We have a teacher from City London Centre of Music for our children for quite a some time now. One of my sons is doing Grade 5 ABRSM. We will recommend the teacher for his patience, level of professionalism and courtesy with his teaching to any prospective students. All the violin lessons have always been conducted in our home.
