About Seb

Classically trained violinist with over 25 years in the profession. Adults and children welcome for beginner to advanced violin lessons in Balham.

New starters, be they adults or children will first learn all about the violin and playing position. All elements of playing the violin proficiently will be covered, whilst also learning to read music, if this is something new to the student. ABRSM grades can be undertaken and the focus for all students will be development of sound and technique and of course tackling some great repertoire.

If an instrument needs to be purchased, Seb can make recommendations, referring students to specialist string instrument shops in London, which sell or loan properly set up instruments.
Lessons will be relaxed and fun but always with set aims, to progress and achieve technical excellence. Also an accomplished pianist (achieving Grade 8 Distinction on both violin and piano at a young age), Seb regards the piano as an integral part of music making within a lesson and will accompany students when required.
