The Violin/Viola is my second instrument and so I only teach it from beginners and to Grade 5 level.
I don't use a 'one-size fits all' approach to lessons - I get to know a pupil and then find the way that most suits them. The most important thing is to make sure lessons are enjoyable and you feel your goals are being achieved.
You can learn to play using any style of music, so we can choose from pop songs, folk tunes, musicals and classical music - or a mixture. I can find or make arrangements to suit your current level.
I prefer to teach music reading at the same time as the practical playing skills because this will ultimately help you to become an independent learner who doesn't have to rely on a teacher to help you play a new piece.
I also enjoy teaching people of every age - from age 5 to age 90! So if you want to learn with someone who will build a relationship with you and find the best way to help you achieve your goals in a relaxed yet professional way, then contact me for a chat and to arrange a free trial lesson.
