Violin and fiddle lessons from friendly and qualified young teacher in Glasgow

About the lesson

Who am I? Hello! I’m Isla Ratcliff, a 22-year-old Scottish traditional fiddle player, singer, composer, classical violinist, classical pianist, community music practitioner and instrumental teacher with a DipABRSM Teaching Diploma with Distinction (90% pass). I am currently in my first year of a 2-year Masters degree in Scottish traditional music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland while working part-time teaching and gigging.

What do I teach? I teach Scottish traditional fiddle and classical violin.

Who do I teach? I teach individual lessons for children of all abilities and experiences.

Where do I teach? I teach at your house if you live in the West End or City Centre.

What do I charge? First lesson free. Then £25 for 30 mins; £30 for 45 mins; £35 for 1 hour. These prices reflect the fact that I hold a DipABRSM Teaching Diploma with Distinction and are in line with Musicians’ Union recommendations.

Testimonials:
- Mother of 8-year-old student after one lesson: ‘We always had to push our daughter to practise, but this week she has been asking me every day if she can please practise violin.’
- 11-year-old student after three lessons: ‘I just wanted to let you know that when I first started violin I hated it, but now I really enjoy it.’
- Mother of 10-year-old student after three lessons: ‘Just wanted to let you know that my daughter performed the first tune you taught her at a school showcase today. She is normally very shy and rarely performs but she got up on stage on her own and was really confident! I am so pleased she is enjoying learning the folk tunes with you.’
- 22-year-old student: ‘Brilliant teacher, very professional and a lovely person.’
- 36-year-old student: ‘Isla has successfully restored my ability to play, and has found a suitable method to myself. She is extremely patient, clear and makes you feel at your ease. I am more than glad to have chosen her as my teacher and I could not recommend her highly enough.’

What is my teaching methodology? I tailor each lesson to suit the needs of each individual student. My teaching method is influenced by my personal experience of learning through the Suzuki method, the research that I have conducted on the positive impact of music on our mental wellbeing, and the teaching methodologies that I learned for my DipABRSM Teaching Diploma. I value the importance of praise, fun and hard work. Music is an enjoyable activity!

I look forward to teaching you!

About Isla

1. I achieved a DipABRSM Teaching Diploma with Distinction (90% pass) in July 2018.
2. I taught 20 private students in Edinburgh between November 2017 and August 2018. My students thoroughly enjoyed their lessons and improved quickly.
3. I was Assistant Teacher at Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin for 9-18 year olds in April 2016.
4. I was Volunteer Music Teacher at Tender Talents Magnet School in August-September 2014, a music school for vulnerable children in Kasangati, Uganda. I taught violin and music theory, led choir rehearsals, and founded and conducted Tender Talents Symphony Orchestra. In total, I taught 31 students aged 7-18. By the end of the month, my students were visibly happier and more confident, both in their musical abilities and in their personal lives.
5. I was Assistant Teacher at a Suzuki violin group class for 4-16 year olds in March-October 2012.
