Piano- Grade 8
Violin- Grade 8 (Distinction)
Beginners to Intermediate
I offer private tuition for both violin and piano for all ages. I have had success developing young violinists and pianists but also helping adults who want to rekindle music skills learned at a younger age. I am an ambassador of the Benedetti Sessions and have worked alongside young children to teenagers helping develop their musical skills.
I have a friendly, flexible approach and can help you prepare for exams, develop your technical skills or improve your playing for pleasure.
I will adapt lessons specifically to your needs and offer an approach that brings together the benefits of a conservatoire background with a flexibility and empathy that works particularly well with children or adults who may look for additional re-assurance with their playing.
I encourage creativity in individuals and believe music can bring many benefits in life. I would love to help you develop your own musical ability and share the joy of music.
