Personal Description:

My training was at the Royal Manchester College of Music where I studied with Endre Wolf and later had lessons in London with the celebrated teacher Kato Havas. As soloist I have given many recitals including the Wigmore Hall series and performed concertos with orchestras throughout the UK plus BBC broadcasts with the West Riding String Quartet.
I am now a violinist and soloist currently leading Oxford Proms Orchestra giving Summer concerts in the Sheldonian Theatre and other venues and also visiting schools in Oxfordshire to give workshops as part of Oxford Proms education outreach. I have previously been a full time violinist with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Leader of the West Riding String Quartet.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught both privately and been employed as upper strings teacher for the Leeds Music Service when I was first violinist in the West Riding String Quartet teaching students at the University of Leeds, and Berkshire Maestros teaching violin and viola to students at all ages and levels. My students usually achieve a merit or distinction in ABRSM grade exams and some have gone on to specialist music schools including Chethams and music colleges to study for a career in music. I also teach advanced students post Grade 8 and specialize in technical issues such as vibrato, advanced bowing technique, and chord playing in the solo works of J S Bach. I also have a number of adults of different ages returning to playing after a long absence.

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a free consultation lesson at my Kidlington studio with no obligation before a student decides to commit to having lessons. Parents can sit in on lessons. My approach for young beginners is to get them playing a simple tune without the initial burden of music reading which is a feature of the Japanese Suzuki method, although I am not a Suzuki teacher. This works well and gives pupils a sense of achievement.
I have a number of smaller size violins which pupils can borrow at no extra cost.
For young pupils an hour's lesson may be too long so I can offer a 30 minute lesson for a pro-rata half hour fee.
