Violin, Viola, Guitar, Keyboards, Composition/music theory Classical, Folk, Improvisation, , NOW RUNNING SKYPE AND ZOOM LESSONS, , I am a committed and patient tutor with a long and broad experience in the music business. I believe that teaching should be carefully tailored to the needs of each individual student. , , Firstly, the lessons must be enjoyable for both teacher and student, in a working atmosphere where the student feels confident and relaxed. I am able to help students progress in any aspect of musical study whether it be preparation for grade exams, Orchestra or band auditions, inclusion in folk music sessions/ceilidhs, music college entry requirements, sight reading, technique, improvisation and aural skills, or simple playing for fun and personal satisfaction! , , Learning to play any instrument is a fantastic thing, both rewarding and challenging in equal measure. I like to help students build their self-confidence, enthusiasm and determination through positive nurturing and guidance. , , Additional tutor Info --- , , Having worked for many music education establishments over the years, I have a strong foundation in classical based violin and viola teaching & performance (currently viola player and resident composer for the Oxford Proms Orchestra.) I have also enjoyed a long career in folk fiddle / electric violin styles, (playing in contemporary folk bands 'Finality Jack' and 'Boldwood') with festival and touring experience in the UK, Europe, and Scandinavia. In 2014 I gained a PhD in Electro-acoustic string composition and modern performance practices at Birmingham Conservatoire. , So whatever age or stage of musical development you may be, I welcome you... let's make music!
