Master in Performance (distinction) from the Royal College of Music, London – Bachelors of Music (II/i) from the Royal College of Music, London.

From a young age I went to a specialised music school in England; Purcell School, before making my way to the Royal College of Music (RCM) in London. I have gained experience working under the renowned Russian professor Natalia Boyarsky, doing a teacher training course at the RCM and numerous workshops as well as teaching privately for over seven years to pupils of all ages and abilities and becoming the violin tutor at Prince’s Gardens prep school (PGP) in London in 2019.

My first taster in teaching came thanks to my wonderful professor Natalia Boyarsky. She encouraged her students to teach and would assign young pupils (five-twelve) with her older pupils (sixteen and upwards) during her summer music courses. We were challenged to achieve certain goals such as have the younger pupil be performance ready after three lessons. This taught us how to verbalise the mechanics of violin playing simply and coherently, which in turn also reminded us of the basics. The phrase ‘if you can not explain it simply, you do not understand it well enough’ springs to mind. Following that, I decided to take a specialised teaching module during my second year at the RCM. I did a placement at Avonmore Primary School which entailed performances, speeches introducing classical music and instruments, group lessons, and one-to-one lessons with pupils aged from five to eleven. Throughout my degree I continued to accumulate private pupils and learn from them whilst teaching them.

At PGP I works with beginners aged five to eleven and have successfully prepared them for ABRSM Music Medals. Furthermore I am currently undergoing ABRSM Music Medal Teacher-Assessor Training as well as familiarising myself with the Suzuki Method of teaching. Even though most of my violin playing years revolved around the Russian school of playing, my teaching has an applied combination of different methods and schools of technique to form a more personal, versatile and methodically structured approach for each individual.
A parent of my pupil has described my teaching method as ‘encouraging and detailed’. My aim is to tune, explore, and expand my pupils’ musical enthusiasm and imagination whilst simultaneously setting them up technically to ensure physical wellbeing, dexterity, and ease.

Lastly, I have experience working with children with autism and other special needs. I am also equally comfortable teaching group lessons as well as one-to-one.  In tandem with my violin teachings I have been preparing students for music aural (ear training), music theory, and harmony exams. All my pupils currently have a 100% distinction rate in ABRSM music theory exams. I believe that a rounded musical education is of paramount importance for the development and maintenance of a healthy, happy mind.

HND in Violin and Music theory

Nikolas has been playing the violin from the age of 8 and picked up the piano at the age of 12. After he finished his education in Hungary he moved to London in 2015 to further improve his skills and studied with professor Hu Kun for 5 years. During his time in London he has been an active participant in the East London art scene. He has been involved with multiple art collectives and participated in various fusion art projects such as interactive theatres, visual fine art performances, and various convention breaking acts. He has been looking to find new purposes for his instrument in a modern setting, while keeping the traditional values of it. In his quest to find evernew angles to perform, he had been participating in some unlikely scenarios, such as when he was playing with Buddhist monks from Sri Lanka in the Barbican, or when he was showing new discoveries of balance between the classical sound of violin and industrial noise in Cafe Oto.

He has been teaching both kids, and adults since 2016. Ever since then he has been looking for new and more efficient ways to teach, with the same dedication as he has to his own improvement. His teaching is performance focused and aiming to prepare his pupils both technically and psychologically for their concerts and exams. He is aiming to give the necessary skills to his students to become professional musicians themselves if they wish to do so, but also practical knowledge which is useful for someone’s everyday life as well. The kind of knowledge which is outside of the spectrum of traditional schools such as how to keep focus without getting lost in the details or how to deal with anxiety before an exam or performance or a job interview etc…

He is not only a performer and teacher, but he has been composing music as well. He has been working as a session musician/writer for established studios, and he has immersed himself with classical music from a compositional angle as well. Most lately he has been studying music production to further broaden his tools for his compositions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I expect to pay for Music Tuition?

    There are many factors that affect the price of one-to-one music lessons, such as qualifications, experience, and whether the teacher travels to you or teachers from home. 

    The Musicians’ Union recommends an hourly rate of £35 for music teaching, however, in our experience, this is normally higher in London and you can expect to pay anything from £40-60 per hour.

    Most importantly, you should find the right teacher for you (or your child).

  • Are your teachers CRB checked?

    We don’t verify that teachers on our database are CRB checked, but most music teachers who have worked in the UK school system, will be required to maintain a regular CRB, and will always list it on their profile.

  • What's the typical length of a lesson?

    Lesson length is a common question we get asked.

    The first thing we suggest taking into consideration is the age of the student, we find that younger beginners, can benefit from regular lessons of 30 – 45 Minutes each, as their attention span is less than the typical adult.

  • I'm a Teacher, how can I be listed on your site?

    To be listed as a teacher on our site, please fill out the form on our sign-up page, with all the relevant information completed. A few things we require, up to date pricing, locations, styles.

  • Do you have Teachers outside the North London area?

    As we’re based in North London and we specialise in providing a local service, we are at this time only listing teachers within boroughs in North London, our Teachers list and service coverage will be expanded upon over time.
