Information about Marion
I am a postgraduate guitar, piano and violin/fiddle teacher teaching popular styles-blues, rock, folk, jazz, and also classical, and music theory-popular, jazz and classical. Pupils of all ages are welcome. I have played in many varied ensembles and bands.
I am flexible and can help you with pieces of your choice, working at your own pace. I can help with theory or exams.
I ensure that my pupils are well prepared for all aspects of their exams if they choose to take them, and I also endeavour to help my pupils with good posture and technique which is a pre-requisite for success.
I maintain a strong dialogue with parents regarding their children`s h/w, aims and achievements.

Experience: I have taught a wide range of pupils from aged 3 upwards and have worked with `special needs` students. I teach left handed players. I am qualified in childcare and have some special needs training. I completed 3 modules and a dissertation in music education at Kingston University. I teach face to face and online.
From Nickolai (5/5): I`m very happy with Marion`s teaching method. She took the time to figure out what style I`d like to learn and recommended the book we could start with. I was able to start reading the music of the sheets after only 3 classes with her. I enjoy our violin sessions of playing together, there`s still much to learn but she makes it seem very easy.
From Alex (5/5): Marion is an excellent tutor. Incredibly knowledgeable in both the theory and practical elements of learning to play guitar. We started from not being able to play at all and Marion methodically took us through a lot of the basic techniques and concepts of the instrument. Very accommodating in terms of song choices too. Marion clearly knows her stuff and would work equally well for beginners but also for more experienced players.
From Danielle (5/5): Marion is teaching my 4 year old, she has totally engaged her, which with a four-year-old is very difficult; it is difficult for her to sit still. Will recommend.
