I offer weekly lessons of between 30 and 60 minutes at my home studio in Sherwood, NG5. Whether you are a beginner, working for Grade 8 or returning to lessons after a break, you can expect professional one-to-one instruction in a fully-customised and well-resourced learning environment.
Don’t worry if you have never played an instrument before, or if you feel you don’t understand the history or theory of music. These are all things you will pick up as we go along, and you may even be reading music within the first couple of weeks.
We will work across a range of styles with a variety of accompaniments (I play several instruments), and combine this with aural awareness, literacy and coordination skills to broaden both your repertoire and your versatility as a player.
If you are interested in ensemble playing I can advise you as to when would be a good time for you, and how you can find a suitable one. My students have joined EMYSO, NYO, Benslow, Stringwise, Strictly Strings, local orchestras, folk clubs, string quartets, pop groups and blues bands.
I am happy to prepare students for violin exams when they are ready, and I have a 100% success rate. I can also help performance and composition candidates at GCSE and AS/A Level.
I have a large music library, and established links with retailers, violin dealers and music-based organisations in the Nottingham area.
