Violin playing is by nature a creative and individual undertaking. I believe the most practical approach should therefore be one that is individualised, based on each student’s unique set of strengths and needs. My approach to teaching the violin has been informed by my own learning, from a young age through to my studies at master’s level, as well as by my performing experience.
My students typically participate in 1-2 individual violin lessons a week, which may be in-person or online via video call. Lessons are typically geared towards helping the students to become self-sufficient in their practice and therefore equipped with an understanding that helps them to get the most enjoyment out of playing the violin. There is a focus on developing one’s own musical imagination, as well as the application of technique that enables the student to express themselves in a natural and comfortable manner.
I have experience teaching beginner and advanced violin players both in-person and over video call. There are a range of lesson packages and trial sessions available if you are thinking about improving or learning to play the violin; simply fill in the contact form below and I can take you through the best options, which will be individually tailored for your needs.
My in-person violin lessons take place at the Rathpeacon Community Centre, Cork.
