Hi! I’m a concert pianist and piano teacher based in Sheffield. I currently work both as a private tutor and also at the prestigious Sheffield Music Academy.

I hold a First-Class degree from the University of Cambridge where I obtained an MA in Spanish and an MPhil in European Literature, before completing an MMus in Piano at Trinity College of Music in London.

I have performed internationally as well as live on BBC Radio 3 and 4, and across the UK’s major venues, including Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, Barbican’s Milton Court Concert Hall, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James’s Piccadilly and The National Gallery. Press quotes include: ‘magical’ (BBC Radio 3’s In Tune), ‘so beautiful’ (BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour), and ‘satisfyingly understated’ (Music & Vision).

I have 15 years’ experience teaching all ages and levels up to diploma level, with a 100% exam pass rate and most of my students achieving a merit or distinction. Many of my students have also won competitions and music scholarships at school.

As a performer with a special passion for chamber music and vocal accompaniment, I have collaborated with many illustrious names, including Dominic Miller, Luis Gomes, Ian Anderson, Vanessa Lucas-Smith, Omar Puente, Coro Cervantes, Clara Rodríguez and Nina Corti, and have also shared a platform with Morgan Szymanski, Fábio Zanon and Marcelo Bratke.

I am also a specialist practitioner of Ibe/rican repertoire and a committed advocate for cultural diversity in classical music. I have premiered many works by Latin American composers in the UK, including Villa-Lobos and Guastavino, and have also commissioned new works by pre-eminent Latin American composers such as Ricardo Lorenz and Enrique González-Medina.

My recent projects include the recording of my debut album ‘TangOpera’ (due for release later in 2024), which explores the lyric routes of the tango; and a programme with Spanish soprano, Lorena Paz Nieto, bringing to light the secret works of Luso-Hispanic women composers, titled ‘Mujeres: ¡Presentes!’​

Teaching Info

I tailor the syllabus to each individual student and their personal goals, but aim to offer a balance of practical, aural and theory. My main focus in teaching playing is on expression, supported by strong technique and sound understanding of the historical and cultural context of the music. I do a lot of exam preparation but I’m also happy to teach students looking to learn just for fun.
