Personal Message
I'm an enthusiastic violinist, my ultimate aim is to make people happy through and with music. I'm an inspiring tutor and a charismatic performer. Classical foundation, a passion for Gypsy music, and a holistic approach to teaching...
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the violin, and various styles and subjects with it. The most important for players on any level and style is a grounded technical foundation, which includes smooth bowing and tidy pitch. I teach with an holistic approach, including elements of Alexander technique and other alternative methods to achieve playing with 'physical ease' (specially important to prevent RSI).

I teach classical violin to advanced level, including exam preparation on all levels. Moreover I'm known as a specialist for Eastern European and Balkan Gypsy styles. I also teach basic improvisation, and have some repertoire of folk music from Britain and around the globe.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I hold a performance and tutor's degree for classical violin from the Leopold Mozart Konservatorium in Augsburg/Germany. Afterwards I graduated from a post-grad course in jazz. My degrees include Music theory, conducting, composition, piano and singing.
What kind of experience do you have?
24 years experience in teaching the violin, mostly one-to-one. I taught all ages and levels, mostly private students, but also at some institutes and schools in Germany and the UK.

15 years of teaching workshops and masterclasses for Gypsy music, improvisation, ensemble playing and music interpretation around the UK.
How much do you charge?
I charge £35 for regular weekly lessons of 60 min. For 45 min the fee is £27, for 30 min £20. For one-off 60 min lessons the fee is £40. I also can give lessons for groups, please contact me for the precise fees.
Where do you teach?
I teach from my home in Homerton E5. It is easy to reach from Islington, Camden, Hackney and Stratford via the overground. As an exception I can travel to the student's home, however, I will charge extra for this service.
When are you available?
I teach on Mon and Tuesday daytime and evening, Wednesday daytime and I have a couple of weekend spots available.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach students from 3 years to any age (I had students who started with 75, and plyed 3 years later little violin concertos...).
I teach beginners and up to Grade 8. In Gypsy and Balkan styles I teach up to professional level.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare students for all grade exams. I prepare Music students for world music degrees.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
I'm a member of the Musicians Union.
Where and with whom did you train?
Leopold Mozart Konservatorium - Classical degree. Professor Bernhard Tluck
Richard Straus Konservatorium - Jazz post-grad. Tutor: Joerg Widmoser
Masterclasses with Isabella Petrosjan
Gypsy Violin: Caliu/Taraf de Haidouks, Tcha Limberger, Winny Mathias
Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently I teach a couple of young people (8-13 years) of beginner and intermediate level. We are working on improving technique, preparing for exams, and having great joy to play various kinds of music. I also have the occasional advanced student who I'm coaching on playing with ease - can be avoided by playing without tension, and one's level can be improved immensely by playing dynamically WITH your body, rather then forcing it to play fast and complicated patterns. The last type of students are intermediate and advanced players who come specifically for Eastern European and Balkan Gypsy music...
Do you have a personal message for students?
1) You can start learning the violin at any age - there is no being 'too old' not even with 70...
2) When learning the violin, always keep in mind that the joy of making music for you and for the people who listen to you is so much more important than playing the right notes!
