At 26 she began lecturing on a BA through Wolverhampton University/AMS, mentoring composition/songwriting/percussive guitar students and teaching film music. She has written percussive guitar materials for BTEC and songwriting materials for Foundation Degree. As a singer-songwriter she has self-released two albums.
