Anna has introduced the violin to me in a fun, enjoyable & well structured manner. The lessons are relaxed yet organised, with a real attention to detail, helping to develop my ear, sense of rhythm, musical personality, posture as well as teaching the instrument itself.
Anna is also attentive and has a good understanding of the ABRSM syllabus.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Anna for tutoring services of all ages.
Anna has taught our 8 year old daughter Skyla violin once a week for the last year.
Anna is a wonderful teacher and Skyla both enjoys and benefits greatly from the lessons. Her combination of clear instruction with fun activities works well.
I wouldn't hesitate recommending Anna as a violin teacher.
Anna is a great teacher. Having returned to the violin after a break of many years - effectively starting again from scratch - Anna has been patient, friendly and extremely helpful as she has put me back on track. I would highly recommend her.
