Personal Description:

ONLINE LESSONS AVAILABLE. Sarah is a violinist who gained a Distinction in her master's degree, at the Royal Academy of Music. Sarah graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a First-Class Honours degree.

Musical education is something that Sarah is passionate about and she has participated in youth and dementia wellbeing projects with the Manchester Camerata. Sarah has gone onto participate in workshops in numerous schools and communities, including the City Literary Institute, Learning Disabilities Education Centre. She was a trainee at the Stroud Green Festival and has co-organised charity concerts, raising money for The Fund for Assistance in Haiti.

In 2017 Sarah gained a place on the Manchester Camerata’s prestigious ‘Professional Experience Scheme’, and she now plays professionally with them as well as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Sarah appeared as one of the soloists with the Manson Ensemble and London Sinfonietta at the Royal Festival Hall. During her time at RNCM she led the Symphony Orchestras and Chamber Orchestra under the tutelage of Sir Mark Elder, as well as participating in the Hallé scheme. Orchestral appearances also include playing at the BBC Proms with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and with the RAM and Julliard School.

An active chamber musician, Sarah has been lucky to work closely with current composers. Highlights include working with composer Emily Howard on ‘The Music of Proof’ and giving the UK premiere of Andriessen’s ‘Bach Prelude in B flat’ Quartet with The Mathias Quartet. The quartet represented the RNCM at the Cavatina Intercollegiate Competition and Leicester International Music Festival masterclasses. Sarah and her quartet have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s documentary.

Sarah made her concerto debut aged 12, and has performed Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 and Mozart Concerto No. 3 with the Guildford Youth Symphony Orchestra. She has been broadcast playing solo Bach at Dartington International Festival.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught individual lessons in violin and piano, given practise lessons, coached chamber music groups, and accompanied and coached children's choirs. I have given group lessons in music theory as well as helping with GCSE and A level music. I love teaching a wide-range of pupils, from beginners to advanced musicians, aged 4-80. I often participate in workshops in schools and community groups, working with toddlers, youth orchestras, dementia patients, and in SEND settings.

Current pupil goals include;

GCSE performance/ academic help
ABRSM Violin & Piano Grades 1-8
Beginner adults and children

Tutoring Approach:
