I am a fiddler based near Cambridge and have been playing since I was a small child. I am a relaxed and friendly tutor who will tailor your experience to your needs and interests. My background is in Classical music but I now favour genres including Old Time, Irish, Cajun and Scandinavian.

I teach both adults and children folk fiddle and am keen to teach whatever you want to learn.

I am a Speech and Language Therapist and therefore have taught and worked with people with difficulties such as Selective Mutism, Autism and Down's Syndrome. I am currently teaching a girl with moderate hearing loss to play the fiddle!

I want to make playing the violin FUN. I have my grades 1-6 but lost my passion for the violin in the stress of playing to pass exams. I have met a lot of people who feel the same. As a result I am passionate about students enjoying their experience of playing as this means they are more likely to continue! I don't shy away from music theory and technique as I believe these are fundamental to making progress - I just don't put my students through exams. How wonderful would it be to play because you love your instrument and what you can play on it rather than because you have to pass an exam?
