Vaughan Jones, the founder and violinist/arranger with Manor House Music also offers violin, viola and piano lessons in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas in south Bedfordshire and west Hertfordshire. Vaughan is a friendly and encouraging teacher who aims to unlock the joy of music-making in every student by nurturing their general musicianship as well as encouraging a tension free approach to playing. He guides each student towards a way of playing, free from physical and mental blocks, opening up the possibility of a deeper connection with the music. Performance anxieties and exam pressures are eased through the inner impulses of singing and the development of mental focus in performance allied to a precise understanding of violin technique. Indeed, the benefits of such an approach extend far outside the field of music, from increased co-ordination to improved concentration. As a pupil of Kato Havas OBE, Vaughan is an advocate of her New Approach to violin playing.
Vaughan teaches pupils from 7 years old upwards and is able to teach all standards, from complete beginners to experienced musicians at conservatoire level (diploma and post-Grade 8 standard). He is familiar with the syllabuses of both the ABRSM and Trinity violin exams and can additionally prepare students up to Grade 5 theory as well as Grade 8 aural tests.
