Violin Tutors

Jocelyn Coates

Jocelyn began learning the violin and the viola at a young age.  She grew up playing in multiple local orchestras and attending holiday chamber music courses, as well as gaining a position in the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain.  She developed a love of ensemble playing.  When studying for her Bachelors degree in Music at King's College London, she  continued playing, joining the Symphony Orchestra and playing in String Quartets and other ensembles.  Following this, Jocelyn gained a Masters in Composition from City, University of London, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire.  

Jocelyn has a portfolio career including performing, composing, and teaching.  She is a member of a barn dance band, playing for events in London and the Southeast, and enjoys teaching the violin at Sutton Music Centre and privately.  In her teaching she works to build good technique and knowledge of theory, so as to increase the enjoyment that playing the violin can bring.

Olivia Moore

After giving my first performance at the age of four, I spent my childhood and teen years playing classical music before going on to explore the art of improvisation. I studied Classical music at Royal Northern College of Music and Jazz at Leeds College of Music. I am inspired by many forms of music and I write my own compositions and string arrangements. Since 2002, I have performed extensively in the UK and internationally with my own fusion groups and various Jazz and Indian Musicians. I have been teaching Western violin for approximately ten years at
Manchester, Salford and Wigan Music Services. I have given Indian workshops and taught at major conservatoires, in schools
and for leading Indian Cultural Organisations in the north of UK.
