Elaine - Battersea - Viola

Methodology

Greetings! My name is Elaine Chen. I was born in America and grew up in Taiwan. I am a third year undergraduate music student from the Royal College of Music, my major instrument is the viola, and I also teach the piano. I love teaching.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

My major instrument is viola, but I teach piano as well. If anyone is interested in learning the Chinese string instrument - er hu - I would love to teach as well.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have passed ABRSM examinations in performance level viola and grade 8 piano. I have also passed grade 7 er hu.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £25 per hr for both viola and piano, and if possible I like to teach at my own home, but if students or parents prefer me to teach at their house, I only charge extra travel expenses.

For teaching Chinese, I charge £20 per hr

- Where do you teach?

I personally prefer to teach in my own house, because it is more comfortable for me.
However, I can also teach in a student's house if their parents can't bring their children here to have a lesson.

- When are you available?

This year before summer, any time except for Monday is fine, but I also have lessons and orchestra to attend, so apart from that, I am free.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

For viola I love to teach anyone at any age, and for piano, I love to teach children between 2 - 12, and for Chinese, anyone who needs basic conversation or more.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Feel free to ask me any questions about anything during the lessons.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I joined an orchestra aged 9, I've given quartet performances in all sorts of events, and have given a solo viola performance in concerts with the New Shanghai orchestra. I have been teaching since I went to college, taught kids from 3 - 16 years old for viola, piano and music theory, 2 adult students as well.

In college I have been playing in the orchestras such as philharmonic, symphony orchestra, etc, and performing with my quartet in the hospital to cheer up patients.

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

No.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am learning the viola at the Royal College of Music with Susie Mazero
