Violin Teacher Brighton | Violin Lessons Brighton

Methodology

Professional and sympathetic teaching. I specialise in teaching adults. School age pupils who have achieved minimum grade four are also welcome.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Violin technique and musicianship to school aged pupils from grade 5 ABRSM, and to ADULT BEGINNERS & RESTARTERS to advanced level for performance.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have over 25 years experience as a violin teacher.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35.00 per hour or pro rata.

- Where do you teach?

At my home the "Rottingdean Music Studio", 11 West Street, Rottingdean. The coastal buses from Brighton/Eastbourne stop outside or opposite the teaching studio.

- When are you available?

I am flexible regarding teaching hours: daytime or early evening until latest 20.00 hours. The actual time has to avoid any lessons scheduled by the piano teacher Margaret Copestake.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

ADULTS are very welcome as BEGINNERS/RE-STARTERS or of an ADVANCED level. All will receive sympathetic teaching. For school age a minimum standard of Grade 5 ABSRM is required.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Associated Board examinations where considered necessary and also up to degree level. I am more interested in providing pupils with a secure technique and musicianship with a wide range of repertoire than the treadmill of exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Not available.
