Violin lessons with an experienced conservatoire graduate (BMus 1st class Hons, MPerf at Guildhall School of Music and Drama ongoing). All ages and stages welcome!

Methodology

Without enjoyment, practice and lessons become a chore. I am a patient and friendly tutor always seeking out ways to make every lesson informative and enjoyable in order to nurture a positive relationship between the student and the violin.

Everyone learns in different ways and at different rates, because of this I provide personalised lesson plans to fit the goals and commitments of each individual. For younger pupils, I may suggest a practice diary and half-hour lessons as oppose to to hour long sessions. Previous students have successfully undertaken ABRSM exams - if this is something you may be interested in do let me know as I am happy to facilitate that in our lessons.

Experience

Hello! I am a graduate violinist and masters student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. I have taken part in performances as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician across Europe and have 6 years of experience in teaching beginners to advanced level students from ages 5 and upwards. I have studied with professors including Itzakh Rashkovsky, Leland Chen and Bartosz Woroch, and am well versed in violin pedagogical techniques.

Please see my CV below for more information or send me a message if you'd like to arrange a free consultation lesson.

Brilliant tutor. Amy has been teaching me violin for a year and has been immensely kind and patient. Impressive level of knowledge. Would definitely recommend!

After a few years break from the violin I thought I’d never get myself back to the stage I used to perform at as I’d forgotten so much, but with Amy’s guidance, motivating approach and inspiring levels of talent and knowledge I found myself playing at a standard I didn’t believe I’d ever get to. I used to think of practice as a chore but it’s now a major highlight in my day! Amy is by far the best teacher I’ve ever had and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.

Amy is an excellent tutor, very patient and kind! I love going to lessons with her, she makes them fun and I can see the improvement in my playing after just a short time. 5 stars :-)

Not only is Amy a fantastic violinist, but she is also a lovely and kind person. She is immensely talented, and an all round pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!!

Amy tutored my daughter for a year. B had been learning for a year and Amy was so lovely about assessing where she was at and what B needed to make progress. Amy was always so encouraging, gave sensible goals for my then 11y old daughter to work on during the week and set a good mix of music/tunes and technique and scales for B to work on. Amy was also always willing to play things again and again for B to grasp a new tune... this was huge as B mainly plays by ear. Amy is really missed since she moved south. B would love to be able to continue being tutored by Amy, if only it were practical. I am more than happy to be able to give this recommendation as Amy made a big impact on my daughter at a time when B was finding dealing with new people difficult. B took to Amy straight away due to her gentle (but no nonsense!!), open, honest and friendly approach.
