We feel so honoured to have found Liz after our daughter expressed an interest in learning the violin five years ago. Liz embodies such a unique and charming mix of warmth, enthusiasm, positivity and patience - not to mention her talent as a violinist! She has been a true inspiration to Sofia, whose progression and dedication we are immensely proud of. Our experience has proven that it's not always easy to find a teacher who can build a positive and nurturing rapport with children, so we feel incredibly lucky to have found Liz and look forward to watching our daughter progress over the coming years.

Liz has been teaching Jonathan the violin since he was starting school. Liz is a great teacher with patience and humour who always supports Jonathan, even during weeks when practice has not been his number 1 priority. Jonathan has achieved well and this has been no doubt due to the structured and tailored lessons as well as reward which motivates him (stickers and positive encouragement!) Under Liz's tutoring Jonathan has achieved grade 4, been lead violin in the school's string group, won the school strings music competition and played in the National Prep School's Orchestra.

Mrs Holland has done a great job of bringing her teaching into online formats. This has meant that my daughter can continue her violin lessons during the pandemic, We've been able to arrange our screens so that Mrs Holland is still able to correct my daughter's technique, and she is even able to help her tune her violin each week. I'm sure that my daughter would not be motivated to practice without our weekly lessons so am grateful to Mrs Holland for making these special accommodations so rapidly.

‘Liz is a fantastic teacher, so incredibly calm and patient, and has a wonderful way with young children. Liz has adapted her teaching approach to suit the ideal learning style that works best for my daughter, and really understands how to motivate her and keep her focussed. Her passion for the violin is so apparent, and is so infectiously contagious that my daughter is fast-developing the same love for the instrument. Liz is full of praise and recognition, which is so encouraging and rewarding for a young child learning to play an instrument for the first time.’

Liz has been a fantastic teacher for Daisy. She is incredibly encouraging and seems to kow just the right thing to say or do to get the best from her students. Daisy's musical ability has developed so much since she started her lessons with Liz and I'm always surprised by how far she has come in a short space of time.

My daughter started learning to play the violin with Liz three years ago and hasn't looked back since. She's now working towards grade 6 and I can honestly say she's enjoyed every single lesson. Liz is an intuitive teacher who adapts her teaching style to make the lesson enjoyable whilst challenging and inspiring her student to do their very best. Her love for music is what she aims to pass on while teaching. She's a kind, warm and wonderful teacher.

"My children have been having violin lessons for over eighteen months. Liz is passionate about the violin and a great teacher. I would recommend her as a teacher to anyone of any age wanting to learn the violin. She is highly motivating and excellent at building up my children's confidence and enthusiasm, not only for the violin but also music theory."
