I am an American living in the North Shields/Newcastle area and have been playing violin since the age of six. I have over ten years of experience performing in various settings including orchestral, chamber, and soloing as a freelance violinist in Los Angeles.

I have five years of teaching experience to students of all levels and ages and will work closely with you to achieve your goal, whether it is to obtain an ABRSM qualification or just to play for fun as a hobby. I am keen to involve the student in selecting repertoire because I believe that you should be invested in your practice and improvement. Aside from the performance aspect of violin, I value music theory, music appreciation, and ear (aural) training. I consider all of these factors vital to the development of any musician. I will also arrange performance opportunities for you as appropriate.

Lessons can take place either in my studio in North Shields (I am very close to both Tynemouth and North Shields metro stations), or depending on your circumstance, I am happy to travel to you (I may ask for a nominal transportation fee). I am able to travel as far as Newcastle City Centre or Durham.

My fees start at £10 for 30 minutes and £20 for one hour. It is also possible to have lessons for 1 hour and 30 minutes for £30 if you would like to include some time specifically for theory and ear training. If you pay via bank transfer for a monthly block of lessons in advance (5 lessons) I can offer a £5 discount off the total. Group lessons of up to 3 students are also available and I can coach chamber groups.

If you would like to cancel a lesson, I would ask that you please contact me at least 24 hours in advance via phone or e-mail.

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and am able to give lessons in Mandarin if desired. I welcome students of all ages. I ask that students come with their own instruments, but if you would like help selecting one, I would be more than happy to assist you.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with questions or lesson queries.
