Professional Violin and Viola player available for lessions! Experienced and enthusiastic teacher!

Methodology

I have been teaching online now for a few years and I find that although that it is not an ideal environment it is something definitely worth pursuing and is very rewarding. After the online lessons I supplement them by recording the pieces, scales or technique that we have talked over in the lesson so that you can view it over the week to help with any issues. I am also available to contact over the week should you have any questions on what we have discussed! I have a very stable fast internet connection and use a good microphone for the lessons so the quality is as best as it can be. I am able to use Zoom, Skype or any other platform that you wish but I have found that Zoom works best for these lessons. I look forward to seeing you online!

I supplement my lessons with duet sessions, practise competitions, mock exams, aural training, music theory, masterclasses and games, and organise informal and formal concerts for my students. I have found these concerts to be very helpful for my students' development as they gain in experience and confidence and learn how to manage any performance anxiety over time. The student recitals are also an excellent opportunity to build and maintain good relationships with parents and guardians, as they provide a good setting to discuss each student's needs and to celebrate their achievements with family and fellow peers. To date I have had a 100% success rate in my pupils' ABRSM and Trinity/Guildhall exams, and have tutored students who achieved musical entrance scholarships to schools.

Experience

I graduated from the Royal College of Music, London with a BMus Hons, in 2009 and a Postgraduate diploma in 2010. From an early age I was encouraged to study music, and my love of the Violin/Viola developed through studying with inspirational and dedicated teachers who were enthusiastic about my potential. This enabled me to further my training, and I now lead a busy and successful career. Being immersed in music and guided so diligently throughout my studies was a wonderful experience and one that I seek to replicate in my teaching.
