Tutoring Experience:

Violin and Voice - Up to Grade 8 ABRSM
Piano and theory - up to grade 5 ABRSM

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to music tuition is tailored to the individuals needs and their personal goals. Having studied and taught in multiple musical disciplines I have a working knowledge of teaching techniques based on age, level and instrument. I have taught up to ABRSM Grade 8 in both voice and violin, with my pupils achieving distinctions. I teach at piano studio Cardiff, where I teach piano and theory. I also have knowledge of the school curriculum, and can help students work their way toward exams, whether it be practical or folio.
