Personal Description:

I am a Midlands-based freelance musician. I teach violin, viola and theory.
Former member of English National Ballet and Scottish Ballet orchestras, and other UK orchestras. Due to family circumstances, I no longer undertake touring work, but continue to play with freelance orchestras and also play string quartets and with my violin/piano duo for weddings.
Former violin student of Raymond Cohen (London) and Alexandre Brussilovsky (Paris).
Former co-leader of Orchestre International de Paris, Principal 2nd violin of Les Soloistes de Berry and Orchestre des Arts Florrisants.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for over 20 years and many of my students have worked through their grade exams and continued onto Higher Education (Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire, Universities etc).

I teach students from beginners to grade 8 /diploma level.

Most of my lessons take place at my music room in CV4, near Tile Hill railway station.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take students who want to enjoy playing violin. I'm always keen to see students progress and I realise that exams are not appropriate for everyone (for lots of reasons, and I have a number of students who just learn for fun.

What's important is that the quality of their playing is good and they are pleasant to listen to whatever their level.

Learning an instrument can help to develop a number of other skills including listening, attention to detail, staying-power and team working.

My lessons are tailored to suit the individual. I talk to my students and explain fully why holding their violin or bow in a certain way will improve or adversely affect the sound they make.
I expect some practise to take place between lessons and negotiate this individually. If no practise is done, progress is slow or non-existent.
