Personal Description:

I am a professional violin and piano teacher and performer with many years experience teaching children and adults from beginners to advanced levels. I trained at the Royal Academy of Music and have an LRAM teaching qualification in both violin and piano I teach in Malvern (near Barnards Green) but am also available for house visits around Malvern and the surrounding areas.

I recently returned to the UK from San Franciso where I worked as a musician and teacher for 24 years. During my time in the USA I immersed myself in many different styles of music which I believe has enriched and expanded my work as a teacher. I have played or recorded with Jane Glover and Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, Michelle Shocked, David Archuleta, Orla Fallon, David Grisman and many more.

I have many years experience as a piano accompanist (exams, theatre, recitals etc) Currently I work for Armonico Consort as a pianist for choir creation workshops and also the AC Academy choir who recently performed at The Royal Albert Hall.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions or would like to chat further about my approach to teaching.

I have a current DBS certificate and also FBI certificate of good conduct for my time in the USA.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught privately and also as a peripatetic teacher in several primary and secondary schools both in the US and the UK. I have prepared students for many performances, auditions and exams and many of my students have won awards and scholarships.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient, supportive and fun teacher. I am passionate about music and strive to inspire my students with a love of music at all levels. I structure my lessons to suit each student's individual needs. For those who wish to take exams, I teach ABRSM or Trinity exam syllabus.Also, I offer several different styles aside from classical including jazz and blues improvisation, folk pop and rock. Students will have the opportunity to perform regularly although this is not mandatory!

No matter what style of music you learn, a solid technique is crucial for progressing to the best of your ability. A key focus of lessons is to be relaxed and comfortable while playing with the correct posture.
