Jackie teaches students to effectively explore all genres including baroque, classical, romantic and 20th century. She encourages collaboration with other players in duets and concertos with regular performances throughout the year. Jackie has won several awards and her students have scholarships and bursaries to prestigious schools and specialist music schools including Brighton College, Wells Cathedral Music School and Christ Hospital School and have gone on to perform and teach internationally.​
