Music Theory / Violin Lessons for Beginners in London (online option as well)

Hello! I’m Miguel, a 22 year-old musician/singer/songwriter, based in London. I’ve been studying music theory and professional violin since I was 4 years old.
I started as an orchestra player and went to music school till I was 18, when I started writing and composing my own material.

About Me

Music is my life, it’s what I’ve known since I was a child and it’s always an honour to share a little bit of that love I have for music with other people, and teach them how to fall in love with it too.
I’m a very kind but determined teacher, I like to tailor each class to that specific student’s needs and goals. I’m very honest, I’m a good listener and I’m very friendly and approachable

Education

I did most of my music theory education back in my home country (Venezuela) in a school called Don Angel Mottola Music School, as well as lots of different private violin teachers in my city. Then when I moved to London I studied at Mountview Academy for Theatre Arts and graduated in 2022

Experience / Qualifications

I played Violin at the National Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela for about 7 years. That’s where I got most of my experience with the instrument. When I was 18 I started composing my own music and took singing lessons privately, until I started going to Mountview where I deepened my knowledge in singing. I have experience in the world of Musical Theatre, as well as a singer/songwriter for my own projects

Piano and music theory/composition lessons for beginners/intermediates
I am a composer/pianist currently studying at Royal College of Music. I started studying music at quite young, but never found my passion in it until my late teenage years. Now music is such an integral part of my life and well being, and I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences to support others on their musical journeys. As a teacher I am very flexible and can adapt to how you want to learn, I also take a creative approach to teaching piano so that my students develop their musicianship and composition skills while learning the piano. As a composer, I always bring elements of music theory and composition into my piano teaching, so that my students can develop their musicianship and creativity while improving their piano playing skills. My teaching philosophy is that the most important aspect of learning music is to find one’s interest and passion in it, and my goal as a teacher is to support my students and help them find their passion in music; However, I am familiar with the ABRSM examinations and have a Grade 8 certificate myself, and I always tailor my lessons to different students based on what they are looking for.

In October of 2021 she joined the Herne Hill Music Studio in London as one of their tutors. She enjoys teaching students of all levels and ages, and is always willing to exchange knowledge, seeking new exciting and productive ways of learning.

The students’ happiness, acquisition of new knowledge and musical improvement are the most important things to her. Diana Cummings, the LRAM programme supervisor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, said: “Ana gave a detailed and very well-presented analysis of the baroque viola, the comparison with modern viola and how it could be taught. You have a very analytical mind and think through all the elements of teaching effectively and constructively.
