Personal Description:

Richard **Removed By Admin**has travelled worldwide as a violinist-educator, He is a Fellow of Trinity College London and was Head of Strings at Wellington College, King's Canterbury, and The University of Reading (his quartet, the Navarra, held the first British Telecom Residency there and toured South America).

He has taught at universities as diverse as Oxford, Cairo and Wits Johannesburg and is a Naxos solo artist. His recordings of Russian chamber music, with Vovka Ashkenazy, were rated '5-stars' by Classic CD magazine.

There have been some interesting concerto appearances: at the Eurostar Opening Ceremonies he played Vivaldi's Four Seasons on both sides of the Channel (although not at the same time!).

He has led London and overseas orchestras, most notably the SABC National Symphony in the 90s, (He emigrated to take-up the post). They were a busy broadcasting orchestra, but Richard was most proud of the Outreach work for 'the new South Africa'.

Tutoring Experience:

Richard **Removed By Admin**has over 30 years teaching experience as head of strings in schools, colleges, universities and Local Education Authorities throughout the Uk. At the top of his profession as a performer and educator he has taught pupils of all ages and all abilities.
He is also currently the strings consultant and Director of Celtic Roots Community Music Academy, and Merseyside Maestros, a specialist strings school based on the Wirral

Tutoring Approach:

'Style and a relaxed command of his instrument'

[Daily Telegraph]

Richard offers a wide range of individual and group tution to string players of all ages and levels.



Whether you have a pre-school aged child and understand how important an early start is in String Playing, or are a music lover looking for fresh social avenues, we have the instrument, teacher or ensemble for you!



Richard is particularly adept at adding music-making to the social calendars of both enterprising four year olds, and of those somewhat older, who are perhaps looking to pick up where they left off!



Our Thursday morning Ceilidh meeting (which features a wide range of instrumentalists) takes place in tandem with individual lessons, and our pre school Merseyside Mini Maestros music groups are already a popular focus of young childrens' weekly activities, all the time developing core foundation skills.



Adults and children alike appear in public at a variety of functions throughout the year: recent venues have included Eton Hall Cheshire, The Lady Lever Art Gallery and Thornton Hough's annual Music Festival: our seasonal partying aside, we find ensemble playing particularly enriching!
