« Perfect! Benny is a fun and patient teacher, and teaches technique as well as the pieces. He has inspired my daughter to look forward to her lessons, something that never happened with her old teacher. Benny is not just teaching the stuff you need for your exam, he also teaches you a piece of your choice. I highly recommend Benny to anyone learning the violin. »

Professional violinist with 5+ years experience teaching. NYO alumni + Bachelors in Music

Methodology

Every violinist is different and so every lesson should be different too!

I structure every lesson to make sure that you get the most out of our time together and more importantly, remember what you've learned.

**Unsure of whether you can start lessons because of the Pandemic?**

**No worries!**

**We can take our lessons online. With my clear guidance, and good wifi, it won't be any different to having a lesson in person!**

I teach a wide range of students with different goals:
- Primary School children who want to get ahead of their friends
- Secondary School teens who are not satisfied with their school-supplied teachers
- University students who want to explore their hidden talents
- Conservatoire students requiring intensive technical sessions
- Working Professionals who are looking to get back into an old passion
- C-Level executives looking for escapes from their responsibilities

If you don't fall into one of the above categories: GREAT! Get in touch and let's discuss your uniqueness!

Experience

*STILL OFFERING LESSONS VIA ZOOM/SKYPE*

Venture Capitalist by day, musician by night - I fundamentally believe that music is not just a hobby but a way of life.

Learning the violin, I loathed teachers who wasted time and I reflect this in my teaching methods which deliver results.

I've taught c.40 long-term students of all ages, ranging from Grades 1 to DipABRSM/conservatoire-entry standard.

I teach various styles of violin: classical, Irish folk, and jazz.

Perfect! Benny is a fun and patient teacher, and teaches technique as well as the pieces. He has inspired my daughter to look forward to her lessons, something that never happened with her old teacher. Benny is not just teaching the stuff you need for your exam, he also teaches you a piece of your choice. I highly recommend Benny to anyone learning the violin.

Benedict's response

Looking forward to future lessons! She's v. enthusiastic and has a good sense of curiosity which will help her develop musicality.

Julie

Perfect! Benny is super enthusiastic, patient and inspiring for my 12 year old daughter. She thoroughly enjoys her lessons and his method of teaching. I highly recommend Benedict as your violin teacher!

Benedict's response

Fantastic musicality and passion. Future developments will be driven by her own curiosity - I'll make sure to nudge her in the right direction

Perfect! Benedict is a very patient and pedagogical teacher. He was able to overcome the language barrier ("I am French") and adapt very quickly with this new musical vocabulary. He has a rather original way of teaching and offers exercises that I had never done before. Finally, he manages to put the emphasis on practice as well as musicality. Great teacher!

Benedict's response

Great musicality that comes out the more she focuses on her own sound rather than the score. Good technical foundation with easily fixable quirks like tense shoulder. Looking forward to seeing how quickly she can develop into a strong musician

Benedict otherwise known as Benny to us now, has now given half a dozen lessons to my daughter. She very much enjoys her lessons and feels encouraged by him. I have heard a significant improvement in my daughter's violin playing since her lessons with Benny which I think our cat would agree with as he doesn't leave the room now when she plays. I would definitely recommend Benedict as a violin teacher.

J
Justine

Benedict is a very approachable and reliable person who invests a lot of time and effort into tailored lessons and in all that he does. He has extensive knowledge and experience in his field of classical music - I would definitely recommend him to anyone and to all my friends who might need help with violin instrumental training, music history or music theory. I am confident that he will be beneficial to anybody's fulfilment in musical education, and am thankful to have met him.

Benedict did a great job. My skills were far from perfect when we started lessons. We had 10 classes and I felt confident enough to perform in my school. Plus he is a very kind and understanding person. I know I will keep improving with Benedict, thank you

Andrzej

A wonderfully eccentric and patient violin teacher, I looked forward to every session and actually learned to love practice! I have absolutely no talent for music but luckily he does and I saw my level of play and musical literacy improve through his care and craft.

Benedict is a musician with great humor and real talent. Thanks to him, my son has achieved a distinction in his Abrsm diploma in violin this summer. I will not hesitate to recommend him to others. Thanks !

Benny is a wonderful teacher with 'creative' flair. The man had me playing the first few bars of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto in just a short 45mins. Highly recommend.

I met Benny through my university (King's College London) where he was studying music. He has been a great supporter of my musical career ever since. He is a funny, patient, yet very disciplined tutor. Thank you Benny!
