I take a fun and creative approach to teaching and try to tailor my lessons to the interests and needs of the student. I also provide a thorough approach to violin technique and posture. As a versatile player I can offer tuition in a range of styles including classical ABRSM grades, folk, klezmer, gypsy jazz and improvisation.
I've played the violin for over 20 years and studied Music for my BA at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London where I focussed on Klezmer, Eastern European and Indian music. I play regularly in bands across the UK covering a wide rang of styles such as gypsy jazz, klezmer, folk, bluegrass and North Indian music as well as classical.
I also play guitar and a variety of percussion instruments.
I have over 4 years teaching experience both privately, in schools and for group classes. I taught for Leeds Violin School based at the Yorkshire College of Music and drama where students age ranged from 3 - 80. Now I teach privately as well as running community music groups aiming to make music more accessible to people from different backgrounds. For example I have run music groups for people with physical disabilities and currently run a weekly music group for a mental health charity in Leeds.
I have 100% pass rate for students taking ABRSM exams, many of whom achieved distinctions.
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If the student needs to cancel a lesson and does not give 24 hour notice they are still liable for the full hourly rate
