I provide tuition to pupils of all ages and abilities (beginner to advanced) in the Whitchurch, Shropshire, Chester, Cheshire and Wrexham areas.  Lessons are taught in my purpose built music studio with vaulted ceiling and grand piano, at my home two miles outside Whitchurch, Shropshire.


A little bit about me....I grew up in the north east of England and am half Persian. I studied for my music degree at Lancaster University and hold several diplomas both in teaching and performing. I am completely passionate about all music and music teaching, and aim to inspire my students by sharing this love of music with them all.  I am continually undergoing professional development (via courses and workshops) in order to keep abreast of new teaching methods, and to keep on top of my own technique as a musician.  


Many of my pupils have gone on to become successful musicians and teachers themselves: I have had students taking up places at the Royal Northern College of Music, others studying music at university (specialising in composition and flute).  I also regularly prepare pupils for school entrance exam auditions, with many gaining music scholarships at the top schools in Cheshire/Shropshire.
