I teach the violin and viola from my home in Mile End, East London. Using online platforms, I can connect with you wherever you are. You can use your laptop, tablet or smart phone. Lessons are charged at a rate of £20 per half hour. If cost is an issue, I can give advice on sources of funding for music lessons. Adult students usually opt for 1 hour lessons (£40) either weekly or fortnightly. The youngest students I accept are 6 years old and I recommend 30 minute lessons weekly for young beginners which can be lengthened to 45 minutes or one hour after the first year. When considering learning an instrument, it is worth taking into account the time needed for practice. For beginners, I find that 15-30 minutes practice every day ensures good progress.

I am currently teaching the full range of students including beginners aged 6, beginner adults, experienced adults and children working for grade 8. I often coach professional actors who wish to have an intensive burst of lessons before a role in which they will be performing on the violin. There is more information about my teaching on the About Me page.
Please note that a minimum of 48 hours is required to cancel a lesson otherwise the full fee is required.
