Katrina McWilliams LRSM DipABRSM

Katrina provides one-to-one violin tuition for children, teenagers and adults,
and enjoys helping pupils progress through the exam grades of the
Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

Preparation for ABRSM Grades 1-8 includes guidance for the aural tests -
a requirement of the exam at each grade.

Katrina is also happy to give lessons simply for pleasure, and can cover
all kinds of repertoire from Baroque to contemporary.

Theory and piano lessons for ABRSM Grades 1-5 are also available.

 Violin Lessons for Ages 4 to 7

Katrina is highly experienced at teaching very young children, and is happy to take on pupils from the age of 4. Katrina is a strong believer in teaching children to read notation properly and ensuring they develop good technique and playing posture.

Lessons are presented in a fun manner (one little girl refers to aural tests as “games”) and cover musical terms, playing duets, aural training and singing.

Positive side-effects of starting lessons at a young age and practising regularly include improved concentration, thoroughness, reading and co-ordination.

Most five-year-olds who start learning the violin with Katrina then achieve ABRSM Grade 2 standard before they reach junior school.

 Violin Lessons for Adults

Katrina is also well-accustomed to teaching adults - those who are absolute beginners, people who are musically literate but are learning the violin as a new instrument, and those who are resuming lessons after
many years.

Understanding how nerve-wracking it can be as an adult(!) Katrina is friendly and approachable, and does her best to make you feel at ease.

You are welcome to study for music exams if you wish, or lessons can be just for pleasure. Katrina finds people particularly enjoy the opportunity of playing with piano accompaniment and learning violin duets in their lessons.
