« Elaine has not only helped my daughter achieve her distinction in grade 6 but also guided her through her grade 5 theory which was somewhat of a challenge. We have been with Elaine for 3 years now and we intend to stick with her all the way through Alice’s grades. I can’t recommend her enough! »

Freelance violinist/violist with over ten years teaching experience both one to one and groups. Happy teaching ABRSM Exams and Grade 5 Theory. Happy to teach in person or online!

Methodology

I tailor my teaching to my students- everyone has an individual way of learning that suits them and I thrive off working with my students to find out what works best for them and their needs. For example, some students love preparing for and taking exams whereas others don’t learn well under pressure. I’m happy to work in whichever way benefits you most.

Experience

I have a Master’s degree in Performance from the Royal Northern College Of Music as well as a Bachelor’s degree from the Royal College of Music - I am a freelance musician who teaches, does recording sessions and works in theatre shows.

Elaine has not only helped my daughter achieve her distinction in grade 6 but also guided her through her grade 5 theory which was somewhat of a challenge. We have been with Elaine for 3 years now and we intend to stick with her all the way through Alice’s grades. I can’t recommend her enough!

Elaine has been teaching my son for four months now and has been such a great tutor and mentor for him. His confidence has grown and he’s enjoying playing so much more. She makes lessons fun and engaging, and interesting. She’s got excellent time keeping along with great communication. I highly recommend Elaine and If I could, I’d be having lessons myself!
