After completing my degree in music at The University of Manchester in 2014, I was awarded a scholarship to study ethnomusicology at master’s level at the same institution. I discovered my love of ethnomusicology through the performance of klezmer music, which I started in 2012.

Since then, I have become increasingly interested in musical traditions and cultures around the globe, particularly in Eastern Europe, and I am currently involved in many klezmer projects and performances in Manchester.

I am also passionate about teaching and sharing music with young people, and for the past three years I have been teaching clarinet, flute, saxophone and piano to both individuals and whole classes in various primary and secondary schools in Greater Manchester.

Making music with others is such a positive and creative experience because it allows people to express themselves in an open and non-judgemental way, which enables us to learn more about each other. This is why I encourage musicians to share their music and collaborate together: it unites people from different backgrounds and cultures, and it creates something that can be enjoyed by all.
