I aim to create a relaxed and fun environment where the student develops the confidence to ask questions and experiment with their violin. I encourage their self motivation and interest gained through the lessons so they remain passionate about learning in their own private practice.
I have enjoyed teaching privately for 3 years, from very young children to adults! I have worked at St.Mary's Music School as a violin teaching assistant for the Saturday Morning classes as well as on their summer courses.

Perfect! Super friendly and took things right back to the basics - ideal.
