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.

Latest Covid advice: Students from Wales are now allowed to return to face to face lessons with me, however students who live in England need to carry on remotely until the lockdown is over.


NEWS JUST IN! Face to face exam results are in already! That's the fastest set of results I've ever had from the ABRSM! A Huge Congrats to all 6 musicians who did fantasically well (5 of you had never taken an ABRSM exam before, so what an amazing achievement for your first grade with the Board!!). See the exam results page for details.


A massive WELL DONE to all students who have taken their videoed exams and received results! You did a great job performing in this new style of exam. Results are posted on the exam results page!
