Pedagogical Practice - Violin

When teaching the violin my approach is fairly unique as it incorporates not only violinistic influences, but pulls from the wider musical and cultural world we live in. I also frequently employ research from other disciplines such as psychology, anatomy, and physiology in my teaching. I do this as it is essential to understand how an individual functions on every level in order to deliver content in an inspiring and relatable way as well as imparting knowledge which will be completely relevant to them. This methodology I have been practicing in my studio for over 10 years with the achievements of students in my care over that time proving its success.

I aim to set my students up with both a substantial technical facility and a high level of musical understanding. As mentioned on the teaching practice page, I am a huge advocate of teaching not only how, but why something is the way it is. This is particularly applicable to violin tuition as so much of what we do requires a detailed understanding of how muscles and joints function to facilitate refined technique. Through this I also encourage deep musical knowledge which allows students to truly understand the music they play and develop interpretive skills of their own. The end goal is enabling truly independent thought and impactful decision making in my students.

Whilst quality is at the core of what I offer I ensure my studio is also a welcoming environment where curiosity and expressing oneself is highly encouraged. Discussion of student’s interests, both musically and of the wider world, I consider to be vitally important and allow me to truly understand the people I work with. This I use to tailor my lessons to the individual, broaden knowledge in areas of interest, and encourage truly unique artistry no matter the background or level of a student.

i am also a believer in building as ‘complete’ a musician as possible and make sure to interweave other related musical matters into my teaching. As a result I frequently recommend articles of interest and historically significant recordings to my students to encourage learning and the cultivation of new specialist interests.

If you are interested in studying with me then please do get in contact so we can explore our options of working together and arrange an initial consultation lesson.


Violin Lessons

For me my students are an absolute priority and therefore I endeavour to be as accommodating as possible when scheduling lessons. As a result my teaching schedule is flexible with tuition available throughout the week.
Please get in contact to discuss further details.


Aural and Theory Training

I also offer both intensive courses and longer term study plans dedicated to more academic and analytical training. These are essential to expand understanding and musicianship. These classes are often taken to work towards Theory and Aural exams, however I am equally happy to work with students simply looking to further their knowledge.

Chamber Music Coaching

As an in demand performer of chamber music I am able to give unique advice and insights into this wonderful art and its functioning. These sessions are aimed at ensembles involving strings and strings with piano.
