Learn VIolin (beginner-advanced), Piano (beginner-intermediate), Music theory, history and music appreciation. All ages.

Dear friend, I would like to help you or your child to realise the creativity and beauty of music through instrumental music lessons. I like to integrate my lessons with a holistic approach to learning an instrument, with a focus on establishing a solid technique and facility on the instrument through the lessons without letting the mechanical technicalities of an instrument eclipse the musicality of playing an instrument and therefore the enjoyment of it. I can also teach music theory, history and aural (ear) training. I am happy to teach any age, I have 6 years of teaching at Forres Preparatory school in Cape Town as well as teaching a couple of adults. Most of my experience is with children, however, I encourage adults to learn as learning an instrument for an adult is one of the most rewarding activities. Currently, I am studying towards my Masters in Music Education at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague (2019-2021) with Liesbeth Ackermans as my violin teacher. In terms of my own experience in music, I have performed as a solo violinist with orchestra as well as being an ad hoc tutti violinist for the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the baroque violin for the Camerata Tinta Barocca and Cape Consort. I have a great interest in world music, folk or ethnic music from all over the world as well as different approaches to teaching music (for instance Dalcroze eurhythmics) and performing. Because of the styles of music I have and I have performed with traditional African musicians and ensembles, performed with MusicDance021 interdisciplinary real-time composition project and attended a summer school in Dalcroze Eurhythmics. I seem to have a bit of a global approach to music, perhaps as I have received tuition in music for short or long periods of time in South Africa, Europe, California, China and Australia.
