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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Lessons are continuing remotely for the moment, in line with government guidelines. I will resume face to face teaching as soon as it is safe to do so. I thank you all for your understanding and support.


Music exams (face to face) have been cancelled for this term by both ABRSM and LCM Boards, however students who planned on taking an exam have the option of doing this remotely as a pre-recorded video submission. Sadly Oswestry Youth Music Festival has been cancelled.


NEWS FROM AUTUMN TERM: Congrats to Annie and Megan who have both received DISTINCTION for their singing exams! Megan got an amazing 92% for her grade 4 musical theatre exam and Annie a fantastic 89% for the very demanding Pop Music Vocals exam grade 5.  

And another fantastic result for Tara who achieved DISTINCTION for grade 7 flute! Superb result and very well deserved!
