Hi everyone, My name is Rosemary & I'm a professional violin teacher based in Liverpool offering high quality lessons to students of all ages.

I understand that all students have different goals & different ideas when it comes to learning to play. My lesson plan will be built around the songs you enjoy, the areas you want to improve as well as a solid backing of musical theory so that you can both read and understand what you're playing.

My Lessons

Mobile Lessons Available

I like to offer my students plenty of options when it comes to learning. Although I do teach from home, I can also travel to your home in Liverpool for our lessons together. I think that feeling comfortable whilst learning is key to making good progress when learning a new instrument. Learning to play the violin isn't easy and if a student feels more comfortable learning from their own home then this is something that I would recommend.

As well as helping improve your playing. I can also help you build confidence in yourself and your ability. I have done this countless times with other students and even to the point where many of my students have gone on to be professional players. I will help you gain confidence in your own ability and help you get to the stage where you feel comfortable playing in front of others which i understand, is really not easy to begin with.

Prices:


£17.50 per 1/2 hour
£35 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I welcome both beginners and advanced learners to take my lessons. I will make sure my lessons are built around you and at a pace that matches your ability level.

My Experience as a Teacher

When I was ten years old, I was taken to the theatre to watch a group of Romanian musicians and I was fascinated by the sight and sound of the violinist. A year later I began receiving violin lessons at my secondary school playing my grandfathers violin. By the time I was seventeen, I had performed in a youth orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, London and in Bermuda.

At eighteen I gained a place on the graduate course at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. There I studied violin, piano and composition as the main elements of that course where I obtained a degree in Music. I went on to Manchester to study for a certicate in education enabling me to become a qualified teacher.

I have taught in many schools as a peripatetic strings teacher for various local authority music services throughout the Northwest. I taught the violin and viola at Birkenhead School for several years and I taught at two private schools in Liverpool.
