Tutoring Approach:

Surrey Violinist graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance BMus Hons. in Violin Performance and LTCL with Distinction. PSE (Principle Study enhancement) in conducting and viola.
My Approach to teaching and playing the violin has greatly been inspired by my mentor, teacher and soloist Professor Boris Brovtsyn who introduced me to a way of playing which is free and expressive. I am keen to work towards examination with the student if they wish to or concerts and recitals, or just casual enjoyment. I would use encouragement, patience and understanding to build confidence, develop their self-expression enable the student whether young or an adult learner to achieve their goals and above all to enjoy our lessons together.
