I have been teaching violin and piano for a number of years and have recently made the transition to teaching online! I was trained at the Royal Northern College of Music and I am very happy to teach all ages and skill sets on both Violin and Piano. While being classically trained, I have interests in many different genres of music, I run and play with a Gypsy Jazz band, a tango duo and a Ceilidh band and I have strong love of Eastern European folk and Klezmer. Even if I'm not familiar with a certain genre i'm very happy to learn new things, so don't be worried about bringing me unusual pieces of music, or even your own compositions. I have found that teaching is constant a learning curve and no two students are the same, and its always fun to experience something new!
Hello, my name is Oscar and I am a Violin and Piano teacher from the UK, now living in Berlin. I've been teaching and performing on both instruments for 5 years, during, and after my studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have taught children from the age of four, up to adults in their late sixties, and I find all spectrums of age and ability rewarding and engaging to work with. Regarding Violin tuition, I am happy to teach up to any level. On the piano I however, I currently prefer to teach up to an ABRSM grade 8 level, and not far above it. My musical endeavours, whilst focused predominantly on the Classical style in my early childhood, have become quite varied and I am a great lover of many different styles. I play regularly in Klezmer bands, Celtic Folk groups and I run a Gypsy Jazz Collective, besides performing with Orchestra's, Small string ensembles, and as a Solo Violinist. Whilst I wouldn't consider myself to be an expert, I thoroughly enjoy guiding people through the early stages of learning to improvise, and I am equally comfortable working with students in this way as I am teaching in a more tradition, classically orientated manner. I look forward to hearing from you! Oscar
