A Winchester based violin teacher specialising in classical violin and folk fiddle.

I have played the violin for over 35 years, and trained under Gerhardt Dreschler and Ralph Shaw in the North West where I grew up. I have played in orchestras and ensembles, whilst at school and university, plus the Chester Philharmonic Orchestra. I currently teach a wide and varied range of students, from five years old to retired, and have a full pass rate for my students in the graded ABRSM exams, with a high percentage of distinctions.

Lessons are available during the day & evening from Monday to Friday, for students of all ages (5 years upwards) and abilities, tailored to suit each individual's requirements, whether it be working through exams or purely for enjoyment.

As an accomplished guitarist, singer and composer, I also teach guitar. This is generally in a more informal manner to those seeking to play mainly for enjoyment (although I do put students through the lower ABRSM grades where required).

I have an enhanced CRB check and am a member of the Musicians’ Union, through which I have public liability insurance. Endorsed by Kallikids, and references and testimonials can be available.

Darren lives in Twyford, just outside Winchester with his partner Avril.
