I have taught and tutored children aged 6-13 on various music courses around London and Suffolk.

I teach both violin and viola privately.

Which ages and levels do you teach?
Any age!

Beginners to advanced ! My teaching varies on the individual, quite recently I have
been teaching beginners the Suzuki method, which I find is eye opening for both pupil and myself.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I work with my pupils to prepare grades, but this is not always the case for some pupils who would just like to work on pieces and technique.
Grades are optional.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Where and with whom did you train?
I trained in the top music school Wells Cathedral School up to sixth form and then spent a year in Lyon Conservatoire.

I studied with Susie Meszaros at the Royal College of Music. Now I am working towards my Masters of Performance with renowned violist Yuko Inuoe at the Royal Academy of music.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Recently, two of my violin pupils (sisters) have taken their grade 2 and 4, they were both very pleased with how they performed. I coached them to the highest level for their exams. Another one of my pupils is working towards grade 4, whilst my viola pupil is on grade 6 and other viola pupil is starting grade 1!
As you can see I can teach beginners to advanced at any age. My oldest pupil, Paul, 35 years old, took up violin and is improving vastly!
Do you have a personal message for students?
I hope I can be what you are looking for in a violin or viola teacher. I make our lessons
fun, challenging and informative. If you are passionate about making music then I believe I can offer you a fantastic start to your musical journey, as well as helping towards mastering your instrument.
