Enthusiastic and experienced professional violinist in London with 15 years of teaching experience.
About the lesson
From my own experience, I understand the importance of balancing the teaching of technique, while also bringing the inherent joy of music-making to the forefront.
I have 15 years of experience teaching all ages, both privately and in school, which has included preparing students for ABRSM and Trinity examinations, teaching music theory classes and mentoring students for their A-Level compositions.
During this pandemic, I have also been able to adapt my teaching to fit the needs of the online spectrum including creating backing tracks for my pupils to practice along to, arranging songs for ensembles to work on over Zoom, and hold performances so that pupils, despite being at home, can still work towards an end goal each term and share it with their family and friends.

I earned both my Bachelors and Masters degrees on scholarship from the Royal College of Music studying both Violin Performance and Composition for Screen.
As a professional violinist, composer and arranger, I have written and recorded solo violin for numerous BBC TWO and BBC FOUR series and documentaries, recorded solo violin for several adverts, video games, podcasts and LIFETIME movies that have aired worldwide, and have arranged orchestral tracks for Grammy-award winning artists.
I currently hold teaching posts at three well-respected schools in South Kensington, Hammersmith and Richmond offering 1:1 and small group lessons, as well as ensemble coaching and music theory tutoring.
By far the best music teacher we’ve had. She helped our son Nigel with music theory who was struggling immensely, and Miss Calyssa taught our younger daughter violin who wanted to quit until we changed to Miss Calyssa. Now Ellie is growing, improving leaps and bounds, and it’s her favorite class. We can hardly believe it. Miss Calyssa looks so young, but her wealth of knowledge with music and with teaching kids is unsurpassed. Her creativity and sense of humor makes learning a joy. I’m so thrilled we found her! A lifesaver with her fun remote classes during covid! They both were super engaged! Thank you!
