Lessons are £45/hour (£30/half hour), but fairly negotiable. Depending on Lockdown restrictions, I can meet outside or over video chat for consultation lessons.

About lessons:
While I keep a strict standard of technique, I like to address the interests of the pupil as well. I believe lessons should always have a balance of work and play.
I have performance and teaching experience in classical, jazz, folk, and fiddling.
Learning outcomes may include: reading fluency, music theory, improvisation, advanced violin/viola technique, listening skills, sightreading, etc.

About me:
I come from a family of educators, so teaching is in my blood. I love to unlock the unique talents of every student, and I firmly believe there is more than one path to teaching and playing music.
As a freelancer I do a mix of things: performing, songwriting, teaching, recording, etc. I've played in jazz bands, folk bands, Mexican Mariachi bands, and more. I've soloed with symphonic orchestras and toured with chamber ensembles.
My 6-7 years of teaching experience includes all levels and ages, and I derive my methodology from multiple sources (Suzuki, Kodaly color strings, ABRSM, LRAM, etc.), so I'm fairly flexible and adaptable to each student.
