Information About Paul - York teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
I am a professional violinist, active as a performer throughout the UK and abroad. Brought up in Toulouse, as a young student I gained my musical education at Toulouse Conservatoire, before completing my Bachelors and Post-Graduate degrees at the Royal College of Music in London. Since graduating, I have been working as a performer and teacher; recent performances have included performing as a soloist at Notre Dame de France in Leicester Square, London, and a tour with Regent's Opera performing as the only violinist in a chamber version of Rossini's Barber of Seville.
I have been teaching for six years in England and three years in France; privately, employed and on a self-employed peripatetic basis. My students have included children from both primary and secondary schools and adults - I am experienced in teaching beginners and preparing students for ABRSM exams (for which last year all of my students achieved distinction), but I am also able to teach a large repertoire for post-Grade 8/diploma and more advanced students, from Bach to contemporary composers, due to my own studies and experience as a concert violinist.
I can teach according to a syllabus (e.g. ABRSM) or following various methods if desired, such as Suzuki or Sevcik, and I can also teach the French musical method, solfège, in which I have a diploma from the Toulouse Conservatoire.
I take the improvement of my students very seriously and take great care to tailor my lessons to the different ambitions and goals of each student, whether that be a desire for a career in music or to play the violin as a hobby. With this in mind I have always sought to build a strong and positive relationship with parents as well as with students in order to create the best environment for myself and for the students.
