My Mission

Relaxed and Informative Lessons

Learning any instrument can sometimes be a very difficult task for anyone, as such I think it's really important that my lessons are kept as fun and relaxing as possible. I find that most students tend to learn better and remember more information when they are learning in relaxed and comfortable environment. I will always tailor my lesson plans to suit you as an individual.

My main teaching method is to teach you songs that you know and love by your favorite artists. I find that doing this helps to keep you motivated and driven when it comes to practising the material in between lessons. This not only allows you to grow and develop as a musician but gives you the reward of being able to play all of your favorite songs too. I feel this is a very crucial aspect when learning to play an instrument.

My Lessons

Lessons Tailored to You

I will always take the time to get to know you as an individual so I can adapt my teaching style and material to suit your specific musical goals and aims. I know we are all different and we all love and want different things from music so I will always do my best to provide lessons that you find fun and engaging, by teaching you songs and material relevant to you.

How you run these lessons is entirely up to you. Depending on your current playing ability together we will decide what you want from these lessons, identify your weaknesses and then work together to improve in those areas and push you to that next level. I will always be happy to play music that you enjoy as this helps keep you motivated and driven when practising in between lessons.

Prices:


£17 per 1/2 hour
£32 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am currently in my second year of teaching for the Glasgow City Council. We currently provide free music lessons for children in schools across the city. I actively teach students from as young as age 4 on the violin, piano and in singing. The lessons I offer are taken as either solo or group classes.

I have been teaching students how to play the violin privately for the last 9 years and in this time I have worked with students of all ages and backgrounds. Some students from as young as 4 years old all the way up to 70. I feel it's never really too early or too late to start learning a new instrument.

If taking exams is something that you are interested in, I have a great record of success and have put many of my students through the ABRSM and Trinity Exams. Having been able to work with so many different students has allowed me to provide flexible and varied lessons tailored to meet the specific needs of all of my students.

More About My Experience

I currently hold a distinction in my own ABRSM grade 8 certificate in piano, violin and singing. The skills I have obtained while studying for these exams has proven invaluable and allows me to cater for any student of any ability. I was fortunate enough to study at Chethams School of Music, Manchester.

The specialist and dedicated training I received while studying here taught me the skills and discipline I needed in order to become an active performing musician in the music industry. I then went on to gain a Bachelor of Music with Honours from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, in 2014.

In my lessons I like to try and offer as much insight and knowledge as I can when it comes to being a good violin player. This not only includes tips and tricks on how to improve on your instrument, but I also like to offer insight in to the world of musical theory and performance to help you also improve as a general all round musician too.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are currently charged at £17 per half hour & £32 per hour for all of my students.

I teach a wide range of ages starting from 4+. I have experience in teaching both children and adults & welcome everyone to learn with me.

You don't have to but for the best results I would recommend a lesson per week combined with plenty of home practice.
