Violin lessons

Violin lessons for children and students who aspire professional career in music. Preparation for festivals, competitions, and auditions (RAM, RCM, The Purcell School or Yehudi Menuhin School etc.).

If you and your child are committed to hard work which could give him or her a chance to study in one of the UK's finest music schools one day, then you have found one of the best violin teachers to prepare you for that.

My name is Aiste and I'm a professional violinist with more than twenty years of international performing and teaching experience. My lessons take place in Hampton. As of September 2018, I also started working at The Purcell School as a Music Specialist Teacher of Violin. 

I have three Master of Music degrees (MMus):
  • Violin Solo (performing)
  • Chamber Orchestra (performing)
  • Violin Teaching

Throughout my career, I have been specialising in teaching children and that requires a lot of patience and perseverance from all parties: the child, the teacher and, most importantly, the parents. Although it is important to have fun during the lessons and I do reward my pupils for good job, my work is result orientated.

It all starts from developing good basics techniques, posture, hold – all that they will need in the future should they consider a career as a professional musician. Some of my students started from as early as 4 years and have now won prizes at the international music competitions.

Below are the three types of students I work with:

  • Early age
    • focus on musicality
    • building solid basic violin techniques
  • Musically talented school children
    • expanding repertoire
    • intensive preparation for competitions, festivals and other public performances
    • preparation for auditions (RAM, RCM, the Purcell school, the Menuhin School etc.)
    • ABRSM grades in parallel (if students prefer)
  • Undergraduate and postgraduate students
    • advise on repertoire and performing
    • masterclasses and chamber music
