Helen Griffiths Teaching Career - Professional Violin Teacher in Birmingham Area

Teaching Experience

I am a professional violinist and studied with Rodney Friend and Hugh Bean at the Royal College of Music where I gained Dips R.C.M Performer and Teacher.

Alongside my playing career, I have 25 years teaching experience and have taught for the Croyden Music Service, the Hertfordshire Music Service and the Junior Birmingham Conservetoire and have taken part in projects for Key Stage 1,2 and 3 through performances with the C.B.S.O. Many of my pupils have gone on to enjoy playing at an amateur and professional level.


I strongly believe music is for everyone regardless of background, culture or status. I'd like to offer people from all walks of life the opportunity to learn and enjoy music.

I not only put emphasis on teaching pupils how to play the violin but I also  focus on and incorporate history of music and the violin, aural and theory so that students gain a complete and rounded approach to music.

For beginners and younger pupils I encourage parental participation in my lessons. ABRSM examinations can be followed where appropriate. I also prepare students for Duke of Edinburgh Awards, 11 plus entrance exams and advanced and diploma levels. I also offer preparation for music college entrance exams and orchestral auditions.

For more advanced students, consultation lessons are available for technical problems such as vibrato and bow technique. I have a CRB Certificate which is available for inspection upon request.
