Violin teacher in Greenwich area

Hi Everyone!
I started studying violin when I was 6 and I got a MMus violin at Conservatoire "V.Bellini" Palermo, Italy. I continued my studies moving to London at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
I am enthusiastic and committed to pedagogy and believe it can be very rewarding to both the pupil and teacher when implemented properly. During my studies I depth different teaching techniques comparing them with many good teachers. Having a clear methodology and a structured lesson plan is very important. Some flexibility needs to be built into the lesson plan plus having the ability to recognise and implement alternative teaching methods ensure effective teaching.
My teaching experience has been varied from teaching violin privately to children and even teaching for musical associations, teaching beginner level adults and university students in both a 1:1 and a group teaching setting. I have prepared pupils for admission for the Conservatoire or for violin competitions. As a violinist, I have freelanced with many of the young and professional orchestras in Italy and in England from this year and played with important conductors. I have had several experiences as soloist and leading roles in different orchestras, demonstrating a good capacity to face the most challenging roles. I am committed to playing to the highest professional level and would give equal importance to providing regular education for children at the highest level. I particularly love chamber music and I'd like to convey on to my students the desire to confront each other and socialize with other people through music. I would like to create ensembles and I am able to arrange popular pop and classical music for small groups and pupils of any abilities.
I speak Italian, English and a little bit of French.

Andrea Montalbano

Andrea is an exceptionally gifted young violinist - a real musician with a beautiful tone, firm technical command of his instrument and an instinctive rapport with music in a wide variety of styles. He is friendly and reliable, with an excellent ability to communicate his love of music as well as his own warm personality. I thoroughly recommend Andrea to violin students of all ages.

Excellent Violinist, Leader and Soloist

I am the Musical Director of the London Euphonia Orchestra and I would strongly recommend Andrea as a teacher.

For several months he has been leader of the orchestra, showing a great deal of technical abilities and rare levels of musicality.

He regularly provides his sections with specific and effective technical advice; he is very personable, patient and supportive; his communication skills are also very good and has now developed his relationship with players beyond the string sections.

He has very successfully performed Vaughan Williams' Lark Ascending with LEO, giving further proof of his technical solidity and natural musicality.
