Specialising as a traditional fiddle tutor, I have experience teaching on the BMus Folk & Traditional Music Degree at Newcastle University. I teach a variety of styles of traditional music, specific techniques relating to traditional fiddling, theory and composition/arrangement skills.  I have experience entering students for ABRSM Grades 1-8 and at all levels of the RSAMD Scottish Traditional Music Grades. For over 10 years I provided musical opportunities for the Scottish Borders Council, funded by Youth Music Initiative (Creative Scotland) and I am honoured to have been asked to tutor for the following organisations: 

Folkestra, FolkWorks Youth Summer School, Tinto Summer School, The Border Gaitherin, Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin', The Sage Gateshead Fiddles on Fire and the Goderich Folk Festival, Canada.
