I have 8 years of teaching and tutoring experience in a variety of environments. I have always enjoyed teaching, tailoring my tuition to the individual and doing my utmost to ensure that each individual achieves their goals, whatever they may be.
In addition to my education and training, I lived in Austria for 3 years working as an English Language Assistant for the British Council. This invaluable time enabled me to fully hone my German language skills, and I have since worked as an online translator.

I have over 15 years of experience, in teaching music to children and adults of all ages. My main profession is individual and group music lessons, within primary schools. I have many private music students - which I have now adapted to teaching, where needed, via skype/zoom or using other digital resources. This method is working incredibly well!
I am the co-founder of a music school (Exeter Music Holiday School), which has been running for 7 years. We offer workshops and individual lessons, throughout every UK, mainstream school holiday. I also play the flute in a Ceilidh band, play in the pit for panto, and have perfomed on various instruments (including vocals), for group concerts and individual performances.
As the 'Wind' section leader, for Exeter Childrens Orchestra (ECO), I am having a wondeful experinece so far, and it has given me the opportunity to brush up on my basic Bassoon skills - which is my next planned venture.
Teaching the following instruments/vocals, in schools and privately has enabled me to tutor to varying degrees, and examination levels (I generally use ABRSM, as the preffered exam board). Here are the instruments I can provide lessons for:
At music school, I run workshops in world music, folk music, tales and art. Storytelling through music. Wind, strings, brass and percussion. Many workshops are adapted to the seasons, outdoor spaces so that we can explore and be inspired. Music really holds no bounderies and can be found everywhere.
I am constantly learning a new instrument, and take the exams through the levels. It keeps me on track with how it feels to learn and coping with exam prep and nerves. Empathy and connections is very important.
Being a parent, I know how important it is, to feel that your child is safe and happy with a mentor. This is why I encourge the take-up of a 'free' initial lesson, so that you feel happy and comfortable with going forward.
Although I do not have any specialist qualifications in working with children and adults with additional needs, I do have lots of experience. I have many wondefullly bright students, within these spectrums, whom have taught me so much. I am more than happy to re-invent the wheel and nurture what is important to each person. My eldest son is a child with autism, and he is an incredibly gifted musicican, who learns by ear and repitition (even though he can read music prefectly well) - as this is how he responds. He feels his way though it, and this makes his very happy. He has also happily sat many exams.
I would love to hear from you. Feel free to get in touch with any questions.
I began my career as a violinist with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, where I played for 13 years, as well as being a visiting teacher of violin at Oakham School, Rutland. Following the arrival of my children, I completed a secondary PGCE in music, qualifying to teach GCSE and A level music; I am currently an AS and A level examiner for Pearson Edexcel. Following my Masters with TrinityLaban, I have returned to private instrumental teaching and music theory and GCSE/A level tutoring, as well as undertaking some music service teaching, music examining and professional performing. I currently teach music theory, coach chamber music and conduct a string ensemble at Primary Royal Academy of Music in London.
I am experienced with children and young people from KS2 through to KS5, and teach violin from beginner up to diploma level. I also teach music theory, viola and can coach GCSE and A level instrumental performance candidates. As an A level examiner, and a very experienced GCSE music teacher, I can provide additional lessons or support for GCSE and A level music candidates, including teaching coursework composition.
I believe firmly that all human beings have an innate musical ability and enjoy finding creative ways to draw that out in all learners, no matter their age or current ability.

I am a very dedicated and determined teacher who believes in spending time with pupils to help them understand the subjects they are learning. I am qualified, friendly and experienced teacher dedicated to student learning.
I feel that I am able to connect with pupils through my friendly and personable nature. I love teaching and have the determination to provide the best possible education to my students. I am flexible, patient, and understanding. I am extremely keen to explore creativity within the curriculum, and am committed to high expectation and achievement whilst looking to make learning more accessible and fun.
