Sophie - Sydenham - Violin

Methodology

If you are interested in learning to play the violin, or are looking for a new perspective don't hesitate to get in touch. I am a friendly, professional violinist with lots of playing and teaching experience and would love to hear from you!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the violin, viola, chamber music and am also able to help with music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied on the Joint Course between the University of Manchester and the Royal Northern College of Music, graduating with a first class honours degree in 2008. I was then offered a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music, where I completed the LRAM Teaching Diploma and received a Master of Arts with Distinction.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour, with an extra £5 added per lesson if I travel to you.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from my home in Sydenham but am happy to travel to you if you prefer.

- When are you available?

As a freelance violin player and teacher, my schedule changes from week to week so I can be very flexible with lesson times.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am happy to teach any age or ability.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM exams if appropriate.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am an experienced violinist and teacher and have played with the London Symphony Orchestra, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and the Scottish Ensemble. I have been a member of Manchester Camerata since 2009 and am violinist with the Berkeley Ensemble (a mixed wind and strings chamber group). I have worked with LSO Discovery and Scottish Ensemble in a wide range of education work and have over 5 years of private teaching experience.

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

Yes, I am fully CRB checked.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied with Clio Gould (leader of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Sinfonietta) at the Royal Academy of Music and with Richard Deakin at the Royal Northern College of Music.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a member of the Musicians' Union.
