Who are the top teachers in England now
Anyone knows who are the top violin teachers in England now.?
I suspect this question is essentially unanswerable as put.
Paul, you know no mercy!
Kylie, I'm sure the question cannot be answered like that. One might be able to answer it more specifically, like about the most sought after / prestigious and best looking in your CV teachers, or by whom you'd have to be accepted as a student to have the best chances to make it on the market (which would imply a heavy selection bias).
You really nead to offer some clarification here. Age, skill level, experience, location within England/UK, personality will all have a role to play.
Most sought after and to produce more sololist
I saw your blog post that said "We are moving to London", with this question. Does that mean that you're a parent, looking for a teacher for your child? How old / how advanced in your child?
Yes, Lydia you are right, we are the parents, The teacher doesn’t have network in England.
The teacher asked her friends there, unfortunately and fortunately they want to take my child as their students, not recommend others.
Kylie, I agree with Lydia. If you needed a high-powered teacher, you'd know who they are.
Maybe you need to explain yourself more fully and precisely. To measure a teacher's worth solely by the notion that they "produce more sololist" suggests either that you need to give this matter a great deal more thought or that you're trolling us. Teachers of the top rank aren't simply servants for hire.
The most famous teacher in England is probably Simon Fischer.
I don't know but the Menuhin School might be a good resource.
Menuhin school teachers are very famous. The famous teachers at royal college and royal academy. There are many fantastic teacherS at all the big schools.
How old is your child? What is your child playing now? Are they currently studying with a teacher who typically launches students into solo careers? What makes you believe that your child is currently on a pre-professional soloist trajectory?
Don't put your daughter on the stage Mrs Worthington! Presumably they'd enjoy a Saturday school? CYM and the academies.
More interestingly, how much do the top teachers in England charge?
I was told those 3 in RCM is good, Maciej Rakowski, Itzhak Rashkovsky, Ani Schnarch, anyone knows them?
A semi-retired pro violinist who plays in one of my orchestras told me that when he was a student at the Guildhall School of Music some 30 or so years ago one of his teachers also taught at the RAM, and another taught at the RCM. In effect, teachers seem to have been shared between those three London colleges in those days. Does this still happen? It would ensure that students at all three graduate at the same level and makes nonsense of one college implying that it is superior to another, maybe so in the eyes of the public but certainly not where it matters.
Kylie, those are all very famous and rakovsky is Nicola bendettis teacher and she obviously plays fantastic.
Weird that Kyle has not answered the question, first raised by Jack but also detailed by Lydia, of what level is the student at.
Those 3 teachers were suggested by a very well known violin soloist who had given my child Masterclass last year, which means definitely the standard those teachers suit my child. I believe they are very good teacher, but just need hear more people who knows their teaching style, characters etc then I can get more ideas who probably suit my child more so I can contact them to have a consultant lesson.
What I found out, different teacher have different teachings this, strength and weakness areas. Probably suit some students perfectly, but not others. If students don’t have lessons with them for a while, it is hard to know. In case to take risk, waste time, it is better to focus possibly right one so before make decision, need hear from other people what they say.
