Professional violinist, based in Epsom, Surrey offering individual lessons, online and in person.

Methodology

I work with students on technique and practice strategies, with a view to making practice fun and productive, focused on all aspects of music making and communicating with the listener. As a regular performer I know the ups and downs of playing in front of an audience and I believe that everyone can enjoy doing this. Music should be a joyful process!

Experience

I have a postgraduate teaching qualification from London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and I have performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Brandenburg Sinfonia and many other orchestras. I have been playing professionally for ten years. I have also worked with groups in primary and secondary schools, creating music for performance. I have an up to date DBS certificate.

I speak basic modern Greek and have learned and performed many traditional Greek tunes for the violin, so I am happy to share this knowledge with students.
