Personal Description:

Following tuition at Musica Kirklees in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Rebecca received a scholarship to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Rebecca studied with Head of Strings Dr. Louise Lansdown, Head of Chamber Music Robin Ireland and Lucy Nolan of the Eblana String Trio. In July 2017 she recieved a Bachelor of Music with Honours (First Class). Rebecca remained at the Conservatoire for a further year to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Performance. She will continue her studies this year on the Master's course at the Royal Northern College of Music.

A passionate orchestral player, Rebecca has performed in multiple orchestral projects, including the Conservatoire's Symphony Orchestra, and the CBSO Youth orchestra, of which she was principal violist. She has achieved a place on the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Training Scheme, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra Foyle Future Firsts Development Scheme. She is an extra player for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tutoring Experience:

Rebecca has taught extensively as a private violin and viola tutor. During her Undergraduate Degree she studied the major schools of Pedagogy, including Suzuki, Colourstrings, Dalcroze, Kodály and Alexander Technique. She was an Upper Strings Tutor for Sandwell Music and Arts Service, teaching one-to-one lessons in schools around West Bromwich, coaching young string ensembles and conducting the Mini Maestros junior string orchestra. She has also led workshops in SEN schools and care homes with her string quartet.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide one-to-one teaching in both Violin and Viola. All ages and abilities are welcome, whether you hope to study music at a higher level, are preparing for an exam or audition, are a new learner or simply looking to play for fun!

I endeavour to provide comprehensive, versatile and enjoyable tuition for upper-string players. During lessons we will focus on improving technique, developing music theory and aural skills, promoting freedom of movement/reducing muscular tension, historically informed performance practice, developing ensemble skills and improving confidence in performance contexts. Though I specialise in Classical music, I am happy to tailor lessons according to the interest of each of my students.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions! Initial consultation lessons will be half price. I look forward to hearing from you.
