Ever since the age of five, I have been learning to play the piano. My first teaching practice, was started with the help of my own teacher, at fourteen years old. For the next five years, I supported youngsters learning to play, right through to their grade 2 exams. I took a break from teaching whilst moving into administration work, in banks and accountancy firms in London. After raising my family, for a few years I worked in schools doing special needs support work and exam administration work.
