Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught and tutored children aged 6-13 on various music courses around London and Suffolk.

I give musical workshops in my local pre-school and I taught in a local music school beginner piano, violin and viola for a couple of years.

I teach both violin and viola privately.

I spent a year in Lyon Conservatoire, France, learning from some of the best.

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

I have a disclosure and barring service, dbs checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained in the top music school Wells Cathedral School up to sixth form and then spent a year in Lyon Conservatoire.

I studied with Susie Meszaros at the Royal College of Music. Now I am working towards my Masters of Performance with renowned violist Yuko Inuoe at the Royal Academy of music.

- 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!

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.

P
Paul

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.

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.

G
Gloria

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
