I don't have a rigid method of teaching as my approach depends on what it is the person is wanting to achieve or work on in the lessons. I am very happy to discuss what your particular aims are in learning the instrument and am flexible in what kinds of music you might want to learn to play. With previous tutees I have taught folk and fiddle music and Arabic music as well as traditional Western classical music. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about learning the violin or the viola or any music-related questions!
I have been tutoring since 2014 as I wanted to pass on some of the fantastic teaching I was lucky enough to have on the violin and viola! I have tutored a range of tutees, from ages 6 to 56, and have taught absolute beginners of both violin and viola.
I started learning the violin aged 6 and gained a government scholarship aged 13 to study at a specialist music school where I studied violin, viola and singing. In sixth form, I attended Junior Guildhall and was a member of the National Youth Orchestra, and then went on to study Music at Oxford University where I performed two recitals on viola as part of my Finals examinations.
Jo has had over six years' experience tutoring music at GCSE, A-level, and university levels, as well as teaching violin, viola, and music theory. She always conducts herself very professionally, and is responsible and mature. She is very friendly and helpful when giving lessons, which boosts her students' confidence, and she also shows great care and thoughtfulness in preparing her lessons.
