Information About Ayla - Primrose Hill teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Ayla:
My name is Ayla and I am a violinist in my final year at the Royal Academy of Music. I started playing the violin and piano at the age of 6. At the age of 12 I had passed both my Grade 8 on the violin and piano with distinction and completed my DipABRSM at the age of 15 on the violin, also with distinction. From the age of 14-18 I was a student at the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music where I held a full scholarship and lead the orchestras, as well as winning the Concerto Competition in my final year. I have performed across the UK and Europe playing at venues and festivals such as Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Barbican Hall, BBC Proms and Royal Festival Hall. I am a passionate chamber musician and also enjoying solo performance. I frequently give recitals and have performed concertos with orchestra such as Mendelssohn, Barber and Mozart.
I have been teaching the violin and the piano for 7 years and have enjoyed teaching students of different ages and abilities, ranging from child beginners to amateur adults players. I believe there is no right or wrong age to start enjoying music. I am happy to methodically work through the grade book system but would be equally happy to support someone on their musical journey through another method as exams are not for everyone!
I am an energetic, passionate and patient teacher. I have experienced a broad range of teaching myself (some good, some not so good!) and I have realised that having a methodical structured approach to teaching is very important. With younger students I tend to use the Grade System as I find that is provides clear and attainable goals for both the student and teacher. It also gives the student a sense that they are progressing which I believe is extremely important in inspiring and motivating a pupil to work hard. While the grades provide good structure, I never only rely on exams as they won't provide a consistent source of musical inspiration. I encourage my pupils to join orchestras and play chamber music with friends as at the end of the day, the real joy in music comes from creating it with other people and sharing it with audiences!
