I'm an experienced tutor of violin and piano, teaching classical, pop and traditional Irish music (fiddle).

Lessons with me are focused around developing both musicianship and technique, and these concepts are explored in detail. My aim is to help students optimize their talent in as short a time possible. Lessons in both classical violin or traditional Irish fiddle playing involve development of the left and right hand techniques. Lessons in pop piano music will have a heavy focus on understanding chords/harmony. I assess each student as an individual and tailor a bespoke approach to nurture their abilities.

Skype/Zoom lessons are available.

I am based in Forest Hill, London. Lessons are normally done at students' houses, but occasionally can be facilitated at my address.

Travel expenses apply.
