Violin and Viola Teacher London - Emily Hester

Methodology

I believe that music is for everyone and want to share my passion for performance with you. Whether you want to play for pleasure or take formal exams, I will enable you fulfil your potential and make the most of music in your life.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the violin and the viola.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

In 2009 I graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester with a Bachelor of Music Degree. I have just completed my Masters Degree in viola performance with distinction at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London. I am currently a Junior Fellow in viola at the Guildhall School where I study with Krzysztof Chorzelski (violist of the Belcea Quartet).

- How much do you charge?

I give individual lessons priced at £35 per hour and £25 for 30 minutes. I give new students the option of having either weekly of fortnightly lessons

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home but am also willing to travel to students' homes to teach them within Greater London.
There are excellent transport links to my teaching studio, Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland, Rectory Road and Stoke Newington railway stations are within a short walking distance. There are also many buses that stop on Stoke Newington Road which is 3 minutes walk away.

- When are you available?

I am available to teach 7 days per week. I am flexible although I prefer to teach students at the same time each week. I usually teach adults at the weekend, as they often work full time during the week. I am happy teaching children in the week after school and in the school holidays if they would like.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach students of all ages from beginner to advanced.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning the violin or viola is one of most rewarding things you can do. Music promotes happiness and optimism whether you are performing or listening to it. I will help you fulfil your potential as a violinist or viola player and teach you how to teach yourself what you need to know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As a teacher I have experience of teaching both adults and children and have two students who have successfully auditioned for the National Children's Orchestra. I am happy to prepare students to take Associated Board graded exams if they would like to enter. As a performer I have performed throughout the UK, in Europe and China. I was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2002 to 2005, being appointed Principal viola in 2005. I have performed several times at the BBC Proms. As a soloist and chamber musician I have performed at many venues including the Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham International Music Festival and Wells Cathedral.

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

Yes

- Where and with whom did you train?

From 1999 - 2005 I studied at Wells Cathedral School, Somerset which is a government funded specialist music school. During this time I studied with the renowned violist Philip Dukes. As a student at the Royal Northern College of Music I studied Professor Mark Knight who has trained some of this country's finest string players.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Yes, I belong to the Incorporated Society of Musicians.
