I teach both violin and viola privately.

I studied with Susie Meszaros at the Royal College of Music, and later I worked with renowned violist Yuko Inuoe towards my Masters of Performance at the Royal Academy of music.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Recently, two of my violin pupils (sisters) have taken their grade 2 and 4, they were both very pleased with how they performed. I coached them to the highest level for their exams. Another one of my pupils is working towards grade 4, whilst my viola pupil is on grade 6 and other viola pupil is starting grade 1!
As you can see I can teach beginners to advanced at any age. My oldest pupil, Paul, 35 years old, took up violin and is improving vastly!

I have known Olivia since she was a student at Wells Cathedral School of Music. I am a friend of her parents. I've watched her develop both as the musician and person. She is a dedicated musician and also has a calm personality and these qualities I think would make her an excellent teacher. Olivia is of the highest integrity.

Olivia is a very talented player who enjoys her teaching immensely. She is dedicated to her work and her students. There is nothing more that makes her happy than encouraging her students and bringing out the best in them--identifying their strong points and developing them.

Dear Olivia, I am writing to thank you for not just being such a great viola tutor to my daughter, but also a great motivator and a fine example of a skilled violist yourself. You have spent the last year and a half fine-tuning and shaping her viola playing technique and also making her believe in her ability. With your help she succeeded in her Grade 6 viola exams! Thank you so much. With warm wishes, Gloria
