Information about Jill
COVID-19 Update: now offering in-person and online options for Autumn term tuition and training.
I am a professional concert violist working with London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, English National Opera, and Royal Ballet. I am also a session musician recording film scores for Netflix, the BBC, and popular films/series such as The Crown, Downton Abbey, Dr. Who, Emma and others. I teach violin, viola, and Music Theory students of all levels, as well as cello and keyboard students up to ABRSM grade 4 or equivalent.
Availability: In light of COVID-19 I am offering both in-person sessions and the option for remote sessions via video conference. Students and clients have sessions either once or twice per week. Please contact me for specific availability.
Remote tuition offers the flexibility to learn from anywhere and is especially popular with students/clients who travel for work. Even after the COVID-19 situation eases, I will continue offering remote options for my clients and students.

Feedback For Jill (2)
Jill tutored my daughter for her GCSE music. Jill was knowledgeable, friendly and reliable teacher. Jill with her structured approach, instilled confidence for her GCSE music . Definitely would recommend JIll.
I am an older "improving" viola player being taught by Jill. She is a reliable, efficient and an excellent teacher. My on-line lessons are well structured and enjoyable. Jill is encouraging me to be a more reflective player as well as re-establishing a good technique. I get email feedback and homework after every lesson. I am so encouraged and can`t wait to practice every day!
