Cheltenham violin teacher musician

Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Rachel, I am a Cheltenham based violin teacher. I have studied the violin for over 20 years and graduated in BA (Hons) Music with 2:1. Along with teaching, I am training to qualify as a Music Therapist. 

My teaching style is simple, I am passionate about the violin and I want you to enjoy the instrument as much as I do. I offer one-to-one private lessons, allowing quality time to develop technique and musical skills with the repertoire of your choice. I might jump in and play a duet with you every now and again - the teacher has to have some fun too!


I teach all ages at all levels, so whether you or your child are a complete beginner or revisiting the instrument, I have experience of adapting lessons to any level. I have experience in working through exams, but if you would like to learn exam-free, I welcome this too! Lessons take place at my home in Prestbury, Cheltenham.

I am the violinist for Hear The Spheres and we regularly perform around Gloucestershire at gigs, weddings, events and festivals. I am also available for solo/session work.

Please note: I am now fully booked, and unable to take on new students at this time. If you are interested in lessons and would like to be added to a waiting list, please get in touch.
