Instruments: Violin

Genre/Style(s): Classical
Gypsy Jazz
Ability Levels: Beginners to Intermediate


Iím a highly experienced Violinist, specialising in Classical and Jazz. Very knowledgeable in both the theoretical side of music and composition, and the practical aspects of playing with good technique and precision.

I believe, above all, that playing music should be enjoyable. To have fun in both learning and performance, but to play with precision and good technique is what really matters!

For beginners:
I will help nurture a growing, in depth, musical understanding. It is important to get into the fun bit - playing - as soon as possible, but there are fundamental technical aspects which must be absolutely cemented. I cater my approach to each student and choose repertoire and technical excersises appropriately. Iím also fully aware that not everybody wants to make music their career so will cater my approach to the individual.

For intermediate players:
I expand on the knowledge already held, and Analyse your playing in order to find areas which can be improved if necessary. This could relate to playing technique, musical interpretation or theoretical understanding. An amount of time will always be spent playing music together/duets! Especially for Jazz students.

I teach beginner Piano, with both Classical and/or Jazz pathways.

I teach beginner theory, with both Classical and/or Jazz pathways.

I am also proficient at tutoring jazz - or free - improvisation on any instrument.
