Denise - Leighton Buzzard - Violin

Methodology

I am an ex-London professional violinist who is passionate about the violin - and enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge and expertise with other budding violinists. I'm also an experienced pianist and piano accompanist.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin (specialism) Piano Keyboard

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Dip RCM and ARCM from the Royal College of Music and an ALCM from the London College of Music.

- How much do you charge?

My fees are as follows:
Before 5pm: £35 per hour ; £18 for 30 minutes
From 5pm: £40 per hour ; £20 for 30 minutes
Advanced students (Grade 6 and above): £40 per hour

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. Students often travel from surrounding areas including Milton Keynes. Dunstable, Luton, Aylesbury, Bedford, Woburn, Berkhamstead and Tring.

- When are you available?

I teach daytimes / early evenings from Monday- Friday.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from age 11 upwards to 75 - and beyond! I teach all levels from beginners, intermediate to advanced. I specialise in intermediate-advanced violinists - and adult learners.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Associated Board (ABRSM) examinations.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I believe everyone can learn to play an instrument: with patient, encouraging, supportive, non-judgemental teaching combined with an understanding of the 'psychology' of learning, everyone can gain satisfaction from learning an instrument and experience the joy of music for themselves.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am an Ex-professional London Orchestral violin player with 15 years experience playing with some of the best orchestras in the country including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as well as performing solo and chamber concerts.
I also have experience as a professional pianist and accompanist, regularly playing solo piano (classical and jazz) in a number of London hotels and restaurants as well as accompanying professionals in chamber concerts and auditions.

On the teaching front, I have over 30 years teaching experience - teaching both privately, in schools (both public and state), music centres and adult education colleges.
I have taught individual, group lessons, chamber groups, instrumental sections, and string orchestras - both as a tutor and conductor. I have taught all ages from 4 up to 75 - and all levels from beginner up to advanced and college/university entrance level including Grade 8 preparation and preparation for music college entrance. I specialise in intermediate-advanced violinists and have an unusually in-depth knowledge and expertise in teaching violin technique due to my own extended training and study with five , internationally recognized violinists/teachers.
I have a 100% pass rate for entering students for ABRSM exams over 30 years with the majority of my students achieving merit or distinctions in their exams.

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

I have been CRB checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at the Royal College of Music. Before, during and after my training at the Royal College I trained with some of the finest international violinists including Hugh Maguire, Raymond Cohen, Rodney Friend, Erich Greunberg, Emmanuel Hurwitz and Tessa Khambatta.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students include children/young people and beginner and improver adults (including retired adults / seniors) learning violin, piano and popular/jazz piano.
