Background Check
Cannot tutor online
Can tutor in person


I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree and am currently saving to study a Masters degree overseas. I enjoy chamber music, hiking and running, and attending theater productions.

I have experience tutoring First-Year students in the South African College of Music and teaching Oboe to high school pupils. I have also been an assistant lecturer at the Swakopmunder Musikwoche festival in Swakopmund, Namibia, for two years. I am able to explain concepts and ideas clearly. I empathise with students' uncertainty and am able to build up their confidence.
