Who Am I?

Tayside Piano Teacher

I am a local piano teacher, born, raised, and educated in Perth. I began teaching in 2012 at a local theatre arts school, where I also had the opportunity to musically direct Sunshine on Leith, and participate in other musicals and creative activities. In 2014, I left to focus on my studies, and to develop my own private teaching practice. During this time, I also worked with Horsecross Glee choirs and started my career as an organist at Bankfoot Church Centre.


Upon graduating from Perth College UHI with a First Class Honours in Popular Music,  I pursued my dream of opening a quality, performing piano studio, and opened Maestro Music Studio on January 2017.

In September, 2019, I decided to pursue an MSc in Psychology in order to further my understanding of how we learn, and the effect of music on the brain.
