I love to teach music!
Getting to know me:
I am the founder of the music service Teach Tutti. Teach Tutti provides lessons to students learning any instrument, at any age, and any standard throughout London. Our teachers are qualified, experienced and enthusiastic. Teachers focus on making sure the student enjoys their lessons while progressing on their instrument and reaching their personal targets.
I want to make music accessible to everyone and I am currently expanding Teach Tutti to include online lessons with students from anywhere in the world.
Teaching music has been my life for the past seven years. I've taught the violin and piano to students aged from 4-70 years old. Most of my students choose to take instrumental and theory exams which I help them to prepare thoroughly for. I teach students of a wide range of experience and ability.
In my private teaching, I've always taken a relaxed approach to lessons. If you're not enjoying the lesson then I'm not doing my job! I tailor my lessons to individual students and make sure I explain everything clearly. I take the same approach in my Udemy courses
I have taught at primary schools throughout London. I've given online lessons using Skype. My teaching work includes time at Merton Music Foundation and Lewisham Music Service. There have even been times when I've taught 30 eight years old at once (gulp!).

“My son started violin and piano tuition with Liam Hindson in Autumn 2013. I have been exceptionally happy with the style of tuition and the progress made. For Violin, my son was already working toward his Grade 3 which he has since passed with merit. He is enjoying working toward his Grade 4. Liam is very effective at breaking down tricky passages of the music and offering advice on ways to practice to improve confidence and overall progress with each piece. For piano, my son was new to the instrument and I have liked the very patient and encouraging way in which Liam has taught each step, as they have been working through Grade 1 pieces."
"Liam has been teaching my daughter for over a year now. I've been very happy with the progress that my daughter has made, who's now working towards her grade 2 exam. Liam's very friendly and approachable, and my daughter always looking forward to lessons with him. I sit in on all of their lessons so I can see that he is always constructive when he makes a suggestion about my daughter's playing. He also always asks her questions so she understands what they're talking about. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for fun, rewarding, and quality violin lessons."
“Liam is teaching Yasmeen how to play on the violin, as well as how to read music. Liam is great teacher. He is calm, patient, funny, reliable, trustworthy, very likable. He makes Yasmeen feel special and talented. He is very motivating and is able to keep my daughter focused for the duration of lesson- 45 minutes, without any problem (and that is not an easy task). I consider Liam Hindson to be an excellent teacher and I am very happy to have this opportunity to know him as a person and teacher."
