Notes:

I am a very keen amateur violinist. Having enjoyed performing both by myself and in various ensembles (including the University of Sheffield Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra, and the National Youth Orchestra of Wales, as well as string and violin quartets) I would be delighted to share my love of music.

Although I have no previous teaching experience, I feel I have the relevant qualifications and enthusiasm to bring to lessons. I have previously learned with 5 different professional players which has given me huge perspective on the violin, and I'd like to bring this awareness to any future pupils. I've also explored a lot of repertoire from different composers and eras, and I'd love to help someone discover the kind of music they enjoy playing. Above all, I aim to provide students with an understanding of the technical requirements of the instrument, whilst ensuring this does not overshadow the musicality that should be encouraged when learning any instrument.

In my spare time I like listening to pop music (some of the charts, electropop, and singer-songwriter) and indie rock, and attend gigs as well as classical concerts.
