Violin & Viola - Individual Lessons

I trained to teach after my four children, all now adults, had started school. I wanted to help students to find self-esteem, along with respect for others, through their understanding and expression of music. I care passionately about music and feel a responsibility to encourage a passion for this subject in my students. I gained the post of Head of Music after only two and a half years of teaching, and enjoyed developing music in that school. My main instrument is the violin. I also play viola and flute and sing.
I have played in the Essex Symphony Orchestra, a jazz band, a folk band and a church worship band. I have also been trained to teach the Stave House system of notation which is an engaging method and can be used with students up to year seven to teach them to read music alongside any other method they may be using. It helps students to become independent learners, able to work out for themselves what notes they are reading or writing.
