—  teaching  —

I am an enthusiastic and creative teacher of music (specialising in music composition, music theory, aural training, singing and choral singing) and Icelandic language and literature (specialising in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)). I am DBS checked and happy to teach in person (in the South East of England or Reykjavík, Iceland) or via the internet. I accept individual students as well as groups. See below for further information on my teaching experience. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions: CONTACT.

I have delivered lectures and programmes in composition, music theory and aural training in England, Ireland and Iceland since 2009. Institutions include Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, King's College in London, DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama in Dublin, Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavík, Listaskóli Mosfellsbæjar music school Iceland, and Tónsalir music school Iceland.

I have tutored vocalists since 2012, both privately and in groups, for instance at the Söngskóli Sigurðar Demetz in Reykjavík Iceland, and as the conductor of the Drengjakór Reykjavíkur (Reykjavík Boys’ Chorus) and the Icelandic Choir of London.

During my time as teacher and curriculum lead of Icelandic Language and Literature at the Southbank School and Halcyon School I have developed teaching material and assessment assignments for students of varying levels, and have nurtured ongoing student centred reflective practice, as well as delivered formal end of module evaluations for students of grade eleven and grade twelve. Through my teaching career I have demonstrated the benefits of utilising online platforms to enhance learning and offer additional opportunities for engagement. At the Southbank School I have received formal IBDP training.
