About Berfin Aksu LTD

Hello wonderful people! My name is Berfin, I am an accomplished musician, violinist with a huge background, and I have been playing the violin, making music for over 15 years. My training is really special, having learnt from the masters of violin with extensive knowledge and understanding. I absolutely love teaching all ages and levels. It is a joy getting to share my background with a new take; playfulness alongside having a deep understanding of why we have to also go through the seemingly boring sides of learning an instrument which feels as if it never ends. I am a patient teacher who will always be there to give you extra courage to never give up, and allow time to settle with all the new things that you learn, enjoying every step of how to play the violin, how to be a musician. I believe what I offer is unique and I would be more than happy to provide you with anything you may ask (cv, bio, personal information, and anything else). ***I offer a meeting of half an hour at a convenient place (most likely a coffee house :) to get to know both the student and their family, to understand the needs of that particular student, as each person is different, and also introduce myself. After that we get to decide together if you would like to start learning with me, and the rest is history! Violin can be very beautiful and fun if you choose to make the journey (practise) playful!

Lara M.'s review on Sep 29, 2020

Having berfin as my teacher was extremely fortunate as she always had values when teaching me; the communication between us was very clear yet it was also very nice to have little chats after each lesson. The best thing for me was her professionalism when instructing me; she always arrived when needed to and focused on teaching me, even though the environment wasn't the best for learning. Judging by how she teaches, I can tell that she is a very passionate tutor.

Semiha B.'s review on Jan 29, 2020

Berfin is a great teacher and is very motivating and patient. I recently passed my grade 5 exam and I would not have without her. She is very nice and kind hearted and is never rude. She is the best teacher I’ve had. She is an amazing teacher and has so many great techniques and a unique way to teach. I highly recommend her.

Umay A.'s review on Jan 28, 2020

Berfin is one of the most talented music teachers that I have had the pleasure of working with. Not only is she an exceptionally gifted violin player but a great teacher as well. As someone in the teaching profession myself, I am quite picky with the tutors that I select. Until now, I had not found a violin tutor that I felt could really help me make progress with the tricky instrument. However, I feel as though I am in very good hands with Berfin. She has complete mastery of the violin; knowledge which she imparts with ease and clarity. She is very patient and also clearly very passionate about her instrument. Furthermore, Berfin is very reliable in the professional sense. She is never late and has not yet had to cancel any of our lessons. I definitely feel as though I am getting my money's worth. Overall, I am very happy with Berfin and wholeheartedly recommend her as a violin instructor.

Dilara K.'s review on Jan 28, 2020

Berfin is an excellent tutor that truly loves the violin. Her joy of playing immediately translates into her teaching. She is incredibly attentive and very careful in her communication. The lessons have been exciting and informative. Her patience and calmness is almost contagious. Definitely worth your time and money, if not more.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
As a self-employed musician/teacher, with the knowledge that I offer, the price for an hour changes between 35-40 pounds, depending on the needs of the student, and their financial situation. I am always flexible and help as much as possible, but to be able to earn and maintain a living in London, this is my estimate as a teacher.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I always like to get to know my students and their families, to find out where they are at with their music, whether they want to do grade exams or learn for their own journey without exams, and anything else that helps me to find a starting point.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
My entire education has been on mastering the violin, and music. The past 16 years are all relevant to my work, because of the conservatoires and teachers I learnt with throughout my life.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
To give each teacher that resonates with you a chance. Especially in times like these, we all need work, and the support between a student and a teacher can be so meaningful, as both have something to gain.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Usually the questions may vary, but usually to ask about the careers of the pros, the specifics of what they will be teaching, and possibly a bit about their knowledge too. Openness is always key.
What are some good examples of past customers?
All my past students are good examples. Some of them felt they had enough lessons, or they had other responsibilities, but always kept in touch, coming for lessons every now and then.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
One of my students passed her grade 5 exam. One of them started from the very beginning, and is improving so fast, that it really makes me grateful to be able do something I thoroughly enjoy.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I always knew I wanted to teach along with performing, so it came to me very naturally, when I felt ready to start teaching, the business itself took off!
