"I have been coming for lessons for 2 years. Simon and Liv both quickly tuned into what I needed in order to improve my technique and have skillfully, patiently and flexibly set about helping me achieve the necessary skills.
Besides being very accomplished musicians themselves, they have very extensive technical knowledge and the ability to deliver knowledge in a way and at the level needed. Both teach with a high level of integrity. Whereas they will challenge you, they are very warm and friendly, which makes the lessons relaxed and enjoyable as well as productive."
"Liv- Thank you for making it so easy to start learning my first ever instrument at the age of 27. Your relaxed yet detailed approach to teaching meant I was always at ease and able to pick up both theory and technique quickly- best of all you made music fun!"
"Thank you for your wonderfully inspiring teaching, not only has my playing improved beyond measure but having not picked up the violin for thirty years I've regained my confidence."
"Thanks very much Liv, never before have I had a teacher provide so much constructive encouragement!"
"Simon, thank you for all your wonderful violin lessons, my goal to play in orchestras has been achieved which is a result of your endless patience."
"With Liv's skilled teaching my weak bow arm was corrected, my technique greatly improved. Liv has a great way of identifying weak points and giving clear solutions in a way that makes lessons fun and worthwhile. I highly recommend Liv as a violin teacher."
"Liv is a first class teacher. She is very patient and possesses a great sense of humour, qualities which contribute to the enjoyment of lessons."
