Personal Description:

I have been playing Violin for 20 years and I have played in various bands of different genres such as Folk/Rock, Klezmer, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical styles. My style of playing and teaching is eclectic and encompasses various styles taught and influenced by classical teachers, tutors at Leeds Music College and fellow band members and music sessions growing up.

I love collaborating with other musicians from different backgrounds and enjoy performing to audiences where I have performed with a dancer and story-teller producing classical and improvised work in schools, libraries, art galleries and festivals.

I currently teach online as a full time violin teacher where I have gained a lot of experience teaching students from all over the UK and beyond!

Tutoring Experience:

I can teach you how to play the violin from beginners up to intermedia**Contact Detail Removed**vel playing with personalised 1:1 coaching online, you will also receive audio/visual recordings to help with your practice!

As well as performance work, I have taught violin for 9 years teaching adults and children of all ages, preparing them for both exam syllabuses ABRSM and Trinity College London exams and gaining good results 100% pass rate! I predominantly teach online now which I believe allows me to offer more learning support to students via audio recordings, bite size help with practice. My students love this and it really helps them keep on track.

Tutoring Approach:

**I aim to inspire and instil confidence in all of my lessons and to promote a positive and focussed learning experience in all my lessons.

As well as learning the Classical syllabus students will learn how to read rhythms and maintain a beat. I believe timing is incredibly important to ensure a faster and secure progression with sight reading and performance delivery and my students are taught this from the first day.

My classes are upbeat and positive, I love sharing my musical knowledge and watching how learners progress through grades and discover new interests in other genres such as Jazz, European Folk, Pop and others. I aim to inspire and encourage, my approach is dynamic and I am able to keep my lessons engaging and informative.
