Violinist | Electric Violinist | Violist | Arranger


I am available for teaching the Violin and Viola ranging from beginners to advanced level for all ages! I also offer Music Theory lessons.

I’m based in West London, but lessons can also be online too.

Having experience in teaching all the way up to grade 8, as well as leading a range of musical ensembles of different sizes, Pippa recognises that everyone learns differently and can adapt her teaching style towards each student, whether that be through different approaches or other repertoire.

30 / 45 / 60 minute lessons

Violin and Viola Lessons

-instrumental technique
-sight reading
-work towards grade exams
-expand repertoire list
-prepare for live performances
-help with music theory
-practice other music (eg orchestra parts)
-play lots of genres

Going at a pace suitable for each individual student is really important – practicing instrumental technique using different exercises and focusing on learning and understanding sheet music notation which is crucial in progressing with the violin/viola in the long run.

Music Theory Lessons

-basic music theory introduction

-reading different clefs, key signatures and time signatures


-arranging/orchestrating music

-basic composition

-work towards ABRSM theory exams to go alongside instrumental practice

Pippa is honest, hard-working, communicative, punctual, and good-natured; she is also a very fine musician. I feel confident that she is an excellent music teacher, and that her new students would greatly appreciate her positive attitude and warm-heartedness.

Pippa Griffin is an inspiring teacher and has always been supportive to her peers on her undergraduate course. She is extremely well organised, an excellent time keeper, a highly skilled violinist and has great creative insights. Her final year project demonstrated not only a very high standard of performance on violin, but excellent teamworking skills. I wholeheartedly recommend Pippa Griffin.
