Kids love music – It’s a big part of their lives. So why do most kids HATE violin lessons? After many years of teaching kids, I’ve started to figure out why…
Most kids view violin lessons as “just more homework,” and another task to “check off the list” along with extracurricular activities, homework, MORE homework and family obligations.
Why!?!? What went wrong?!?!
Sadly, most violin classes focus on FACTS and very little on creativity, music appreciation, or enjoyment.
It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you tap into a child’s natural curiosity and sense of exploration. By encouraging children to have fun and enjoy the violin, I remove the common roadblocks that prevent them from reaching their full potential.
I have made it my personal mission to innovate and put creativity, exploration, and fun into my students’ private violin lessons. I always teach by demonstration! Lots of playing!

My students can:

- Play easy songs specially composed for their level within a month of teaching. Kids love things that feel easy!

- Show perfect violin posture from day one.

- Learn simple sight reading and steady rhythm from the end of the second lesson so that they could play any type of music.

- Review and retain all their lessons through the use of games and writing their own music (even my beginners!)

- Get all the benefits that science has shown violin instruction provides including increased academic performance, higher IQs, etc. And to top it off, this is all done in an encouraging and positive environment.


Upon reaching an intermediate or advantage level of skill, students have new options to explore. Students have the option to pick their own music: Disney songs, pop songs, radio songs, and movie songs. You name it – If you want to learn it, I’ll teach it to you.

If you are a serious student, we can explore the world of ABRSM exams….



About me.

My name is Paula Martinez and I am a professional violinist based in W14 in London. My violin training started at an early age in Spain. In my teens, I was offered a place to study at the Royal College of Music in London immediately after my audition was finished. After my studies in London came to the end, I had my higher education training at Manhattan School of Music in New York, New England Conservatory in Boston and Harvard University. After this truly amazing learning experience, I settled back in London. I have more than 17 year experience teaching children from 5 till 18 years old. I also have always enjoyed performing as a soloist or playing in orchestras like London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra or City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, Queen Elisabeth Hall as well as Paris Radio France, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Madrid National Auditorium to name a few.
