My Mission

Professional and High Quality Lessons

I have played the violin for many years and I absolutely love what I do. I have lived and worked as a violinist in many different countries and I am very excited to now be in a position to teach and work with my own students. I take great pride in using the skills I have developed over the years to provide the highest quality violin lessons that I can.

I am an Icelandic/British violinist living in London. I recently moved here to further my career as a violinist, chamber musician and teacher. I believe I am a flexible teacher who is able to work with all ages and levels and have experience with international communities and different cultures.

My Lessons

Students of All Ages Are Welcome

I am more than happy to teach students of all ages, no matter if you have never played a violin before or even if you have been playing for years. Having started to learn violin when I was very young myself, I feel it's never really too early or too late to start learning.

My lessons can also take place from the comfort of your own home as I am a mobile teacher. So depending on your location within London I am more than happy to travel to you for the duration of the lessons, which I find really helps people to learn and retain information being in a familiar and comfortable environment.

Prices:


£20 per 1/2 hour
£40 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I offer violin lessons that are suitable and catered for both beginner and advanced students. I will make a tailored lesson plan that suits your needs as an individual.

My Experience as a Teacher

I started playing the violin when I was very young and I am still just as passionate about music and performing my instrument to this day. I am a Graduate from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Bachelor of Music with honours. I set achievable goals and instil a sense of accomplishment in my students. Violin lessons will always focus on how to improve on a day to day basis and learning how to ultimately teach yourself.

I have teaching experience in a wide variety of different locations and settings. I have worked with and taught students in 1:1 lessons, group lessons, orchestral groups and others. I take pride in taking the time to get to know you personally and as such each lesson is tailored and adapted to the your individual personality, play style and musical tastes. I will always offer relaxed lessons that cater for you and your learning speed and patterns.

Should you choose to have violin lessons with me, I like to offer lessons that cover a wide range of topics. Not only can I give advice on instrument purchases and rentals but I also provide insight and help with good practise routines and techniques which is a service I run through WhatsApp. Students/parents may send a short practice video in which I will give short and concise practice advice up to once a day.

More About My Lessons

I'm a professional player who can help you improve all aspects of your playing including not only your physical playing techniques but also widening your theory knowledge and all round understanding as we go. I like to make sure my lessons are always as relaxed and as fun as I can make them. I take great pride in offering a comfortable learning environment for my students.

The lessons I provide are tailored to suit students of all ages and levels of experience. No worries whether you're just starting out on the violin, or if you've already been playing for a while and you're just looking to refine a specific aspect of your technique or working towards your next grade. Whatever stage you are at, together we can identify your weak areas and help you progress to that next level.

For the bulk of my lessons I am primarily a mobile teacher, so as long as you live within a reasonable distance from me I am more than happy to travel to you for our lessons to take place. This means you never have to leave the house, worry about traffic, parking, packing up your instrument or having to find the place. All lessons can be taken from the comfort of your own living room.

Music Shops in London

London obviously has a really diverse set of stores when it comes to music shops. Here, however, are some of my favourite violin based shops in London.

J P Guivier, This place has a great selection of violins on offer as well as some really friendly staff who will help you with anything you may need. They also offer repairs. You can find them on 99 Mortimer St, Marylebone, London W1W 7SX.

Hebberts, This is an independent Violin maker where you can even get something made to your own specifications. They have even worked with museums in the past sourcing instruments.

Bridgewood, are the last shop I will mention. This particular place specialises in selling second-hand instruments. If you are looking to pick up a great deal then this is the place to go.
