Fun and professional violin & piano teacher with 10 years experience & first class degree! Fulham - London

About the lesson

My methods of teaching depends on the students personality and ability, often incorporating games into the lessons with students often wondering how they finished so quickly! I like to create a fun environment for musical development where questions are encouraged, and all students are taught how to teach themselves and apply techniques learnt in the lesson to the practice room.

I put a strong emphasis on note-reading from the very beginning as this is key to learning any instrument, and my experience is the earlier it's learnt the faster and easier it is.
I am also very 'hot' on posture - the violin is not the most natural instrument to play in terms of positions held and movement, therefore it is very important to make sure posture is correct to prevent any possible injuries and make it as easy as possible for yourself!

I am just as happy to help students prepare for grades as I am helping them progress without them, the main thing is that music should be fun and not a chore!

About Katy

I have been playing the violin and piano for over 20 years now, graduating in 2015 from the Royal College of Music with a first class bachelors degree, and currently finishing an Advanced Diploma in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, and hope to start a PhD in September. I have performed extensively all over the UK as soloist, most notably as a strings finalist on BBC young musician of the year and at the Battle Proms concert series to audiences of up to 12,000. I've also delved into the Folk world a little and was on tv for the BBC radio 2 folk awards as part of Jim Moray's band!

I first started teaching as a private assistant to Professor Berent Korfker (Royal College of Music) at Just 18, coaching his younger students from the Purcell School and alike. During this time I helped students prepare GCSE and A level practical exams, auditions for music colleges, and I even travelled abroad to an international competition coaching students in prof Korfker's absence.

Working with such talented children inspired and excited me to develop my own class with a more mixed ability. My current class range from complete beginners to well into their grades, with a huge age range of 4 -50! I have a 100% pass rate in all students exams taken - whether that be ABRSM grades or music college auditions.
