Violin and Viola Teacher / Teaching / Tuition - Beginners to Advanced

East Finchley, London
94 days ago


I am based in East Finchley, a short distance away from East Finchley underground station (Northern line).

I travel to students living in the area and to those relatively close to stations along the Northern Line down to Camden Town and over to Hampstead / Golders Green.

I’m happy to teach all ages and abilities in a hopefully enjoyable and relaxed manner.

I teach violin (and viola) from beginners to advanced.

Perhaps you have played an instrument before and require a few lessons to decide if you want to take up the instrument again.

If you have a specific project such as a music practical exam, entrance exam or competition, I can help with this as well.

For those wishing to take exams, my philosophy is to use them as an aid to my teaching, and most importantly, to give students a sense of achievement. Ideally, they should be entered into exams when they are at a playing level where they should be awarded a merit or distinction.

I see no value to a student entering an exam prematurely and scraping a pass, especially when there are normally a number of sittings per year to choose from.

Particularly with children and young adults, success in a music exam and the self-esteem that flows from good results can be the foundation of academic success in other subjects. It also can prepare students for auditions and entrance exams as well.

Musical Development
I have completed a BMus with Honours degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music in Greenwich, London.

DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB)
I am registered on the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) national register and have an Enhanced Certificate working with children as private music teacher from Sept 2013.

£30 for 1/2 hour and £40 for 1-hour lessons. (Please note that my published rates are for teaching students close the underground stations Northern Line down to Camden Town).
