I have a Diploma in Instrumental Teaching (ABRSM) specialising in the Violin and Licentiate (LNCM) in Performance.
While at the East Sussex Academy of Music I achieved the double Music A level (Theoretical and Practical) and German A level. Also Grade 8 Theory of Music. Grade 8 Violin with Distinction. I studied piano and singing as second studies.

- How much do you charge?

Hourly rates vary depending on the instrument and subject. Half hourly rates available on request. Online lessons now available.

I teach from my home in Truro, Cornwall. I can travel to students' houses if necessary, but I have a comfortable and well equipped music room available.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Having over twenty five years of experience, and being privileged to teach in some of the most prestigious schools in the area, I aim pass on my love of music and learning.
The violin is a challenge, but with determination and hard work, as well as fun along the way, it is a journey that I embark on with each student. I treat everyone as individuals and do expect my students to take personal responsibility for their own practice. Progress is so much faster this way.
Pupils' Concerts and exams are offered, but not expected.
Both ABRSM and LNCM exams (LNCM exam Centre is held at my house in Truro)
