Martin - Royal Tunbridge Wells - Violin

Methodology

I have performed at the highest level in Orchestras and small Chamber Groups. I have always enjoyed teaching and am committed to helping each student reach their full potential whilst making playing an instrument an enjoyable experience.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin, Viola and Chamber Music as well as Music Theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating in 1994.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 per hour, £30 for 45 mins or £20 for half an hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Central Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

- When are you available?

I am very flexible and have times throughout the week and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and levels from beginner to diploma standard and beyond. My youngest pupil was 3 years old!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have prepared students for both Associated Board and Trinity exams as well as orchestral auditions and recitals.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Don't be afraid to give it a try! I try to teach everyone as an individual - there is no 'one size fits all' approach. Whether you are aiming to be a professional musician or just want half an hour a week of a fun, relaxing hobby I try to make lessons as enjoyable and productive as possible.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I was a member of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra before being appointed Sub-Principal in the Northern Sinfonia. Since 2006 I have freelanced in London playing with numerous top orchestras as well as being invited to play Guest Principal in orchestras around the UK. I perform many concerts with my Chamber Group, Premiere Strings. I have always enjoyed teaching and currently hold a position at Wycombe Abbey School, Sunday Times Independent School of the Year. I have also been involved in teaching and coaching work at Stowe School and Lancing College and have always taught private students.

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

Yes.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians' Union.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

At Wycombe Abbey I teach girls from 11-18 and their standards range from complete beginners to diploma candidates. Privately I teach an age range from 8 years upwards and have several adult learners who were complete beginners and seem to really enjoy their lessons!
