I prepare students for ABRSM and Trinity exams in Violin and Music Theory. I can help students learn how to read music and to understand how music works, as opposed to a memory-based approach most music teachers follow. I also encourage my students to be creative and to experiment composing their own pieces. If you’re looking for tutor to develop your skills as a violinist, to prepare for an exam, or to simply start learning a musical instrument, please do get in touch!
I’m a professional violinist and composer. I hold a Master of Music degree in Violin and Composition for Screen from the Royal College of Music.
I have been teaching for 8 years, both privately and in schools. I have helped dozens of students achieve their goals in music, many of whom achieved Distinction in their music exams. I have an extensive orchestral experience and I write music for film and TV.
60min - £40
45min - £35
Online lessons should be paid in advance, at least 24h before the lesson is due to start.
Lessons at the student’s house incur an extra travel charge of £5.
Please note that I cannot offer trial lessons for free.
I know Luís since April 2016; Luís has performed his job as my Violin Teacher with extreme professionalism. Luís has been an amazing teacher and his teaching technique is outstanding. He has proven to be a reliable and trustworthy individual, who has handled every lesson in an excellent manner. His enthusiasm to make sure I am happy with the lessons and advice even under the most difficult circumstances show his great potential within the professional atmosphere.
Possessing these qualities and many more, I would highly recommend Luís to any establishment or individual who may seek his teaching services. I strongly believe he would be able to undertake any commitment with a high level of responsibility, proving himself to be a valuable asset.
Hi there. Luís has taught my kids - variously - violin, piano, music theory and composition for five years now. He is very reliable, very professional and a pleasure to have in our home. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him :-)
Luis is a wonderful teacher but most of all a great musician. He can work well with different students and he has a genuine passion for teaching. He is able to keep his students interested, even the trickiest ones like my son! I could not praise him enough really.
Luís was an incredible tutor! He helped me start understanding music theory when I decided, already as an adult, that I wanted to develop my music skills! He is knowledgeable, patient and very kind (even though I was a challenging student, as a complete beginner!) He combines both a deep understanding of music with the teaching experience required for this work. I couldn’t have been in better hands! I totally recommend him!
Luís is the most caring and intelligent teacher I've ever met. Very knowledgeable too! Highly recommend him as your Music Theory teacher!
Luís is an extremely dedicated and competent professional. He is very knowledgeable and has the ability to transmit his knowledge, patiently, to his students. I recommend Luís as a tutor 100%. He has helped me pass my grade 5 with confidence!
