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.
