Roger is a professional musician and teacher living in London. He's been playing music and working in the industry for about 30 years. After graduating from the Royal School of Music in 2002, he went on to complete some teaching courses and became a qualified music tutor.
Roger knows that teaching music requires a deep understanding of how different people learn. Every student is different, therefore every single student needs an absolutely customised educational method and plan. Along with teaching a technical understanding of the violin, Roger aims to impart a passion for music which will help students perform with confidence and ease.
Roger teaches violin from beginners to advanced students age 6 and up. He can also help students who are specifically preparing for ABRSM exams or other exam boards including Trinity.
Roger can teach:
- Scales & technical exercises
- Correct posture
- And more!
- Can follow Suzuki method if desired
Roger can teach a variety of genres but his speciality is classical music.
Before the first lesson, Roger aims to understand the student's expectations and technical needs to create a unique personal method based on the facts. So the more information you can provide, the better and shorter path he can tailor for you.
Roger will ask you about your:
- Skill level (if already playing)
- Repertoire (if already playing)
Don’t worry if your violin isn’t playable yet - Roger can help with tuning and setting up your instrument.
If you’re happy after the first lesson, we will agree on a regular date & time for lessons and set out a practice schedule to ensure that you achieve your goals.
