Information about Kirsty

Violin, viola and music theory teacher based in London and originally from Edinburgh. I studied my undergraduate degree in violin performance at the Royal Northern College of Music, and then went on to study for a masters degree in Historically Informed Performance Practice at the University of Glasgow (in conjunction with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).

I enjoy a busy freelance performance career, including both classical and session work, where I have recently performed with the Scottish Concert Orchestra, the Kellie Consort (a baroque ensemble), and the Rogue Orchestra - who recently recorded for Jon Fratelli`s upcoming album.

With a passion for delivering the highest quality of music education to pupils of all ages and abilities, I have a wealth of experience of violin and music tuition as detailed below. I am particularly committed to making lessons and performance opportunities an enjoyable and fun experience, whilst still helping students to achieve their potential and play at the highest level.

Currently based in Scotland and relocating to London in January 2018 - lessons available from then onwards.
