Marike - VIOLIN teacher - EAST LONDON and get around - all ages and abilities

Methodology

I'm a London based violinist performing solo, chamber and orchestral music around Europe. Orchestras I have worked with recently include London Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra. I have many years of experience teaching students privately of all ages and abilities. I approach every student individually, attempting to inspire and motivate them to flourish in their studies.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Classical violin, chamber music, aural studies and general music.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Masters of Performance degree from the Royal College of Music where I was studying with Prof. Radu Blidar and previous to that I completed my undergraduate studies (BMus Hons) at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with Prof. Krzysztof Smietana.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 for a 60 minute lesson if the student is traveling to me or receiving the lesson via webcam, £50 if I travel to the student. For lessons shorter than an hour a reduced rate can be discussed.

- Where do you teach?

I am based in East London, a 5 minute walk from Canning Town tube station. I mostly teach from home but sometimes travel to my students homes when necessary.

- When are you available?

I am fully flexible, lesson times are discussed on a lesson by lesson basis.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and all levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I am happy to prepare my students for all exams although I have most experience with ABRSM. I am also ready to support and help with school music curriculums.
When not working towards an exam with a student, I approach things a bit differently; I can work more specifically to strengthen key elements in the student's playing, while still aiming for a high quality of focus. I try to set shorter term goals to help achieve this.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

My online lessons usually take place via Skype.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I've taught students from their very first notes on the violin and I've also had students coming to me from other teachers at various different levels of playing. I have been preparing my students for ABRSM exams where they have achieved great results and I also have experience to bridge Suzuki method students over to music reading. I only teach privately to be flexible with my performing career.

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

Yes I do, I also have a portable DBS.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I moved to London from Estonia in 2013 to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama for my Bachelor studies and after that at the Royal College of Music for my Masters studies. I've studied with several teachers such as Krzysztof Smietana, Radu Blidar and Mari Tampere-Bezrodny. I have been trained to a mixture of Russian and French school of violin technique.

Marike is my daughters violin tutor. She is very dedicated in what she does which is shown through her remarkable teaching skills which has enabled my daughter to pass her exams with merit/distinction. She has my full trust and I would highly recommend her to anyone out there who is looking for a strong passionate violin tutor.

I can certainly recommend Marike
She has been teaching my son now for a few months and she has given him so much enthusiasm for his violin. He now practices regularly (well quite regularly!) and has joined an orchestra.
He’s now making such great progress and it’s really all due to Marike. I can thoroughly recommend her, and she’s such a pleasure to deal with too

G
Graham

I’ve worked alongside Marike in group sessions with kids and was very struck by her unwavering positivity. She is an insightful and sensitive teacher while also having a knack of helping kids focus without needing to resort to negativity or harsh discipline. I strongly recommend you drop her a line!
