Roland Herrera

I studied with a pupil of Mikhail Vaiman, therefore my teaching closely follows the St. Petersburg school of string playing. I specialise in solo Bach and French classical Etude or Concerto repertoire up to and including Dont Op.35 or Wieniawski Ecole Moderne Op.10 I performed 15 years as a freelance professional I live in Bristol, England, Europe. All inquiries welcome ; a trial lesson should confirm my enthusiasm for clarifying efficient technique. I also like to explain to students "why"... the pros. and cons. of every position and movement, so they can apply the knowledge and adapt it to their own needs. By technique I am including tone production, legato playing, as well as the obvious benefits, such as deft left hand passage work. In teaching children I involve them in a musical atmosphere.. young children often need help with expression, as well as the technique to project a sweet yet powerful tone. I teach students of all ages and levels, including Post graduate work. Please visit my site "Westbury Park Strings" for more details.
