Why have lessons with me?
The million dollar question...... choosing a teacher should be more like wine tasting, try a few before you commit to anything because we are all different!

I've played violin since I was about 8, when I was 17 I realised something was wrong. I had had a lot of teachers over the years and looking back the things they 'forgot' to teach me left my playing rigid and stuck in the 'beginner' stage. So what did I do? I got a new teacher! Since then I have gone from feeling like a 'beginner' to a 'professional' musician and feel armed with the necessary skills to help you advance and feel happier with your music.

I aim to help my pupils improve not only technique and timbre but also work on musicianship skills such as aural learning, improvisation and theory. Of course, all this is subject to your preferences!
