Mobile: 07904316033

Since starting to teach in the UK, I have helped over 40 students attain music scholarships and my students consistently achieve excellent results in their music exams – both with ABRSM and Trinity – all the way through to diploma level as well and music competitions, music festivals and music university preparation. I also offer online music theory classes on Zoom or in person.

I was inspired to start sharing my experience and understanding of music by my mother (also a violin, viola and piano teacher!). She always made them laugh and enjoy music while still imparting valuable knowledge with everything she said. She also took the time to organise recitals for them which I feel is very important as well and regularly organise concerts for my students to perform in.

I was born in Canada and first started playing violin at age five as part of a musical family. Both my father and grandfather come from strong Hungarian traditions of violin playing going back to Jenö Hubay. At the age of just sixteen, I was accepted into the professional performance diploma programme at the renowned Music University of Vienna, where I received training with Prof. Jan Pospichal (concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony) and graduated with first class honours in 2007.

Extensive solo and orchestra performances throughout Germany, Austria, Italy, China, Japan, Canada and many other countries, as well as solo electric violin tours, have provided me with a wealth of experience as a versatile soloist and chamber musician. Having also studied with György Pauk (Royal Academy of Music), Gyula Stuller (Haute Ecole de Musique, Lausanne) and Marina Sorokova has given me a broad technical and musical background.

In 2012, I also completed a MA in Music Industry Management in London to complement my previous music studies, having discovered a strong interest in the managerial aspect of music. However, throughout my studies and performances I have always loved teaching and now teach at the North London Conservatoire, where I also enjoy my role of organising over 200 concerts per year for students. I also teach in schools throughout London and the South East, having lived in Sutton, Haywards Heath, and now Eastbourne over the past 10 years. I continue to enjoy performing both with my acoustic and electric violin in concerts, and always try to find some time for designing and sewing clothes, reading and cooking.

Violin and Classical and Traditional Strings Tutor

07858 674781 / /

My name is Adam Phillips and I have been tutoring violin/Celtic fiddle/viola/jazz violin/music theory and electric violin for almost ten years. Recently, I asked my students to sum my approach up in three words. They described me as being collaborative, friendly and inspiring. I believe in emphasising the positive in students’ playing through a student-centred approach. Originally from the Grampian Highlands, I am based in Eastbourne and can teach all over Sussex and Kent. I offer Skype lessons and ‘live in’ lessons for those who cannot leave their home.
Other benefits include:-

Adam is a direct descendant of the 18th century Scottish composer and fiddler William Marshall who is credited as creating ‘the first Strathspeys of the age’. Adam’s mixed Basque and Austro-Hungarian lineage has given him a natural affinity with both traditional and classical violin music.

After completing his studies at College, Adam took masterclasses with International soloist and Menuhin student Leland Chen who was to have a considerable influence on his own playing. At these classes, Adam played Beethoven’s Spring Sonata and the virtuoso work Legende by Wieniawski. Other tutors included Professor Gillian Findlay of Trinity College and briefly Angus Ramsey of Scottish Opera.

Adam was one of the last people to pass the ALCM in violin teaching exam in its tougher format before it became a stipulation for potential candidates to carry a performer’s qualification. He also carries a pass in Grade 8 music theory. Last but not least Adam has a performer’s Diploma and is hoping to complete a post grad at the RCM.
