Teaching in Violin and Viola
- Teaching will be tailored to the individual students ambitions, whether this be graded examinations or a more personal programme of study.
- Lessons will balance technical work such as scales and studies with creative learning methods like improvisation and playing duets.
- Rhiannon is confident working on and offering a diverse range of repertoire depending on the individual students tastes and enthusiasm.
The first lesson would consist of an initial discussion of your musical preferences and ambitions, some warm up games and a look at a piece you have been working on.
If this is your first ever lesson you would spend the time working on how to hold the instrument and bow comfortably and working out a short piece for you to go away and practice.
