Personal Description:

Hello, I am a violin teacher based in Lancashire, and I work at Blackburn School of Music, and Lancashire Music Service. I also perform regularly and in October 2015 I will play the Mendelsshon Violin Concerto at Townley Hall in Burnley and will also perform some duets with my 2 of my students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching for 11 years, and I work in Primary schools and High schools, and have taught privately students of all ages. I have had some good success stories, this year one one my students has been accepted into Cheethams School of Music, and previously I have had a student acheive grade 8 violin with distinction.

Tutoring Approach:

Generally I use ABRSM grade books as a gradual way to build up confidence and ability. I listen to my students needs also, and if they want to play bittersweet symphony or some traditional Indian music then this is what we will work on. I have some excellent practice techniques to share and they are proven to help acheive a high standard of playing.
