Meet Karen

I am a violin and piano teacher and have lots of experience teaching and also playing in provincial theatres. I really love teaching music and helping students learn to play an instrument. Learning to play an instrument can also help with mental health, reduce stress and aid concentration and be fun. I have taught many pupils, adults and children and adults and children with learning difficulties and for those students who wanted to take exams I have a 100% pass rate of merits and distinctions due to their hard work. Lessons are tailored to each pupil and are fun. Learn through a genre that you like eg., pop, classical, rock etc, learn through music that you enjoy. For Children and teenagers (with parents' agreement) there is a reward * scheme, when a pupil gains 10*'s or if an older pupil gains 10 A or B grades or Well done they receive a piece of musical stationery. Certainly the younger pupils really enjoy this and it really motivates them to play music at home and work hard. Lessons are fun and as well as learning to play pieces may include music quizzes and improvisation as well.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
Lessons are in blocks of 4, 6 or 10. With a block of 10 lessons you get discount.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I offer a trial lesson for £4. I find out if the customer has previous experience of playing an instrument or reading music or if they are a complete beginner. I offer advice if purchasing a violin or piano and advise what accessories are needed.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
Exams can be taken through the ABRSM, Trinity or Rock School of Music Exam Boards, on line or at the Music Centres. As well as my Grade 8 Distinction Violin and Grade 5 Merit piano I have taken a one year course in Introduction to Music Therapy and am currently studying for The Certificate of Music Educators.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I have always loved music and wanted to teach music from the age of 8 years old. From the age of 11 I was lucky enough to enjoy playing violin in the Boroughs Schools Orchestras and eventually became leader of the Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra and played in the Quartets, also playing in concerts in France and playing at the Albert Hall, St Johns Smiths Sq, London and many other venues with these orchestras from the age of 14 years old.
