I am to plan each pupil's lesson to suit their individual needs whilst sourcing suitable music.
My aim is to provide a fun, yet educational lesson in a relaxed environment, taking students through their ABRSM Examinations if desired and have had a 100% pass rate.
I teach all standards from beginner to experienced through a range of ages from 5 years old to mature adults.
I am also experienced in tutoring group music classes for babies aged 18 months to 5 years, working alongside the EYFS.
I have been playing the violin and piano since 1996, and whilst at University, mastered the viola and cello.
Currently also working for Kingston Music Service as violin tutor (as of October 2017) providing one to one lessons with pupils, and also as a classroom violin tutor in the Wider Opportunities Scheme.
Whilst at University, I formed a string quartet which went on to perform at University Graduations, a function for the Mayor of Kingston, fashion shows, weddings and anniversaries and business functions. We have also collaborated with several bands including Emmy's Unicorn and TALA. Through this, the quartet has performed onstage in many venues including 'New Slang', at the Hippodrome, Kingston, live on BBC Radio Wales, at the Dublin Castle, and many more. Shaw Quartet is still together now, and are enjoying performing together for any and every occasion.
Whilst at University, I was awarded 'Highly Commended' in 2011 in the Concerto Competition. I lead the University's Orchestra for over two years, and enjoyed running separate string section rehearsals.
I gained a Higher Upper Second Class Degree in Music with Honours, majoring in Performance. Other subjects studied include:
Music theory and aural training,
Teaching music in schools,
I have expanded my solo performance repertoire on both the violin and piano and have enjoyed exploring new styles. I have performed in several music videos and recorded backing tracks on both the violin and viola.
Working as Deputy Room Leader and Music Coordinator within a nursery setting has given me valuable experience in planning music sessions for a variety of standards and children's personalities. I am looking forward to beginning work with Juma Music as Music Tutor in nurseries and play centres within Surrey.
I am performing to Diploma standard on the violin and above grade 8 on both viola and piano. I also enjoy singing and playing the guitar.
