Instruments: Violin
Ability Levels: Intermediate to Advanced


I offer violin tuition to children and adults of grade 6 standard up to and including university level.
Lessons are available on a weekly basis teaching from my home and vary in length from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on your ability.

I started playing the violin when I was 3 and quickly progressed through the Suzuki method attaining my grade 8 by the age of 12. I like to use some of the repertoire from the Suzuki discipline in my teaching but I am not in the strictest sense a Suzuki tutor.
I attained my Bachelor of Music degree from the Royal Northern College of Music in 2005 and passed with first class honours.
I am a violinist in the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and the principal second violin of the Northern Chamber Orchestra. I have been teaching violin at Cheadle Hulme School for the last ten years.

Whether you are a looking to get into music college, work towards your grade 8 or an amateur looking to improve your violin technique, I may be the teacher for you. I am passionate about music, and an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher.
