Personal Description:

I am an ex-London professional violinist with 15 years experience of playing with some of the best orchestras in the country, including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
I'm also an experienced pianist and piano accompanist both performing solo in London hotels and restaurants and accompanying professionals in concerts and auditions.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 30 years teaching experience teaching both privately and in schools (both private and state), music centres and adult education colleges.I have a 100% ABRSM pass rate with the majority of my students gaining merit or distinction.
I have taught individual, group lessons, chamber groups, orchestral sections and string orchestras both as tutor and conductor.
I have taught all ages from 4-74 and all levels from beginner to Advanced, including Grade 8 and college/university entrance. I specialise in intermediate-advanced violinists and have an unusually in-depth knowledge and expertise in teaching violin technique due to my own extended training with five, internationally respected violinists / teachers (Please see my **E-mail Address Removed** for more details).
I also specialise in Adult learners.

Tutoring Approach:

Music is a joy that should be available to everyone; with the right approach everyone can learn to play an instrument. With patient, encouraging, non-judgmental, inspiring teaching, combined with an understanding of the psychology of learning, everyone, no matter what their innate musical ability, can gain satisfaction from learning an instrument.
