Liam Hindson has been giving violin lessons to my two children and I am delighted with their progress. The older one has just started preparing for her Grade 1. Liam is very passionate about music and transmits his love of music to the children, who love working with him and describe him as 'funny and a very nice teacher who explains well'. Liam supports and fosters their budding talents and adapts his teaching to their ability. Liam is a serious, quietly enthusiastic, methodical and hard working teacher.
Liam is an exceptional violin teacher. He has a wonderful command of the violin and an ability to teach as well as play fantastically. Anyone who is lucky enough to have Liam as their teacher can feel confident that they will make good and fast progress and have fun while doing it. Technical knowledge coupled with musicality makes him a great teacher for all ages.
