Violin Teacher City of London/ Angel / Barbican/ Central London - Alison Comerford

Methodology

My name is Alison Comerford and I am an Irish violinist studying and working in London. I have been playing the violin since the age of four. I love teaching keen students.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the violin, viola and can also help with basic theory and musicianship.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have an Honours Degree in Classical Violin from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and am currently studying for my Masters in violin Performance at the Royal College of Music.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour or £20 per half hour. However if I have to travel very far I charge extra for travel expenses.

- Where do you teach?

As I live in a small flat, I do not teach at home. I live ten minutes away from Angel and 15 minutes from Barbican. I am willing to travel to your house however if it is very far out I will have to charge travel expenses.

- When are you available?

I am available most evenings and most weekends. I understand that most parents and students have varying time tables and so I am flexible with my time.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and levels. I have a lot of experience with children from the ages of 4 and upwards.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have experience teaching group violin lessons, one to one lessons and also large scale workshops. With my quartet the Cassian Quartet I have given workshops in the Wigmore Hall to young children as part of the chamber tots scheme. I am also a regular tutor on chamber music courses run by the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras. Last year I went to Iceland with a group of international conservatoire students to teach workshops with school children from the ages of 5 to 18.

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

I do not have a CRB.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied for 4 years with Gregory Ellis the leader of the Vanburgh Quartet in Ireland, four years with Pauline Scott at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and am currently studying with Radu Blidar at the Royal College of Music

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I belong to the Incorporated Society of Musicians.
