Royal Army Corp band successfully to take up a career playing Alto saxophone touring Great Britain and Germany. The work was varied from tattoo displays, pageants, the royal tournament to concert band performances. Later in life after my military service I ventured out into the world of jazz and swing taking up the Tenor saxophone. I have been a happy member of the Peninsula Big Band since day one when it was established. I am also a long standing member of the Medway Big Band.


I have over 12 years of teaching experience and a military qualification. The instruments I cover are saxophone, clarinet and flute. Adults as well as young students I welcome as it is never too late to learn a musical instrument. My work is based mainly around the Swale area where I live, although I can offer home visits or teach in school. CRB check is all up to date.
