Information About Roland - Bristol teacher
I am a Professional Violinist married to a Professional Cellist, in my 40s.
I hold a Performers' Diploma in Violin Playing, and freelanced in Europe for around 20 years before deciding to settle into teaching.
I have given recitals, played with Chamber Groups, String Orchestras, and Symphony Orchestras performing in prestigious venues mainly in Italy and Switzerland,
I really enjoy teaching, and am thrilled when my students catch the bug for playing, and simply cannot get enough!
I trained with some good teachers; David Stone, Emmanuel Hurwitz, Manoug Parikian, Paolo Borciani, Stojian Kalchev, Alexei Mikhlin (both Queen Elizabeth Competition Prize Winners)
I also travelled to St Petersburg for training, which is where my main schooling is from.
I have taught on International String Courses and can teach many different levels, including etudes by Mazas, Kreutzer, Rode, Dont and Wieniawski
Concerti by Viotti, DeBeriot, Komarowski and Myaskovsky.
Technique and music, hand in hand… I like to balance the two elements, trying to develop both in a natural and balanced way.
I am easy going & down to Earth, but I can also be quite frank and honest… my web site has more information
