My Mission

Fun and Informative Lessons

I believe that learning any instrument should be a fun experience. I take great pride in making my lessons as relaxed and fun as they can be, all the while still being jam packed full of information. I want you to leave each of our lessons feeling excited about what you've just learnt, so that you feel motivated and driven to go and practice in between the sessions.

This allows you to not only improve and develop your skills as a musician and as a violin player, but also allows you to enjoy the journey as we go. In my experience students tend to retain more information and learn better when in a fun and comfortable environment. All students want and love different things about music so I will always make sure to get to know you so I can tailor our lessons to suit you and your individual needs.

My Lessons

Students of all Ages and Abilities Welcome

Learning an instrument is something that I feel can be done at any age. It's never really too early or too late to get started, with the right training and guidance I truly believe it's something that anybody can do. I'm very passionate about music in general but especially the violin and I take great pride in sharing this passion with my students.

No matter if you have never played a violin before, or if you have been playing for years and just want to move on to that next level, the lessons I provide are suitable for any student from 4+. In my lessons we will always be studying and working with songs/artists that you enjoy the most, as I find this is a great way to help keep you motivated while practising on your instrument.

Prices:


£25 per 1/2 hour
£33 per 3/4 of hour
£42 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I think that it's important for any teacher to be flexible and to be able to provide lessons for all students no matter their ability. I take great pride in offering violins lessons that are suitable for anyone, no matter what part of your musical journey you are at. I understand that all musicians will have different aims and goals so I'll always make an effort to get to know you and will adapt my lesson plans and teaching style to suit your current level.

My Experience as a Teacher

I first began teaching professionally in 2009, and soon discovered that it was a joy to share the knowledge I acquired through my own practice and education with my students. I teach in both the traditional method and the Suzuki Method, in which I was recently certified through the British Suzuki Music Association in Birmingham.

I have taught violin in a wide range of settings, including private lessons, group classes, orchestral sectionals, and chamber music coaching. It has been inspiring for me to watch my students improve at the violin and become curious about the process of practicing, learning, and becoming independent musicians.

One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is getting to know an individual’s learning style, and tailoring the lessons to fit the needs and goals of the student. I teach students of all ages and abilities, from 3 year old beginners, to advanced teenagers, to adults who are looking to dust off their musical abilities.

More About My Lessons

This, in combination with my pedagogical training and certification in the Suzuki Method make me highly qualified to teach violinists of all ages, especially total beginners who want to achieve a solid technical foundation from day one.

I believe that once students have a solid technical foundation, they have the freedom to play any type of music they want, whether it’s a favorite pop song on the radio, an unaccompanied Bach sonata, or a classic fiddle tune. Students who decide to take lessons with Julia can expect to learn music through student-centered lessons in a welcoming, encouraging, and nonjudgemental environment.

Learning an instrument is also a creative process and I like to focus a lot of attention on this is my lessons. I want you to have fun exploring music and finding your own sound as we go along. I have my own private studio where I teach many violin and viola students and I hope to build a practice of community music workshops for the general public.

Teacher Tips
Local Music Stores

Here is a list of local music stores for all your musical needs.

Music Shops in Oxfordshire

Oxford Violins, is located at 67 Banbury Road, Oxford, OX2 6PE and is a great music store that I usually recommend my students go to. While they are a little ways outside Oxford it is well worth the visit as they are really well suited to helping to young/beginner violinists. Over 50 years old, the store has helped many stringed instrument players over the years to find the right instrument for them. Their staff can helpfully assist on a wide range of questions that might have when purchasing your first instrument or in regard to how to correctly maintain it moving forward.
