    A lot of students think they'e not musical because their previous teacher advised them to give up. I can say right now that everyone has the ability and the potential, all it needs is some patient coaching from a committed tutor.

  • Age Doesn't Matter When Learning An Instrument

    Adria Viola Teacher (West Central London) Picture I believe that every child in the world should learn how to play a musical instrument in schools, because it is as important as maths or biology. But our society excludes that fact from our thoughts saying, “just gaining a little knowledge of music is enough”. As a consequence, all those kids...

    Lourenço Macedo Sampaio Viola Teacher (South West London) Picture Orchestral playing requires first and foremost discipline - especially inside a section (i.e. strings). It is a about letting go the individual for the sake of the whole. This has many difficult challenges in different aspects of orchestral playing such as the expressive interpretation, rhythm,...
  • The adventure of music

    Joshua W Hayward Viola Teacher (South West London) Picture I'm constantly stunned by the world of music... I play classical music, old composers (Beethoven, Bach ect.) and new.

    Alistair Vennart Viola Teacher (Manchester) Picture A Viola is an instrument that looks similar to the Violin. It is slightly larger, sounds slightly lower, and some complain that it is more difficult to play than the Violin, but for the most part, it is played in an identical way. The viola is truly the unsung hero of the string family. Its...
