Avril - Sparsholt - Violin

Methodology

Currently a post graduate student at the Royal Academy of Music, I am a passionate musician and a dedicated teacher. I am a good communicator and have a warm personality and a real passion for teaching music and for sharing it with others.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach all grades of violin and can support this with music theory lessons. I offer an express course in Grade 5 theory so that students can progress on to higher grades easily.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BMus (Hons) from the Royal Northern College of Music
LRSM with Distinction
Currently studying for MA at Royal Academy of Music

- How much do you charge?

My rates for violin and theory lessons are £13/half hour and £26/hour.

I often offer a trial lesson first so that I can get to know the pupil and they can get to know me and then we take it from there!

- Where do you teach?

I am based in Winchester and also in Central London. I am willing to teach both at my own home and at student's homes, whichever is most convenient .

- When are you available?

I am very flexible and can usually fit my other work around my teaching. I am happy to teach both on weekdays and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and stages are welcome! I'm very comfortable teaching complete beginners as well as more advanced and mature students.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

If pupils wish to work towards grade exams, I prepare them for the ABRSM syllabus.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Please feel free to contact me for lessons whether you are wanting to achieve particular grades or just want to learn for fun!!
If you would like any more information please look at my website (concealed information)
I look forward to hearing from you!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a BMus (Hons) and LRSM with Distinction and am combining professional playing with teaching whilst studying for my masters degree at the Royal Academy. I enjoy teaching the violin and have several private pupils that I teach in London and at my home in Winchester. I also teach on the National Prep Schools Orchestral course at Wellington College and have also taught at the RNCM junior department. At the Academy I am also enjoying participating in the 'Open Academy' department which involves working with musicians and composers on performance projects in schools in London.

In addition to my violin teaching experience I have a great deal of playing experience as first violin in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and more recently as first violin in the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra where I had a place on their professional experience scheme.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have an up-to-date CRB Certificate from the Royal Academy of Music

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am currently studying with Sophie Langdon at the Royal Academy of Music having previously learnt from Thelma Handy (leader of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musician's Union
