Violin, viola and music theory teacher in Canterbury
I am a dedicated and experienced teacher based in Canterbury. My mission is to pass on my knowledge as a violinist and violist to develop musicianship, technique and of course a pure joy for music, in a rewarding and fun environment.
I'm lucky enough to have developed longstanding relationships with many of my students, some over many years, and I find it incredibly rewarding to watch them progress and find their unique musical voice.
I teach violin and viola from absolute beginner to grade 8/diploma level and beyond. I currently hold a 100% pass rate with ABRSM and Trinity exam boards, with many students achieving Merit or Distinction. I also offer music theory lessons. All ages welcome - I currently teach an age range between 5 years and 70 plus! It really is never too late to learn.
Whether the aim is to take music exams, improve posture, to play in an orchestra/ensemble or to achieve a first ever on-stage performance, I tailor every lesson to suit the individual's ambitions. I am also experienced with preparing students for scholarships and auditions, always incorporating music theory and aural skills into the lessons.
