About Sarah Thornett Violin Lessons

Have you always been curious about playing with an instrument like the violin? Do you want to learn new skills and gain the confidence to play in front of people? I’ve played the violin my whole life and have been teaching on and off since I was a teenager. My professional career as a performer took off in 2012 when I left the Royal Northern College of Music where I studied with Pavel Fischer. Since moving to London in 2016, I freelance full-time with many London orchestras (including Philharmonia, London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, London Symphony and English Chamber Orchestra) and have acquired a small pool of students. My students are of different abilities and ages, all determined to enhance their skills – I have taught both beginners and grade 8 ranging from age 3 up to adult learners. I now would love to expand my access to new students as online teaching is more accessible. Whether you are a beginner keen on learning more about the basics or you are at an intermediate level wanting to progress as a violinist, you can rely on my expertise and heartfelt advice to become a better player. I love making connections and breakthroughs with a student - the violin is hard and it is so exciting when a student overcomes a hurdle! That sense of achievement is gold and what keeps me going as a teacher. As a sensitive and approachable teacher, I’m reactive to each student’s needs rather than using a generic or formulaic approach. Your goals matter to me and I put a great deal of effort so you improve your technique and play the violin with grace...of course, I expect effort and enthusiasm from you too! Making lessons fun and worthwhile is vital to keep students engaged! Most of the material and resources are from the Suzuki method as that is how I learnt but always try to include other repertoires that my students are interested in playing. I am punctual and a good communicator, always making certain that you understand my instructions and I’m happy to answer questions at any stage. I follow up online lessons with written feedback and have created recordings that you can access to play along with. You will need a violin (although I am also happy to teach music theory) and you will need to purchase some music at some point. However, the most important tools remain passion and practice! I offer the first lesson at a reduced rate so you can get an inkling of what’s in store and if you’re ready for the next lessons. Please note that I’m now offering online lessons on Zoom for greater convenience! Ready to start? Do get in touch for a quick chat and the next steps – I do look forward to hearing from you!

Beth W.'s review on Jul 28, 2020

Sarah has helped me fall in love with playing my violin again. After giving up as a child, Ive recently had Sarah encourage and motivate me to enjoy playing again. I’ve enjoyed every lesson and come away knowing more and eager for the next. Sarah is v good at explaining things and is patient with me when I don’t understand. Sarah’s notes after lessons are in depth and good guidelines for you to follow through your weekly practice. I’d really recommend Sarah, she can adapt to how a student learns and is passionate for you to be your best.

Sarah has been my daughter tutor for a few months now! She came highly recommend from my daughter's previous tutor (who moved out of the country). Her teaching style is quite different and she has been able to motivate my daughter to practice more often. In my daughter's own words "Sarah is a very good, patient, funny and nice teacher. I really enjoy the lessons and look forward to the next one".

Maud P.'s review on May 06, 2020

Sarah has been my daughters tutor for sometime now. I high recommend her as she is able to tune her teaching Style to the child’s needs and offer suggestions and techniques in which the child can gain the best from Her lessons. She also makes the lessons enjoyable and most importantly works with the parents by listening to their expectations and ways to improve upon their music skills. Below is an excerpt from my 8 year old daughter. I recommend Sarah because Sarah is a good violin teacher she teaches techniques to you and she goes over them and if you don’t understand she also help you if you’re stuck. Sarah will help you until you get it right. Sarah will also give you new songs to learn when I was in grade 1 Sarah helped me pass my my violin exam that’s why I recommend Sarah to you.
