I am and have been a violin and music teacher for approximately 35 years. I currently teach on a self-employed basis in 9 schools per week and teach several students privately at home. I love most genres and have more recently been involved with folk playing though still teach classical. Indeed, I am now teaching folk students, but include the all important grounding of good thorough classical techniques.
I live with my husband (we married just over two years ago) who is a folk musician. We each have children and my youngest daughter is expecting my third grandchild - if you see what I mean! I am just about to publish a book, and will probably follow that with publishing fellow teachers' music books. Maybe this will take up more of my time in future. I recently started a band in which there is a 4 violin/fiddle line-up... yay!
