- Tell me about some of your current students.
Recently, two of my violin pupils (sisters) have taken their grade 2 and 4, they were both very pleased with how they performed. I coached them to the highest level for their exams. Another one of my pupils is working towards grade 4, whilst my viola pupil is on grade 6 and other viola pupil is starting grade 1!
As you can see I can teach beginners to advanced at any age. My oldest pupil, Paul, 35 years old, took up violin and is improving vastly!

My girls have progressed so much under the patient yet disciplined guidance of Olivia...the music they make now is really music to my ears. I am confident Olivia will help my girls to achieve their grade VIII exam.
Dear Olivia, I am writing to thank you for not just being such a great viola tutor to my daughter, but also a great motivator and a fine example of a skilled violist yourself. You have spent the last year and a half fine-tuning and shaping her viola playing technique and also making her believe in her ability. With your help she succeeded in her Grade 6 viola exams! Thank you so much. With warm wishes, Gloria
Oscar has really enjoyed learning the violin with Olivia and has made great progress. Olivia is very patient and makes the lessons fun. He always looks forward to his lessons and is happy to practice.
