Hello Students and Parents,
In 2020 I will only take a small number of violin students.
I have been teaching the piano and violin for many years and through this time have assisted hundreds of students as they work towards AMEB exams, scholarships and competitions.
In the past 15 years, I have had 43 students receive scholarships to prestigious private schools and many hundreds achieve outstanding results at competitions and AMEB exams alike.
I am a qualified primary and secondary school teacher, so my ability to relate to and work with students of all ages and levels is highly developed.
I have developed my own method for teaching which focuses on thorough technique. Through this method, I have helped each of my students experience outstanding results.
I take students of all ages and levels. You may like to read my article about the best age to start on my website
My youngest students are 3 years old and came to me with no music or violin experience. Between 3 and 6 is generally the best time to start, but everyone is different and I can advise you further when we meet for a free introductory lesson.
I also enjoy the challenge of taking on students who have learned elsewhere but not experienced the success that they are looking for. Without a doubt, there will be reasons as to why a student is not achieving to their potential and it gives me great pleasure to find these reasons and work with the student to overcome them.
My students generally stay with me for many years and most of them continue learning the violin until they reach and pass the highest AMEB levels.
Please contact me to arrange a free introductory lesson. I have many violins, so if you are just starting, don't buy one straight away as I may have one that you can borrow, most likely free of charge.
If you are serious about learning properly, I would love to hear from you. Everyone is different and even if I feel that I am not the right teacher for you, I am happy to put you in contact with other teachers who I know to be capable.
Thank you for your interest in learning music. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
