Music is hard but not as hard as you thought. Everyone can be good as long as we enjoy playing music and spend sometime to practice. So don't be afraid picking up any instrument no matter what ages you are. I am sure, it will be a lot of fun to work with you.

I am a professional viola player. I have been performing in most of the important concert venues in London, such as Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Center and Cadogan Hall.I am also a qualified music teacher. I have been teaching Violin,Viola and Piano in all levels for over 10 years.I have experience teaching privately and schools. I used to be a violin/viola tutor in Merton Music Foundation, I am also the violin teacher in St Mary's RC School, the Priory school and Bishop Gilpin school in Wimbledon. I have brought kids through their ABRSM exmas with all levels and high marks with Merit or Distinction. Apart from teaching, I am still performing regularly with several symphony orchestras and chamber groups as a violist.

Yes. I have a valid CRB certificate with Enhanced Disclosure.

- 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.
