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.
