Georgina - Harringay - Violin

Methodology

Hello, I am a positive and encouraging violin teacher and performer based in N4. Learning an instrument should be fun and something to look forward to! Everyone learns differently, so I take great care to adapt my approach for each student.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Classical Violin, Jazz Vioiln and Music Theory. In addition to my love for Classical Music, I also play in a range of different fiddle styles from jazz and folk to bluegrass so I am very happy to explore different genres of music and improvisation with students if that is something that interests them too!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

GRNCM First Class honours Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester
BMus(Hons) First Class honours Manchester University
PGCE QTS UEL and Mossbourne Community Academy Hackney

(I studied at the RNCM and Manchester University concurrently on the 'Manchester Joint Course')

- How much do you charge?

Prices from: 60 mins - £40 and 30 mins £20

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home studio near Harringay station and can travel to the surrounding areas of Stoke Newington, Islington and Hackney. I also travel to Central London.

- When are you available?

***I am currently taking on more students***

My schedule is generally quite flexible, please contact me for details.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and abilities from complete beginners up to Grade 8. Please do feel free to get in touch.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am happy to prepare students for Grade exams and Music Theory

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a firm believer in Sinichi Suzuki's assertion that everyone can learn how to play the violin beautifully – similarly as everyone learns to speak his or her mother tongue beautifully. Yes, it takes time and patience but the rewards are absolutely worth it. I have been extremely fortunate to have received outstanding and inspiring tuition throughout my own musical career and strive to pass this on to my own students.

It's never to late or too early to start learning the violin - so I look forward to hearing from you!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I really enjoy playing and teaching the violin and it is very important to me that my students enjoy their lessons too. Instilling confidence in students and a love for music is one of my main aims as a teacher. I have been teaching privately and in a school setting for the last ten years.

My students range from four to sixty-five, from beginners to Grade 8. From preparing students for ABRSM exams to experimenting with the electric violin, I am committed to helping students get what they want from their violin lessons and show them the many facets of the violin.


In addition to teaching, I am also an active performer. Although my training was classical, my ability to improvise and interest in different styles has led to quite a varied career! I was nominated for 'Instrumentalist of the Year 2018' at the UK Americana Awards, have performed with blues musician Seasick Steve, musical theatre star Ramin Karimloo, John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin, Mumford and Sons and Paloma Faith. Please see my website for more details.

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

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Yes, the Musician's Union and National Union of Teachers (NUT)

'I can highly recommend Georgina Leach as a violin teacher. My lessons with her have been most enjoyable. She combines the great qualities of being enthusiastic, highly knowledgeable, thorough and well organised in her methods.

Andrew

She is adaptable to her pupils' specific needs, (in my case as an adult beginner). Her manner is relaxed, good-humoured and cheerful, and she is very encouraging of her students. She has the ability to demonstrate clearly and explain memorably the many aspects of violin playing. I am progressing well under her expert supervision and I look forward to every lesson!

Nicole

Georgina Leach has been teaching my 7 year old son how to play the violin for 9 months and during that time he has made brilliant progress. Georgina is a wonderful violin teacher - very professional, enthusiastic and extremely patient. She tailors the lesson to the interests of my son and above all she makes the lessons fun.

Whether for a child or an adult, I would have no hesitation in recommending Georgina as a violin teacher.
