Violin Teacher Greenwich/ SE London - Louise Gibbens

Methodology

I am a professional violinist freelancing and teaching in London. I am very passionate about sharing music with others and acknowledge the importance of passing on these skills to others.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Bachelor of Music in Performance from Trinity College of Music, London.
I have a Diploma of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music for Violin (DipABRSM).

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 for an hour.
£15 for half an hour.
However, if I have to travel to your house I will add a little more to cover travel costs.

- Where do you teach?

I would prefer to teach from my own home in Greenwich as my schedule doesn't always allow travel but I am happy to discuss the best option for you.

- When are you available?

My timetable can vary week to week because of being a freelance violinist but I can teach on a Saturday morning and after school on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I am happy to teach during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and levels but have a great deal of experience in teaching children.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I have prepared my students for ABRSM violin exams - However, it is not essential for all students to take exams. All lessons will be tailored to each student.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Playing the violin is great fun and a wonderful experience! I would love to make music with you!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Teaching experience includes: working as an assistant for several years on the extremely popular String Time programme for 3-11 year olds at Junior Trinity College of Music, violin tutor at Brampton Manor Academy in Newham, violin tutor for Greenwich Music Service, ECAM (every child a musician) programme for London Borough of Newham and Enfield Arts Support Service.

Performance experience highlights: I led Trinity College Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Shostakovich's 5th Symphony under the baton of Edward Gardner (Director of English National Opera), I performed in front of Prince Charles as part of a string quartet for a peace service, I played violin for the UK film trailer for Mike Leigh's film Another Year, I played violin as part of a string quartet on board Cunard's Queen Victoria and I played on the final of Britain's Got Talent 2011! :)

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

I do have a current and up-to-date CRB disclosure certificate.

- Where and with whom did you train?

At Trinity College of Music with Andrew Sherwood. Masterclasses with Natalie Clein, Peter Manning (concert master of Royal Opera House) and Claire Thompson (Philhamonia).
