I am a very easy to work with musician, I play violin and viola professionally and I work in schools as well as in house visits and online teaching. I teach all levels from the very beginning to professional and can also help with hiring a long term instrument. I am friendly, with a positive outlook in life and happy to accommodate any requests. I have been featured in Birmingham Mail online as Cristinel Bacanu, a trusted and reliable professional as well as playing violin in Netflix dramas.
Featured in Good Morning Britain playing violin live in the show. I play professionally violin and viola and I teach as well. Looking for students of all levels and of all ages. I have been teaching for more than 10 years, and I roughly teach an average of 100 pupils every week including school group teaching. My students take grade exams , diplomas, and even go to competitions. At the moment, my private studio class student ages range from 6 years old to 77 years old! Some of my students take grade exams (Trinity or ABRSM) and some enter competitions or orchestras such as CBSO Youth, National Youth Orchestra, National Children Orchestra, etc).
I have a Masters in Music from Arizona State University, Bachelor in Arts from Ohio University, International Baccalaureate from Music School in Bucharest, Romania.
I also have lots of experience in playing professionally and teaching in UK academia.
Cris has taught our daughter For nearly 5 years, he is an amazing teacher knows how to inspire, encourage and has the patience of a saint! He teaches both practical and theory and has an extensive knowledge of all music genres (not just classical). My daughter loves her lessons and looks forward to them weekly She has progressed well on both standard violin and electric and is currently working towards her grade 7. Highly recommend.
Cris is an excellent music teacher and we could not be happier with our music classes outcomes.
Our 7 years old learned so much in just a few classes! He has so much fun and is motivated to practice every day. He is looking forward to the next class.
Our classes are online and Cris strives in providing the best educational guidance. He has an upbeat personality and understand the student's needs. He is very knowledgeable.
Cris is a very talented musician and an outstanding educator and our son just loves him.
Cristinel has a great personality and excellent teaching skills along with solid knowledge. He is very reliable and always gives his best when teaching my kids. Thank you Cristinel
Cristenel had been teaching violin to our sons for 8 years. He is an inspiring, enthusiastic and highly skilled teacher and they both look forward to lessons with him. Our older son, having successfully completed grade 8 violin with Cristinel has recently started learning viola with him. We highly recommend him as a teacher.
I was looking for a Romanian violin teacher, to help our 9 year old son play romanian songs/carols (coming from a traditional, musical and religious background, for us is very important to keep traditions alive), and we found Cristi. He noticed on our first lesson how to inspire, make my son more confident and improve his skills and abilities to play violin. I think that was the moment when me and my husband decided that all our 3 boys will have Cristi as a violin/ piano teacher. He isn't just an amazing teacher to our boys, but also a good friend. We hope he will be around our boys for many years to come.
I was allowed to be present at my every son's tuition for over the last year, and I am very confident with what I saw. Chris is a very kind, patient and easy adaptable teacher to every child.
Every single session is different and fun, you will pass your grade will flying colours!
