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!

Olivia is absolutely amazing! I really struggle to understand timings and differentiate between similar notes, and she's so patient and lovely. She's encouraged me to challenge myself and I feel like I've learnt so much in such a short time. Thank you!
I have known Olivia since she was a student at Wells Cathedral School of Music. I am a friend of her parents. I've watched her develop both as the musician and person. She is a dedicated musician and also has a calm personality and these qualities I think would make her an excellent teacher. Olivia is of the highest integrity.
Very patient, knowledgable and is able to make things clear and easy to understand. Olivia has a keen drive to get the best out of u at a pace you are comfortable, and able to keep up with.
Olivia is a very talented player who enjoys her teaching immensely. She is dedicated to her work and her students. There is nothing more that makes her happy than encouraging her students and bringing out the best in them--identifying their strong points and developing them.
Olivia is a well educated and talented musician. She’s an attentive and patient music teacher and I would highly recommend her as a tutor especially for children and young adults
Liv has been teaching my daughter for a few months now.
She is patient and professional.
always happy to explain.She is fun and has a very nice and relaxing voice
I would definitely recommend her!
Olivia is the best music teacher I had. She is exceptionally patient and kind. She made the lessons so easy to understand making it exciting and fun. I look forward to book more lessons with her.
Olivia is a remarkable musician and teacher. Having performed with her on numerous occasions, I can highly recommend her.
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
