Personal Description:

I have been performing since the age of 6 in Orchestras, Chamber Ensembles and as a soloist. I am currently playing in the Bromley Symphony Orchestra which I joined in 2013 and where I was quickly promoted to principal second violinist in 2014. I have been a member of the Bromley Symphony Players since 2015 where I have played as a soloist. I also play with various music ensembles and have guested for other orchestras and theatre companies. Furthermore a friend of mine and I give drama lessons added with music and movement to children aged 3 to 14.

Tutoring Experience:

I hold a degree in violin teaching and chamber music. I have 4 years experience of teaching violin and I have taught up to grade VIII. Whilst teaching in Hungary I gave one-on-one lessons to children aged 6 to 16 in a specialist music school and in the UK I have taught adults privately.

Tutoring Approach:

I give lessons, that combine violin practice, music theory and correct physical approach to playing. My goal is to teach my students to use the body correctly when playing the violin. I do this using Alexander technique, which teaches you approaches to playing the violin which reduce strain on the body and avoid injuries. This ensures your violin playing is more comfortable and therefore more enjoyable. I use Kodaly method which improves your understanding of music and your sight-reading skills. The Kodaly method is a well-established approach which combines music theory and practice to prove a rounded musical education. Music theory is taught in practical terms using the pieces being studied.
