The 'Violin with Helen' String Academy is based in North Reading, Berkshire, UK, and provides adults and children age 4+ with a comprehensive and exceptional music education. Teaching is based around the Suzuki philosophy, and students are encouraged to reach their potential in a warm and nurturing environment.

Students of Violin with Helen have performed for a number of high profile events, including private performances for well-known celebrities and artists from the film, television and music industries, as well as festivals, competitions and charity performances. A number of students have also been members of the National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain, regional youth orchestras, the Royal Academy of Music, and the Royal College of Music. They also hold a number of music scholarships, regularly place highly in regional and national competitions, and routinely achieve the highest results in their ABRSM, LCM and

Trinity music exams. 

Christmas Group Concert 2021

Each group performed a selection of Christmas carols, and solo items to a small audience. The concerts were also professionally filmed so that family members could enjoy from home.
