Students will be able to learn basic techniques and theory skills which assist in the learning. They will be able to learn a range of pieces some of which I will choose and some of which they can choose. If the student comes to me with a specific agenda I will follow that as best as possible. If they don't come with an agenda I'll make one up and approve it before hand.Show More Show Less

years old and completed my AMusA towards the end of 2017. I've played violin since the age of 4 and was classically trained however I have also done a couple of folk fiddle camps, one of which was in Scotland under Alasdair Fraser (a well know Scottish fiddler). Throughout my classical training I studied under some great people. One predominant teacher was Peterson Tanfield whom has played alongside Pinchas Zukerman and Itzhak Perlman (both of which are violin greats) and managed to pass on many great techniques.
My whole family has generally been musical so it's something that's always been apart of my life. Having started out so young myself, I know how to approach young students. People say that I've got a bubbly personality, am optimistic and I've always got a smile on my face. I am also quite a perfectionist but know that it can take time to do so. Furthermore, I'm a professional diver, yes like in the Olympics, although I haven't quite made it to that stage yet.
In terms of teaching styles I believe that slow and steady is the way to go. Take a little longer over some basics which truly does make things easier later. I do however also believe that every student is different, they have different needs and different teaching methods work on different people. Thanks.
