Kirsten - Blundellsands - German

Methodology

I love music and I love teaching. Performing and playing music with others is a major part of my life and I want to inspire others to make music part of their lives, too.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am currently teaching the violin privately but also in a local school. I also teach music theory specifically for grade 5 theory exams but also up to degree level.

I am a trained languages teacher and have a wide experience of teaching German and have also taught French in a local school.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a music degree and a university degree as a languages teacher. I also did 2 years of teacher training and gained a teaching degree.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £11 for half an hour, which is usually enough for a beginner up to grade 3. For 45 minutes I will charge £16 and £20 for an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Waterloo, Liverpool, where I have a special music room for my lessons. I also go out to schools for teaching.

- When are you available?

I teach from Monday to Saturday all day, but have to fit students into my current timetable.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and have worked with 5 year olds as well as with people in their 80s.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I mainly use the ABRSM exam board and teach students up to grade 8 and beyond on the violin. My music degree qualifies me to I teach music theory for A-level and beyond.
In German, as a native speaker, I teach any level.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Music is the language that everybody can understand. Make it your language!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for over 20 years and still love it. For many years I have worked as a German tutor in colleges, at university in companies and in schools. For about 15 years I have specialized in violin teaching working mainly as a private tutor with children as well as with adults. I have also worked part-time for Sefton Music Service and am currently violin teacher at Merchant Taylors' School for Boys.
I am an active musician playing in the Crosby Symphony Orchestra, a jazz band called Swingology and a folk group which you can find as Time Ashore on the internet.

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

I have a current CRB as I am working at a school with children.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied the violin at Hanover Music College with Professor van Stumpff. My language degree is from Hannover University.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am teaching about 20 students, most of them are at school age. But I do teach some adults, too. Music theory I teach to you musicians going in for the grades in their instrument.
