- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach violin, piano, theory, composition and history of music. I prepare students for music exams with either ABRSM or Trinity. But exams are not compulsary and many of my students simply play for pleasure. I prepare students thoroughly in all areas of exam work - scales, sightreading, aural tests or viva voce. I also try to give performance opportunities for those students who are interested, and I do special audition coaching.

I have the ATCL teaching diploma from Trinity College London. I have Grade 8 distinction in 4 different disciplines. I am also a qualified suzuki teacher. The suzuki method specialises in teaching very small children, and is an excellent way to start your musical journey.

30 minute lesson = £15
