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.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: ALL LESSONS IN PERSON WILL BE CANCELLED FROM MONDAY 23rd. I have some symptoms: aches and sore throat (no temperature or cough as yet). I have already started teaching via Skype and so this is the option now to the end of term on April 4th.
I will contact pupils directly to ensure you are aware of the situation and to arrange alternatives.
ABRSM exams: cancelled until further notice.
LCM singing exams cancelled. Measures will be put in place to offer video recordings of performances digitally. I will notify you when I hear more.
Welcome to my site! I hope you will find it helpful and informative. Within the site, you will find audio clips and details of exam results to provide examples of my student's work.
