Personal Description:

Elliot is an experienced, versatile and dedicated tutor of Violin and Viola with a Bachelors degree in Viola from the Royal College of Music, London. He is a strings teacher at Tiffin School, St Richard Reynolds Catholic College, and at the Vineyard School in Richmond, and has a number of full-time private pupils in the South-West London area. He has been teaching privately since 2013, and in schools since 2016.

His students and their parents describe him as charismatic, knowledgeable and technical in his approach to working with budding musicians of all ages. Elliot also teaches adult learners, and has worked with people of ages from 4-75.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach a healthy roster of 25+ private students each week, and thoroughly enjoy working with every single one! In the daytime I work as a Violin and Viola teacher at St Richard Reynolds Catholic College Twickenham, and at Tiffin Boy's School in Kingston. I also work at The Vineyard School as an Associate Teacher through the Richmond Music Trust. On a typical week, I mentor around 40 students in schools, and around 25 privately on the Violin and Viola.

Other schools I've worked in the past are Westminster City School, The German School London (DSL), Chase Bridge Twickenham, St Mary Magdalene's Mortlake, and the Queen's School Kew.

I have taught for 8 years privately and 5 years in schools with consistently excellent feedback during my work with both full-time and more casual pupils, and am always looking to expand my teaching in the South-West London Area, specifically Twickenham, Ham, Richmond, Mortlake, Sheen and Kingston. References can be made available from current pupils on request.

During my studies at the Royal College of Music I ran the 'RCM Underground' Performance Platform and peer learning program and acted as a class co-ordinator, meaning that I worked alongside many Conservatoire level students in a pastoral, instructive role. I have taught on a number of Instrumental Teaching Courses in the south of England too. I am a Member of the European String Teacher's Association, Musician's Union and have a current Enhanced DBS check.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach in a relaxed, supportive and adaptive manner, taking the needs of the student into account. I am a great believer that encouragement inspires confidence, and work hard to build genuine rapport with my pupils. If a student needs the time, I will always endeavour to go above and beyond what is required of me to give them the support they need especially in terms of low-income students, where I am happy to negotiate affordable and constructive lesson plans. A student's enjoyment of music is of the utmost importance to me, and I seek to make lessons inspiring, fun and different.

I have a technical approach to working out issues with playing and am keen to work on aspects of a student's technique alongside their musical development. I primarily recommend students to use MTB (Music Teacher's Board) exams, and regularly tutor for this exam board ranging from pre-grade assessments up to Grade 8 and the diplomas beyond. I also offer preparation for ABRSM exams too.
