I teach in my own home in Wembury, Plymouth PL9 Monday to Thursday 9am -5pm and evenings are available where requested.
I work with the individual and tailor my approach to suit the learning style of the student; together we agree upon the target outcomes and then break it down into manageable and recognisable steps. In violin teaching, I have a holistic approach and pay attention to the movement and flow of the whole body using strategies from Alexander Technique and Yoga.
I do feel that learning should be engaging and enjoyable so I try to make the lessons fun.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Kitty will plan your first lesson with care.
