GEOGRAPHICAL AVAILABILITY
I am based on the edges of N16/N4 in north London - Stoke Newington and Finsbury Park so London is generally fine, sometimes further afield. I'm not a car owner, so have to rely on public transport.
AVAILABILITY DURING THE WEEK
My only regular commitment is The Finchley Children's Music Group rehearsals on Sunday afternoons, 2pm-6pm, during school term times, so am potentially free for the rest of the time.
