As a professional violinist Deirdre has performed and recorded worldwide with top international musicians. After teaching the violin for over 30 years at some of the world's best Universities and Academies she is now based in the North West teaching the violin at Chetham's School of Music and the Royal Northern School of Music Juniors in Manchester.

Private students travel from all over the North West of England and the Lake District for individual violin or viola lessons and chamber music coaching at her home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

While regular weekly or two-weekly violin lessons suit most children, many local amateur musicians book their coaching sessions whenever they want help with particular technical challenges or professional tips on orchestral and chamber music repertoire.

All ages and abilities are welcome. Lessons are adapted to the individual needs of each student. They vary in length from about 30 minutes for a child beginner to 60 minutes for an improver or adult.

Whatever your goal on the violin - passing grade exams, getting into an orchestra and enjoying the social side of music-making or just the delight of discovering new skills - high quality tuition can make a huge difference to the outcome.

Deirdre's students frequently achieve distinction in their grade exams and have won numerous prizes in local competitions including the Jim Noble Award at the Mary Wakefield Westmorland Festival. Many of her former students are now professional musicians themselves in top orchestras and chamber music groups around the world.
