Notes:

I love teaching violin and sharing my passion for music with children. I currently teach for Lewisham Music Service, Wandsworth Music Service, Harrow Music Service and Every Child a Musician (in Newham). I have experience teaching 5-18 year olds at all levels from beginner to Grade 8, in individual, small group and occasionally whole class groups (in schools!). I have room for one or two more private pupils and particularly enjoy teaching one to one in a pupil's home, where they feel relaxed and we are able to focus on making the most progress possible in a fun and musical way.

I studied pedagogy at the Royal Northern College of Music, including Dalcroze method, Kodaly method, and the 2002 'A Common Approach'. I have since studied the Colourstrings system too. My teaching style is constantly evolving, and I am a member of the European String Teacher's Association, to ensure I am always at the forefront of new research and developments. I believe in teaching children music holistically, so a technical exercise for left hand fingers becomes also a chance to develop rhythm, a musical ear, and portray a musical character. I find this method keeps children engaged, enthusiastic, and keen to practice as well as fostering rapid technical development.

My own performing career is mainly orchestral - I studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Miranda Playfair, and now play with Outcry Ensemble, Arch Sinfonia, Melos Sinfonia, London Graduate Orchestra, Aleph Orchestra and many ensembles around London. I believe playing music with others is the biggest motivator for musical progress and I encourage all my pupils to join ensembles as early as possible ( I can recommend local groups usually), I conduct two weekly children's orchestras myself.

I am happy to travel to homes in Crystal Palace.
