In addition to my career as a performer, I also have a passion for teaching and have taught students of all levels for several years. Currently, I teach undergraduate students at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where I’m also undertaking doctoral studies in Trad cello pedagogy.

I’m able to teach in a variety of genres, from Classical music to Scottish and Irish music and American old-time, whatever interests the student. I enjoy helping students to find their unique voice, and am happy to tailor repertoire to fit the individual.
