What kind of experience do you have?
I am a qualified teacher of music with twenty three years of experience, with fourteen years in middle-management supervising and leading two busy Music departments. My duties included the planning, delivering and monitoring of the music curriculum throughout the 11-18 age range, the management of visiting Instrumental tutors, rehearsing and directing numerous extra-curricular ensembles and activities. I graduated from the London College of Music with Honours. During my time there I gained all the major awards and I received the highest major honour offered by the college – Fellowship of the London College of Music. In 2002 I qualified as a Sound/Audio Engineer from the S.A.E. in London and since then, I have successfully used my knowledge and skills to provide new opportunities for students in Music and Music technology. During my studies I have been fortunate to have been involved in numerous orchestral, chamber music and recital performances, gaining valuable insight and instruction from inspiring violin tutors with experience in all three disciplines. I have been teaching the violin since 1992 and, where possible, I continue to perform.
