Violinbabies and Sheena

Violinbabies has proved very useful with my youngest violin pupils.  This is a fun approach to learning the violin which leads naturally to traditional notation and composition.

My thoughts on teaching music

In my teaching I aim to teach overall musicality as well as how to play the violin and other music skills.  I like to tailor my lessons to individual pupils.  Happy to work with pupils just for fun, or working towards exams.

Musical experience

I have been playing the violin for over thirty years and gained a Bachelor of Music during my studies at Napier University.  I studied teaching as part of my course.

I have a lot of experience of playing in amateur orchestras as well as leading the second violin section in Scottish Sinfonia, my current orchestra.

I have been teaching the violin privately since 2008 and have experience of teaching a wide variety of ages and different standards from complete beginners to Grade 6 standard.
