Violin Teacher Simon Jordan
Learn the violin with a highly experienced and versatile teacher
Hello, my name is Simon Jordan, and I am a highly experienced and successful violin and piano teacher of 20 years’ standing. I have a 100% ABRSM and Trinity exam pass rate, and my pupils have gone on to music scholarships to a variety of grammar and public schools, and also the Royal Academy and College of Music. I am an experienced, fun and friendly teacher, and shape my style of teaching to suit each student. I graduated from Bristol University and the Royal Academy of Music, where I was awarded the Violin Prize. I started playing violin at the age of five, and piano at the age of six, and still play professionally around the country and on tour. I worked for the BBC for 18 years, including 13 years as a BBC Radio 3 producer. My studio is in Hughenden Valley, near High Wycombe and Great Missenden, and I have pupils who travel to me from Oxford, Aylesbury and London. Currently I teach in two local schools, and I have pupils aged from 5 to 82. Unlike other teachers, I vary my repertoire and method according to the age and background of the pupil. For instance, I would teach a teenager using jazz and pop idioms, if they so desired, alongside the classical repertoire, with similar success. I am at home teaching Bach and Mozart as I am Beyonce and Einaudi.
