core values

The promotion of an equitable and inclusive society is core to my teaching and creative practice.

Through my work I particularly aim to empower people from marginalised communities to express themselves creatively through music. I seek to support people who have had disempowering experiences in music education in the past, and those for whom music-making has always seemed out of reach.

As such, reduced-cost learning opportunities are available to marginalised people in need – particularly those from the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities.

Safety and trust are integral to a fruitful learning environment.

As such, I am dedicated to holding a safer and welcoming learning environment for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, race, ethnicity, religion, or cultural background. A code of conduct will be provided for all workshops and lessons.

The joy of music-making should be made accessible to all.

Additional assistance and support can be made available for neurodivergent learners and learners with physical accessibility needs. Please don’t hesitate to enquire to discuss your needs.
