Professional Violinist in London with 25 years of teaching experience from beginner to 1st Diploma level.

Methodology

I believe in creating a relaxed atmosphere in lessons where communication, good posture and humour can enable deep learning. With engagement, understanding and regular time set aside for consolidation, I aim to help lessons be a highlight in musical development. I enjoy teaching adults as well as younger learners and encourage independent learning no matter what the aims or repertoire. I am passionate about playing and teaching music in a variety of styles and my range has included performances with Madonna, Led Zeppelin, the London Symphony Orchestra and various chamber ensembles.

Experience

I studied in Ireland with Adrian Petcu before gaining a scholarship at post-graduate level to study with the Amadeus string quartet at the Royal Academy of Music, London where I was recently made an Associate (ARAM) in recognition of my services to music. Specialising from early learners to 1st Diploma level, students have become both professional players and enjoyed a life long love of amateur music making. I am an ABRSM examiner and regularly present seminars to string teachers in the UK and Asia as well as writing violin teaching books including 'Best of Grade' 1-5 violin books and Violin Studies, both published by Faber. A beginner tutor book written with Paul Harris will be released shortly.
