Raja - Hanger Lane - Violin

Methodology

Lots of people say to me, "The violin is a very tricky and unruly musical instrument. Is that really something that I could play??
My answer is short and simple, "Absolutely!"

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the violin.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am a graduate of the Royal College of Music.

- How much do you charge?

My prices starts from £40 per hour and can be negotiated in some cases.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at students' homes at an agreed time and day and I also offer regular online lessons and students can be from all around the world!

- When are you available?

I can discuss my availability with every student or parent individually.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages, from 6 to 70.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for ABRSM or Trinity Music Exams.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I am a creative, versatile, fiery and passionate violinist constantly thinking outside the box. I believe being a good violinist depends on many fundamental elements .You are only trained to be a good musician but while you're learning to play nicely you'll be developing parts of your personality too.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience in chamber music, session work, collaboration across different genres (classical/fusion/folk and world music), improvisation, cross-art projects, musical comedy and making music accessible to a wide audience.

I play for a variety of orchestras and bands as well as teaching violin.

I have performed internationally and at many prestigious venues in the UK including the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican Centre, St. John's Smith Square, and the Bridgewater Hall. I enjoy a varied freelance career.

My work includes collaborations with instrumentalists, singers, orchestras, and pop groups, both for live performances and recording work. I founded my own quartet and trio string band that is doing well.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained at the Royal College of Music.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

2- String Teachers Association (ESTA)

I was introduced to Roger by my girlfriend whose little brother had been taking lessons with Roger and showed significant improvements during a short term. It took me little time with Roger to realise not wanting to continue my violin lessons at high school due to "weak talent" was nothing but an excuse.
He is such a fabulous friendly motivator!

Roger has been my daughter's violin tutor for 5 years now and guided her from scratch to one of her school's leader players!
And just recently my nephew has started taking lessons from him.
Anyway he's professional and really knows his job.

R
Ray

As a professional trustworthy tutor, Raja does a great job. He knows very well how to put up with different age ranges through proper strategies and his music skills are unbelieavably unique. I absolutely recommend him whether you're a beginner or you already play.

S

I've been his student for 3 years and I can say with confidence that he is fantastic.
The way that he teaching is really great and technical.
On the other hand his a nice, lovely and kind man and reliable.
