Personal Description:

I’m a university music student. I have a deep passion for music, and love to share that passion with others. I can be very sociable, and open to other people, and use these traits to build good relationships with others on a personal and professional level.

Music is my core passion, and I have recently discovered a deep enjoyment in violin tutoring. I think it’s important to engage your students, and to ensure that they are getting the best from their teacher and lessons.

Tutoring Experience:

I’ve been teaching for about three or four months now. However, I have become confident in how I teach. I’m capable of adapting to each lesson for, no matter how much planning you do, something new happens, or the lesson doesn’t quite go how you expect.

Teaching is full of surprises in that way. It presents challenges that helps you grow. I enjoy the level of engagement I get from my students. Their creativity and spontaneity liven up the lessons, which I feel are important traits to cultivate.

Tutoring Approach:

For beginners I like to introduce the Violin in a fun way. Things like Violin bow games to improve bow hold, singing games to teach students to hear notes, and Simon says to learn the string names are things I have found the students most respond to.

For the more intermediate players, they respond to constructive criticism, and positive feedback in order to improve their playing, listening skills, and other areas. Typically at this stage students want to sit exams, but for those who don’t, I am certainly open to the child’s decision and will find music they enjoy playing/learning.
