My Lessons

Learning an Instrument Is Important

I tend to believe in a more thorough grounding in one instrument, as opposed to learning lots of instruments at a low level. I also believe that a solid musical upbringing or education is crucial for the social, mental and physical progression of children and adults.

Many scientific studies have proven the benefits to learning an instrument. Academically, those children who do learn instruments are proven to achieve better grades.

My Experience as a Teacher

I graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff in August 2017, where I spent two years studying full-time for a Masters of Music in Solo Performance (violin). This course involved extensive orchestral, solo and chamber music performance. I took lessons with Lowri Porter (co-principal violinist for the Welsh National Opera) and have performed across the UK and worldwide, often in iconic venues with world-class conductors. Prior to RWCMD, I also spent 3 years studying full-time for a BA (Hons) music degree from the University of Southampton.

Since the conclusion of my postgraduate studies at this prestigious National Conservatoire, I have worked as an upper strings teacher for Berkshire Maestros, one of the UK's leading music services and have also performed professionally with an orchestra in Switzerland.

I currently work part-time as a violin tutor for Surrey Arts (an outstanding music hub) and also undertake self-employed teaching in this county. I do also undertake some teaching in Hampshire which is my original home county, where I also spend a lot of time performing with the Havant Symphony Orchestra, Havant Chamber Orchestra and the Solent Symphony orchestra.

More About My Lessons

In lessons, I will often play along with the pupil to further the experience and believe in a holistic approach involving fun games and activities. Being trained to a Masters/Postgraduate level, I am comfortable teaching advanced level string technique and am aware of how a good technique can make playing your instrument easier.

Teaching poor technique at an early stage can take years of hard work to undo. I do not advocate exams as the one and only route for progression – I will always encourage a pupil to enjoy playing as many different styles and genres of music as possible.

There is more, much more to instrumental learning than exams alone. I am happy to arrange concerts for pupils who would like further opportunity to perform.

I can help you to

I like to make sure my lessons are always enjoyable and exciting for all of my students. I like to encourage taking music seriously and playing with other musicians. Playing together in this way is hugely beneficial for all learners, and I personally have always played in a variety of orchestras/ensembles throughout the course of my musical education.
