About Me

Since 2013 I have gained an extensive experience teaching students of all ages and abilities either privately or in specialist schools and universities. Within these appointments I have been responsible for teaching general musicianship, guiding students through the ABRSM grade exams, preparing students for competitions and public concerts and helping students with practice techniques in order to see week to week progress.

I tailor my lessons to the individual as I believe that this is one of the most important components of teaching one-to-one lessons as every student is unique and requires an individualised education to their needs and learning processes. It is important to have a balance between what ‘should' be learned in any curriculum and what ‘should’ be learned to gain a rounded musical education. I have always prided myself on my ability to apportion my time accordingly to tick both boxes, which is something I consider to be key in maintaining interest and enjoyment alongside syllabus and technical progress.

Aside from teaching, I perform regularly as a soloist and chamber musician. It is important to be able to demonstrate on the instrument during lessons as it inspires and motivates the student and provides them with a first hand reference point within the profession.

Violin and Viola Lessons - Learn a new instrument or improve your skills
I'm an experienced teacher, with students of different levels/ages. I enjoy the diversity of students and understanding of their different ways of learning and goals and for me, this is the best part of the job - to know an treat each student as a unique person that they are. You'll be encouraged to make music from the very first day. Together with some necessary music theory, always applied to the instrument, you'll learn pieces of gradual difficulty. We make use of progressive tuition methods and you'll learn a solid technique by playing scales, bowing and fingering exercises and easy tunes to begin with. Repertoire includes etudes, playful and challenging concert pieces and from the very beginning duos to play with the teacher.

Guitar Lessons for Beginners and Intermediates in London
I am a guitar teacher willing to travel around London. I used to teach guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, and drums in San Francisco. My style of teaching is hands on and not as book based as I believe that this approach generates a deeper interest and understanding of music than a book can bring. Lessons cover basic chords, technique, music theory, and songs (I can pre-learn a song for you). I am flexible when it comes to your musical, educational, and scheduling needs.
