Personal Description:

I am a violinist, pianist, composer, guitarist, music producer and vocalist, trained in both classical and jazz traditions. I have taught both privately and at schools, I was previously the piano teacher at Unicorn School, Kew. I studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. I play violin in the London Collaborative Orchestra and run a band called Kala which is published by Perfect Songs. I am a young and friendly teacher with plenty of a teaching experience.

Tutoring Experience:

Freelance Teacher in Violin and Jazz piano over the last two years.
Peripatetic Piano teacher and Unicorn Primary School in Kew
Music and Drama teacher at Emanuel School, Battersea
External Music teacher and assistant at Cheam Common Infants

Tutoring Approach:

For beginners, especially kids, the important thing for me is to get them playing hearing singing clapping and enjoying music as early as possible. I usually start them off using Suzuki method (a Japanese method of beginners teaching where there is a big emphasis on ear training), then slowly start to introduce more theory once this pure enjoyment has been established. For Pianists I will also introduce some basic composition.
For non beginners (or if I have been teaching a pupil for a while) I like to introduce other music styles along side the traditional training. As well as classical music I also play jazz piano and jazz violin so I will introduce some elements of this in order to broaden their musical language later on (especially if they express boredom or disinterest towards a classical training).
All in all my approach is about establishing a core passion and enjoyment for music then adding discipline to this core enjoyment when needed.
