Mahaliah is a strong believer in high quality music education for everyone. She delivers bespoke music tuition for violin students of a range of abilities from beginner to advanced, starting from age 4+.
Using various pedagogical approaches, her teaching incorporates many musical skills including reading stave notation, developing a musical aural awareness as a base in order to help each student achieve their musical aspirations. Mahaliah focuses on maintaining a positive and imaginative learning environment enabling any student of any ability or age to excel in their lessons and practice at home.
From graded exams to playing for fun, Mahaliah puts the student at the centre of their musical education and tailors lessons to each individual's needs and goals. Furthermore, Mahaliah's teaching repertoire encompasses music of diverse origins and provenances and promotes the love of all music to every student.
