Personal Description:

Learning to play the violin is a wonderful challenge! I am a graduate of the RNCM and a member of Manchester Camerata and Opera North. I have taught many private students and offer one to one violin lessons from my home in Bredbury, Stockport. At the moment zoom lessons are also possible in the name of social distancing!

Whether you want to study for exams or play for fun I will tailor my teaching to your preferences, the main thing is to find the love and enjoyment in music making.

I have a busy career working with Opera North and Manchester Camerata as well working freelance with other local orchestras such as the Halle and Northern Chamber Orchestra. I have education experience as a practice assistant at Chetham's School of Music and playing in quartets for education outreach projects with Live Music Now.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching experience with adults and children of all ages at Chetham's School of Music, Sheffield Music Academy, Bolton Music Service, BBC Philharmonic outreach project team and Sefton Music Service. All ages welcome!

Tutoring Approach:

Friendly, patient and approachable teacher willing to teach students of all ages and abilities. I believe that learning the violin should be an enjoyable experience!

My pupils have achieved distinctions in ABRSM grade exams and I am happy to prepare students for exams if they wish
I have flexible hours and am happy to travel to pupils' homes if appropriate- travel expenses will apply. I can help pupils prepare for ABRSM exams if desired or can start beginners from scratch!
