I started teaching music to groups in 1994, and since then I've never looked back. My teaching practice has now grown to include adults, children, professionals, beginners, and everyone in between. I teach face-to-face in London, and also over Skype, with clients as far away as Melbourne, Australia. 

Throughout my career, I've held teaching positions at a secondary and tertiary level both in Australia and the UK. I relocated to London in 2007 after I was awarded the Herald Sun Aria Prize, Australia's largest and most prestigious opera scholarship. Since then, I've been teaching voice and piano privately and at Wellington College, and have worked as a sessional vocal coach for Decca. I've also been a seminar leader and educational advisor for Alfred Publishing, the international music education publisher. 

Highlights of my performance career to date include principal operatic roles with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (First Spirit in Massenet's Cendrillon), The Wexford Festival (Mag in Richard Wargo's Winners), The Iford Festival (Atalanta in Handel's Serse) and The Nationale Reisopera of Holland (Olympia in Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann). I perform frequently in concert, and have appeared as a soloist with the London Symphony Orchestra as well as with selected musicians from Musica Antiqua, Köln. My career has also encompassed several musical theatre roles, including Guinevere in Camelot (National Theatre, Australia), Yum-Yum in The Mikado (Opera Queensland) and Young Heidi in Follies (Opéra de Toulon).
