I am currently studying for a Masters in Violin Performance (MMus) at Trinity College of Music, having graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Music from King's College London in 2009. I have been playing the violin for 17 years and the piano for 13 years, and I've had considerable experience teaching violin, piano and music theory to children and adults. I'm a very patient, reliable and friendly teacher and I am happy to teach all ages and abilities. I aim to make my lessons as fun and enjoyable as possible, whilst ensuring I give my pupils a good technical and musical foundation from the very first lesson.
I teach from my home in Baldock, and have pupils from nearby towns (Letchworth, Stevenage, Hitchin) learning with me. Parents are welcome to sit in another room if they wish to wait while the student has their lesson.
I also teach in London as I am based in Greenwich - please contact me for information about my teaching in London.
