Teaching Experience


I have been teaching tin whistle and flute for about 12 years, and have always found it so rewarding. I have experience teaching children and adults of all ages and levels- either through private one-to-one lessons, group lessons, workshops, corporate events, or Skype lessons. I have also worked as a teaching assistant, tutor, and guest lecturer at university level. Here are some of the organizations and workshops I've had the pleasure of teaching for so far:
