Hi! My name is Clarissa and these days, I'm an academic researcher in chemistry. I have been an amateur player for 25 years and counting. Although I do not play professionally, I did previously teach beginners and intermediate students, aged between 5 - 65, in Sydney for 7 years (1999 - 2006).
I started teaching in my high school as a student and I am someone who is flexible and capable of working with people of any ages who would love to learn violin or piano. I believe every individual is different. The content and teaching style would hence be catered to suit individual's interest and ability, taking a more democratic approach.
Who am I? I'm a Scottish traditional fiddle player, singer and composer, classical violinist and pianist, community music practitioner and music teacher, currently studying for a DipABRSM Teaching Diploma What are my qualifications? DipABRSM Violin (Pass), Grade 8 Piano (Distinction), AMusTCL Theory and Composition (Pass), Grade 8 Theory (Merit), BA Music (First Class).
Welcome to my profile! I am an experienced tutor, passionate about teaching and would love to have you as one my students. I promise that you will not regret it! I have been playing violin for over 20 years now and music has been my greatest passion.
I believe in teaching by doing. Most techniques can be learned through studies, scales and simply practising. I demonstrate how the technique should be performed then give advice on how to perfect it.
