« I didn't quite know whether violin lessons were going to be fun or a struggle, especially starting as an adult learner. After the first lesson with John I knew it was going to be fun and I felt relaxed! John keeps explaining instructions in different ways until the penny drops! I think John is especially good at changing the sound of the student's playing by analysing the student's movements and correcting when necessary – within 5 minutes the sound that comes out of your fiddle could change a lot! »

John has taught me regularly over the last 10 years, culminating in lessons as part of my music degree at Goldsmiths University. His lessons are always extremely insightful and fulfilling. I owe an awful lot of my technique and repertoire to John's brilliant teaching and playing.

John is an amazing fiddle player and inspirational teacher. He not only has a deep understanding of the music, but is incredibly skilled at bringing out the best of a musician, on a personal expressive and creative level, whilst improving technique and musicality.
