I am a classical/ jazz violin and piano teacher.
I'm a passionate violin and piano teacher with an Honours degree from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester having won an Associated Board of the Royal Schools scholarship for Africa at the age of seventeen. I was so fortunate to grow up in a culturally diverse and musical family, my mum and brother being professional musicians. My devoted parents were both passionate teachers and inspired me greatly.
I did my initial training up to Grade Eight in violin, piano and theory -Bulawayo Zimbabwe.
I am currently living in Cape Town.
I have had over thirty years performing and teaching experience of both children and adults. I have taught one to one and groups of students successfully.
My teaching is aimed both for the aspiring amateur and professional musician. I believe magic really happens when making music with others. Music opens great doors of opportunity, heals emotionally and changes one's mood and thus the world. It is the most powerful force in the universe in my belief. A person is never too old to learn an instrument.
I believe there is great beauty in learning an instrument, and I am passionate about joining my students on this journey. My music school is Letters to the Bride Music School, and I teach piano, harp, accordion and music theory. I believe music is more than just playing the right notes, more than being paper-perfect, but truly about the musicality, the joy and delight of playing and the love of learning. Music is never-ending. There is always something to learn.
Douglasdale (Bryanston, Sandton area) in-person lessons. Online Lessons available.
I am a young violinist, who is currently completing my Masters degree in Music. I have been playing for 17 years and have played in a number of ensembles and orchestras, both professionally and casually. I currently teach violin at a boys school in Pretoria, but my private studio is based in Johannesburg.
I aim to take the time to get to know each student and create positive learning environment, where their learning style is complimented, and where they can grow a love for music.
I am a professional cellist for many years. Teaching is a passion and I am available to teach privately, via Zoom, or in groups. I teach all grades.
