Biography

I am a professional violinist. I studied with Rodney Friend and Hugh Bean at the Royal College of Music where I gained Dips. RCM Performer and Teacher.



Alongside my playing career, I have 25 years teaching experience. I've taught for the Croydon Music Service, the Hertfordshire Music Service and the Birmingham Junior Conservatoire. I've also taken part in projects for Keystage 1,2 and 3 through performances with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Many of my pupils have gone on to enjoy making music at an amateur and professional level.



I strongly believe music is for everyone regardless of background, culture or status. I'd like to offer people from all walks of life the opportunity to learn and enjoy music making.



I not only put emphasis on teaching pupils how to play the violin but I also focus on and incorporate history of music, aural and theory so that students gain a complete and rounded approach to music and the violin.



For beginners and younger pupils, I encourage parental participation in my lessons. ABRSM examinations will be followed where appropriate. I also prepare students for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, 11 Plus entrance Exams and Advanced and Diploma levels.



For more advanced students, consultation lessons are available for technical problems such as vibrato and bow technique.



I have a CRB Certificate which is available for inspection upon request.
