About Me

I was born in London and learnt piano and cello as a boy. I studied biochemistry at UCL and have always enjoyed the heady combination of maths, science and music. My career has been a bit of both, but is now firmly on the music side.

I believe that lessons should be fun, but making good progress is part of the fun, so I’ll expect you to practise! read more
