Testimonials :Ruth is an excellent teacher and creates rapport very quickly with students of all ages. She instinctively knows how to draw out their musical talents, using her varied and creative methods and an holistic approach to build confidence and skills. Her lessons are enjoyable, good humoured and concentrate on the positives whilst always remaining challenging. In 2.5 years of instruction, as an adult beginner, I have achieved 4 distinctions in theory and practical exams - something I could never have previously dreamed I would be capable of. Ruth has truly opened up the world of music to me and I know it will be a life long passion - I only wish I'd started years ago! I have every confidence she can do the same for you or your child.- Kate S

My daughter has learning difficulties, and had no confidence. She has been learning violin online with Ruth for a year now. Her progress has been very impressive, from not knowing anything about a violin to passing her grade 3, with distinction in under a year. Ruth comes across as a very caring and passionate teacher. The way she puts methods across is fantastic. this his having a positive effect on our daughters progress in all areas. Angela

Ruth taught music at Simon Langton Girls School, Canterbury for 6 years while I was Director of Music. I would recommend her highly as a teacher and a performer. She is a very able teacher with a lively attractive personality, she builds good relationships with her pupils whether talented or not and gains excellent results through her enthusiasm and obvious expertise in both teaching and performing. At our school, she ran a weekly ensemble and single-handedly organized concerts in her own time. Many of her pupils passed their examinations with high distinctions then applied to music college or studied music at university and some are now well known successful professional musicians.
