Learn the Violin

Why learn with me?

I am a very experienced professional violinist and teacher, teaching pupils of all ages and abilities. Having been very well trained myself, I very much enjoy being able to draw on my musical knowledge and experience to instruct and inspire my pupils.

I teach the violin from beginners to advanced (Grade 8 and beyond).

I hold a current Enhanced DBS Certificate.

I treat every pupil as an individual and tailor my teaching methods to suit each person. I like to incorporate some aural training and theory of music into music lessons to encourage a good, general musical knowledge. My pupils start to read music from the very first lesson.

This photo shows two of my pupils who gained very high distinctions in their
ABRSM exams getting ready to perform at a Wiltshire High Scorers’ Concert.

1. Very experienced teacher

I have been teaching violin for over 30 years in schools, colleges and universities as well as privately from my home.

2. Excellent pass rates

My students have achieved a 100% pass rate in their music exams and many have passed with very high grades. I can prepare them for either ABRSM or Trinity exam boards.

3. Learn for Fun

I am equally happy to prepare students of all ages for exams or to teach those who simply want to learn for fun.

Tuition fees:

I offer competitive prices. Lessons can be paid for, either in advance or immediately after each lesson, by cash or bank transfer.


Since covid, most of my lessons have been taking place online, using either Skype or FaceTime. This is proving to be a very successful and popular, reducing travel for busy parents and students.


Gift vouchers are available for lessons and can make very good presents.




£36 – 60 mins

£27.50  45 mins

£19 – 30 mins

Cancellation Policy: I ask for 24 hours’ notice to cancel a lesson, otherwise a full fee may be charged.

“Great teacher with tremendous attention to detail”

“I started as an adult beginner with Nicolette two years ago. She is a great teacher with a tremendous attention to detail who always challenges me to improve in every aspect of my playing.

A huge part of my development is Nicolette’s superb guidance and support. Overall it’s been a great experience learning with Nicolette and I can highly recommend her!”
