I am a friendly, patient and dedicated violin and viola teacher with 17 years professional experience. All ages and abilities are welcome. I am able to tailor lessons to suit individual students’ needs, whether you are preparing for exams, auditions or recitals or just playing as a hobby.
I can prepare students for both ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall Exams and also teach music theory focussing on the ABRSM Grade 5 exam. I am happy to travel to your home for lessons at your convenience.
I am very devoted to teaching, having gained a great deal of experience covering a wide range of ages and abilities, from young children to adults and from beginners to advanced students.
My approach is one of flexibility, taking into account the aims and abilities of each individual and tailoring lessons to suit the student’s needs, whether they are preparing for exams, performances or just playing as a hobby. I always strive to make lessons an enjoyable and inspiring experience.
