Personal Description:

I am a freelance viola and violin player based in Birmingham and I enjoy combining teaching with playing. I currently work at two private schools (two days a week) delivering one to one violin/viola/piano lessons and conducting ensembles (string orchestra). I also enjoying teaching at home, which is an area that I am looking to expand. In addition I help to co-run my string quartet and we play at lots of weddings and events across the Midlands.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for 15 years now, working in a variety of settings and locations. I decided to undertake my Suzuki Teacher Training qualification (I learnt this method as a child, so it seemed a natural choice) and then later on the PGCE, which gave me a wealth of knowledge and confidence, whilst honing my teaching skills. I have had the pleasure of teaching people at all levels of playing, right from beginner through to Grade 8 and beyond, helping them to build the necessary skills and knowledge to move onto the next stages of learning.

Tutoring Approach:

At home I can afford to teach in a slightly more relaxed manner, which I really enjoy. Whatever the setting, I like fun, lively lessons with plenty of humour in order to balance out the fine, focused work needed to master an instrument. My Suzuki influence means that I enjoy the support of parents/carers in the lesson and I like them to be involved in the learning process. I have recently taken on a few adult pupils and I am loving the different type of interaction that these lessons bring. I want people to enjoy learning an instrument whatever their desired outcome is and I am happy to support them through all the necessary formal qualifications, or just help them to improve their skills purely for recreation.
