- Tell me about some of your current students.
My two youngest students are 5 years old, who is learning violin and piano respectively. They both enjoy their music lessons and very enthusiasm abour playing music, despite learning instruments being quite a challenge. My oldest student was a 65 years old lady, who was learning viola with me. She first thought it might be quite difficult for her, but we covered the difficulties and she really enjoys playing viola. Some of my students are in their Grade 7 and Grade 8 stage now and I have brought them through the previous exams and now they are building up a very high level confidence in playing the instruments and also leading the sections in their school orchestras.
