I charge £30 an hour. So 1/2 hr individual lessons are £15 each week.  As students advance they have 3/4hr and then eventually 1hr.  I teach throughout the school term times.

Group workshops and Concerts

The cost for 3 or 4 x 3/4 hr group lessons + the concert is an additional £25-£30 per term.  All students are expected to attend group lessons as well as their individual lessons.

If you need to miss a lesson please give me as much notice as possible as I have to charge for lessons with less than 24hrs notice.  If I miss a lesson I will try to rearrange but if that’s not possible you will of course not be charged.  You are welcome to pay in advance, in installments as we go along or at at the end of each term.


A well set up violin with a good set of strings on will cost between £60-£100.  You can hire nice violins from Devon music services for £10 per month. You can find more details about buying or renting violins here.  Please don’t buy any instruments until I have measured you up for one and advised you on where to get one.  Even music shops can get sizes of violins wrong!

Music and BSI membership

As Suzuki students, you will also need to buy the Suzuki Book and CD (about £15) and become members of the British Suzuki Institute (family membership costs £32 but I discount concerts and groups for members to about half price so you get your money back).
