I am multi-instrumental performer and teacher.
I offer lessons from beginner to advanced levels on violin, guitar, ukelele, mandolin, tenor banjo, viola and bass guitar. Coming from a background in classical studies and years performing contemporary and folk styles, my lessons offer a wide range of styles to learn technical skills and diverse knowledge to each instrument.
My approach to teaching each instrument emphasises proper technique to ensure peak development while preventing long term injury through bad habits.
I believe that an understanding of theoretical knowledge along provides the best foundation for a broad set of practical skills to develop, especially in regards to the skills of improvisation.
Overall I respect the student's interests and set goals based on what they would like to achieve, striving to meet the aims of their expectations during our lessons.
