Personal Description:

Hi, my name is Daryl and I have recently finished my MA in violin performance at the University of York. I began learning the violin at the age of 6, and have learnt with many different teachers with various approaches - most recently, William Leary. I also have extensive experience in orchestral playing, chamber music and other settings such as pit band and wedding performances. I am a friendly and enthusiastic individual who enjoys a challenge! In 2014 I joined Keele University Brass band, and have quickly learnt the tenor horn to a competent standard, and have taken part in 3 UniBrass contests (with both Keele and York).

I am willing to travel a short distance and am also happy to discuss the option of group lessons if required.

I have a small number of beginner instruments which can be loaned out if required, and am also happy to help you source an instrument of your own.

Tutoring Experience:

I am experienced in private violin tuition (at all standards) and have also previously worked with my local music partnership on the whole class instrumental tuition programme.

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor lessons to suit the pupils needs. My firm belief is that lessons should (and can be) fun whilst achieving good technique from the onset as this helps pupils to advance more quickly. I push students (as much as they require) to advance as quickly as possible, using a lot of encouragement and praise, as I have found the more they achieve in a lesson; the more time they wish to spend practising and perfecting what they have just learnt.

If the pupil wishes to work through graded exams, I am happy to do this. Equally, if they prefer not to, that is also ok!
