Personal Description:

I am an experienced violin/fiddle teacher, qualified with a PGCE (Primary Education), and a BA (Hons) in Performance.

I have experience of teaching adults and children alike, whether it be for exam preparation or purely for enjoyment. I currently work as a Project Musician at The Sage Gateshead, where I teach fiddle to adult beginners.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught one to one and group violin lessons in the UK for over 8 years, seeing many students grow and flourish into confident musicians over this time. I also work as an Arts Education specialist, using the Arts to improve the lives of young people, across the north east.
In 2015 I was fortunate enough to work in Thailand where I taught fiddle music to Burmese refugees in Mae Sot Refugee Camp. Since returning, I have worked as a Primary School teacher at West Newcastle Academy, where I am their Music specialist.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are fun and engaging, bringing out the best in students and individually tailored to their learning style.

I teach a variety of musical styles and techniques, but have particular skills in folk music (English, Scottish, Irish, European and American). I play for the The Sage Gateshead, and am part of The Cake-cutters trio, playing Americana/gypsy jazz fiddle.

So, whether you are looking to pick up a violin for the very first time or improve your technique, please send me an email or give me a ring.
