Teaching Experience

I have wide-ranging teaching experience and have taught many people in the last 16 years.

I set up my private teaching practice in 2001, in Gillingham, Kent.
I began teaching students on an individual basis. Ages ranged from 3-85 years. My teaching practice has gone from strength to strength over the years. I feel that I have a very good reputation and am a very experienced teacher. The amount of students which I have gained over the past few years reflect this. I have regularly entered students for ABRSM exams and all have received good passes.

I began teaching piano individually and in small groups at Thamesview Infants School, Rainham in May 2008. I also began teaching violin individually and in small groups at Fairview Primary School, Wigmore at the same time. I then took up the post of part time Music Teacher at Blue Skies School, Rochester, which is a private secondary school for children with Aspergers Syndrome, in September 2009.  Here I taught classroom music.  My teaching within schools grew from here.  Below are listed the schools where I am currently teaching.

Violin tuition at Thomas Aveling School, Rochester.
Violin tuition at Rivermead School, Gillingham.
Violin and Piano tuition at Brompton Westbrook Primary School, Gillingham.

Lesson Content

Both Violin and Piano lessons take place on a weekly basis and are 30 minutes or one hour in length. Although children do tend to benefit more from a 30 minute lesson and adults from an hour lesson.

Lessons are based around the individual and are taught in a very fun and interactive way, ensuring maximum engagement and enjoyment.

 

Prices:

30 minute Violin/Piano lesson – £15.50
1 hour Violin/Piano lesson – £31.00

These prices are the same for Music Theory lessons, which are also offered.

Lessons are available during term time and school holidays

Lessons must be paid for 1 month in advance, and contracts must be signed agreeing to my teaching terms and conditions. Contracts can be downloaded by clicking on one of the links below.
