Personal Description:

I am a music graduate of Leeds College of Music now working as a freelance musician and tutor. I am Located in West Yorkshire and am a violin and music theory teacher. I also run preparatory music lessons for preschool children.

Tutoring Experience:

I was born in Rostov-on-Don which is a city with a rich musical tradition located in southern Russia. I started my musical education at the age of seven in a Specialist Music School. Where I committed 10 years of my life to learning the violin by following a demanding schedule. During that time I was involved in many concerts as a solo player, a member of the school orchestra and ensembles. It was at that time I started my first tuition helping my tutor by assisting her during lessons. In 2006 I decided to move to England to take up a place in Leeds College of Music where I completed a BA in Classical Music. This gave me a fantastic opportunity to play in the college Symphony Orchestra and numerous ensembles. Outside the college I regularly perform at entertainment concerts. Also during the last 4 years I have managed to tutor a number of students of different ages and levels. This includes preparing them for exams or just learning for personal satisfaction and development. References are available.

Tutoring Approach:

I always carefully plan the individual program for every pupil taking into account their starting point, reasons for learning and preferred learning styles. I think that planning and preparation is the key to effective teaching. I understand that it may be challenging to learn to play a musical instrument but crucially I also know how to make the process enjoyable and exciting. Every lesson is enjoyable and conducted in a friendly atmosphere. I know when it is time to relax and when to focus my student’s attention on complicated details and on consolidating achievements.
I cater for all age groups in my teaching from young children to retired adults.
I also teach all levels of player, from absolute beginners who have not previously learned music or violin playing, to intermediate and advanced students.

Lessons with me are normally centred on learning the classical violin, but popular music can also be incorporated. As students become more proficient, a wider choice of music opens up to them and I will discuss individual preferences with each student in order to develop their particular interests.

I am familiar with the ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall examination syllabuses and students who wish to do so are able to study for violin exams, although these are by no means compulsory.
