“Fiona makes violin amazing! I love and enjoy coming to her lessons”  Ramona, age 10

“Fiona has reignited our daughter’s love of violin. She enjoys her lessons so much, she even wanted to have one on her birthday! Through Fiona’s patient, friendly, fun approach, our daughter has gained in confidence and ability, and most importantly enjoyment. Getting a distinction in her first violin grade exam was the icing on the cake!”  Rosie

“Fiona’s brilliant experience of musical styles and settings have made my lessons really enjoyable.  Our lessons adapt to my interests. In a short amount of time, my playing has expanded to a huge range of fiddle tunes and techniques.”  Anthony
