Information about Leo
I have recently moved from South Africa to the UK and am planning to settle permanently. In South Africa I enjoyed a very successful career as string teacher, and as Head of Music at Diocesan College in Cape Town. While studying at the University of Cape Town I won several performing awards including the I Musicanti Chamber Music scholarship, the Stephanie Garnett Music Prize and second prize at the Adcock Ingram competition. I was principal violist in the SA National Youth Orchestra as well as in the Stellenbosch University String Ensemble. I also have coached and conducted the University of Cape Town String ensemble as well as the Diocesan College String Orchestra. Under my tuition at Diocesan College twelve of my pupils won major scholarships. My teaching expertise was acknowledged countrywide, with invitations to present my paper, Violin and Viola Teaching Methodology, at St Johns College to Directors of Music Departments from across South Africa.
Availability: I am available to teach any time of day.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have taught violin/viola to prep and high school learners at Diocesan College for 12 years as well as privately for 20 years. I also taught and managed the Kodaly Music school for strings in Cape Town for several years. Chamber music is my favourite form of performing.
My expertise covers all age groups including adult beginners.