I am keen to be assigned to a position that will help me build up on my skills and grow as a professional in order to make me the best teacher that I am able to be.
You can learn at The Violin Academy in person or via video chat.
Due to Covid-19 a risk assessment has been undertaken. Hygiene and safety measures have been implemented to ensure the safety of my students and myself as the teacher. This document can be emailed to you on request.
I teach students of all ages and ability levels from ‘absolute beginners’ who may never have picked up a violin, students at ‘novice level’ of all ages who used to play, regret giving it up and are returning to the violin and I also coach and mentor ‘accomplished musicians’ who feel they would benefit from a professional working musician to improve their technical ability or performance technique.
There are so many things that your lessons can involve, from learning new pieces of music, to technical exercises, flowing scales and arpeggios, and playing beautiful duets.
Many of my students just want to play violin for the pure joy or challenge it brings to their life. Others are taking GCSE in music or want to achieve exam gradings from a registered teacher of The Associate Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM). For those who want to broaden their qualifications even further I also take 14-24 year olds through the skills section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (Bronze, Silver or Gold).
I have a number of younger students who are on the autistic spectrum and Asperger Syndrome, each with a different and unique personality. Building close relationships with all my students key to getting the best out of them and I have wide experience in making every session fun and enjoyable. My teaching methods are adapted to each student, being sensitive to their needs. Every parent and teacher has noticed marked and continuous improvement in cognitive ability and personality.
Miss Alexandra P.
Director of The Violin Academy
I was born in 1992 in Bursa, Turkey. In 1998, I took my first piano lessons from
Pianist Alexander Mekaev at Bursa Philharmonic Society. In 2004, I studied musical hearing,
music theory and harmony / counterpoint with Bursa Regional State Symphony Orchestra
artists Duygu Borova Ozler and Gokce Ozler. In 2006, I succeeded in talent exams at Bursa
Zeki Muren Anatolian High School for Fine Arts and continued my piano education with Oya
While continuing my education at Anatolian Fine Arts High School, I started working
with Yıldız Aslanova,state artist and lecturer pianist. In 2009, I passed the exams of the
European Youth Symphony Orchestra (EJOD) and gave concerts in various countries
(Germany, France) to represent my country. During my tenure abroad, I worked with various
pianists and improved my speaking English. In 2009, I was accepted to the chamber orchestra
of Nilufer Municipality and continued my chamber music and orchestral education with
Professor Hasan Adiguzelzade.
I started Bursa Uludag University Music Education Department in 2010 following my
extraordinary success in the talent examination. In 2013 Istanbul International Pera Piano
Competition, I was awarded for the Best Freelance Interpretation. I actively participated in
masterclass studies with Tamara Poddubnaya and Associate Professor Ferit Adıguzelzade.
Graduating from Uludag University with honors in 2014, I won the master’s degree Program
of the Department of Music Education at Uludag University.
During my graduate education, I actively took part in various projects within the
university. During this period, I was assigned to accompany the undergraduate students
(string instruments). In 2018, I completed my master's degree with thesis.
During my undergraduate and graduate education, I worked as a freelance private
piano instructor and piano accompanist in various music institutions. I have been preferred by
the institutions in order to teach foreign students living in Bursa.
I prepared my students actively for festivals, concerts and competitions in music
institutions or with private lessons. At the same time, I prepared students for special talent
entrance exams of music schools and conservatories and they succeeded in these exams.
I prepared my students for the piano and theory examinations of The Associated Board
of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) for all grades and most of them passed the exams
In 2015, I performed the piano accompaniment of the DMD Polyphonic Choir, which
is part of the World Music Association. With this choir, I performed in Ankara Polyphonic
Choirs Festival. I donated all the revenues of my concerts during my undergraduate and
graduate studies to various charities and associations, and I also volunteered in various social
responsibility projects. I continue my active participation in the online certificate program of
Eskisehir University called “Piano Trainer-1” and “Fundamentals of Music Theory” by the
University of Edinburgh.
Please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may
