Personal Description:

I've played the violin for over 20 years and studied Music for my BA at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London where I focussed on Klezmer, Eastern European and Indian music. I play regularly in bands across the UK covering a wide rang of styles such as gypsy jazz, klezmer, folk, bluegrass and North Indian music as well as classical.

I also play guitar and a variety of percussion instruments.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 4 years teaching experience both privately, in schools and for group classes. I taught for Leeds Violin School based at the Yorkshire College of Music and drama where students age ranged from 3 - 80. Now I teach privately as well as running community music groups aiming to make music more accessible to people from different backgrounds. For example I have run music groups for people with physical disabilities and currently run a weekly music group for a mental health charity in Leeds.

I have 100% pass rate for students taking ABRSM exams, many of whom achieved distinctions.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a fun and creative approach to teaching and try to tailor my lessons to the interests and needs of the student. I also provide a thorough approach to violin technique and posture. As a versatile player I can offer tuition in a range of styles including classical ABRSM grades, folk, klezmer, gypsy jazz and improvisation.
