Trusted teacher: Edward’s Teaching & Background: Edward is an accomplished and experienced Violin teacher/ Online tutor, who has been providing violin & theory lesson tuition since the age of 15, to all levels and ages (although more children /young people, ages 3-18), preparing students for ABRSM/TRINITY graded exams, or alternative teaching methodologies like The SUZUKI Method. As well as any goals, interests of the pupil/ parent, in any genre or style; Classical, Pop, Jazz, Contemporary, Rock, Symphonic Rock, Gospel, Sacred/ Religious . Lessons are likewise conducted online via Skype/Zoom/WhatsApp or any form of connected Video. Edward also has experience and delivers lessons to children with Learning Difficulties like Autism, or Disabilities like Sensory Disabilities. Lessons are conducted in Edwards music/ teaching studio with all the appropriate resources; Piano, music stands, other instruments, drawings by his students on the walls, writing resources, giving a positive vibrant music learning environment. Likewise he teaches in the studio to online students. His first 2 pupils then only aged 16, received Distinctions in Grade 1 and Grade 2 Violin, demonstrating Edward's enthusiasm and dedication in teaching pupils. Edward has also taught families together (Mum, Dad, Child), and has prepared both parents and child for graded exams. Edward organises yearly summer concerts for his pupils, giving them the opportunity to experience performing. And just to have a wonderful time in enjoying music, celebrating student achievement. Edward is Bi- lingual (Native in English and Russian ), he can and does deliver lessons to some pupils in Russian. He has a deep passion for Film /Cinematic Music, Edward composes and arranges his own versions of Movie soundtracks. Because of his fascination with Film music, Edward creates his own arrangement versions for his students who might for example want to learn a song from DISNEY’S MULAN or FROZEN. Apart from teaching, Edward leads a Children’s Orchestra and Choir in London Fenchurch Street. He also worked voluntarily abroad in Uganda, teaching Music & Music Theory in a boarding school. Teaching Method & Style: Hi there, In general I tailor / adjust every lesson to suit individual students; their goals, targets, interests, hobbies, what they do in their daily lives and / or as a family, and in general how the pupil is in character. As well as age, younger ages will require a different approach than with older children, young adults, or adults. I try to incorporate everything relevant to pupils that could be applied in lessons to provide effective teaching, helping pupils to progress/ reach their full potential. And so there is a genuine growing joy for the student, in playing violin, practicing, being taught, and attending the weekly lessons. Adapting to each student is fundamental for their music development, health and wellbeing, self confidence and self independence in music. I prepare all my students for ABRSM / TRINITY graded exams (1-8). This consists of; Pieces, Scales, Aural Training/ Ear training and Sight-Reading. Or the alternative SUZUKI method if the pupil has already previously started it, or desire this approach. I teach music theory in the lesson that goes in part with practical, usually the last part of the lesson or when the students are tired/lack concentration. All methods/resources are used; the piano, manuscript paper, physical activities to help understanding and the ABRSM Theory app on my IPad. Whilst there is focus on grades, I tap into the interests /goals / aspirations of pupils. I regularly have students who want to learn a piece for a competition, religious pieces for church services, or just a desire to learn a piece in any genre/ style. After each lesson, I send parents/students the lesson review/ analysis & homework which they can view in detail. And I am in weekly online contact with parents/ students for any assistance. Online "check-ups" of students via video are conducted to see how weekly progress is going. I am ( what my students tell me I hope!), funny, fun, patient ,very friendly, easy going, understanding, open, and yet have the balance in being demanding, having very high expectations for every student. I try to make the students feel as comfortable as possible, to be themselves in the lesson. The majority of my lessons are taught in my music teaching studio, but I am willing to travel an appropriate distance if that is suitable for the student/parent. I have an enhanced DBS check.

Performing with London Philharmonic Orchestra and other professional ensembles. Insta: gagaopaka I started playing the violin when I was 5 years old, and throughout my musical education I've been extremely lucky to study with generous teachers and masters. They not only passed on the knowledge of the violinistic technique, but also sparked my musical imagination and taught me how to listen to, understand and perform music from different ages of history. Over the past years, I approached music education from both a theoretical and practical point of view. During my Erasmus at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2016, I attended the Teaching Skills Course. It helped me to understand the many mechanisms of a performer’s thought processes and, consequently, to adjust my teaching method to each student. In 2016, being a member of Southbank Sinfonia enabled me to gain experience working with instrumentalists, mentoring young musicians at Glyndebourne, Vaughan Memorial School and Thomas's Battersea School. In 2014, I graduated in Pedagogical Studies at the Academy of Music in Cracow (2014). This diploma included psychology, pedagogy, didactics, voice projection, violin teaching methods and an internship at a music high school as a Violin Teacher. Among my recent teaching experiences, in August 2019 I gave masterclasses at the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music, working with musicians of the Penderecki Youth Orchestra. During the same period, I taught musicians of the NOR59 Strykeinstitutt Orchestra in Oslo. Recently I have been selected to be an Ambassador with The Benedetti Foundation in London.

Rudolf’s apprenticeships with master-players and professional work alongside colleagues in eminent ensembles have made him aware of a wide range of techniques that suit individual players. It has accordingly given him a strong belief in the need to address students individually to get the best from them and ensure that they enjoy their playing and progress with it. For this reason Rudolf also feels strongly about students getting into good habits with their playing practice, not only musically but also physically. One of the important aspects of his methodology of violin teaching is to ensure that students are instructed and helped to adopt healthy postures whilst playing. These good habits need to be instilled early in order to avoid muscle strains and tensions and later damage, so that students can play comfortably and healthily, and enjoy making music (such instruction is also good more broadly in ensuring good posture for class work and other situations throughout life). As part of this aspect of his teaching he also uses exercises with elements of the Alexander Technique, yoga and breathing techniques. His formal studies in music pedagogy, and teaching practice along with his regular playing with internationally renowned ensembles, his private teaching of young violinists and work as a concertmaster, organising concerts with peers and students at Southampton, Winchester and Budapest, allows him to bring a range of experience and expertise, as well as enthusiasm, to teaching violin.
