  • You cannot find a suitable local teacher
  • You can only fit lessons in at irregular times
  • You need a fresh view on your playing
  • You have been taking lessons with the same teacher for a long time and feel a bit ‘stale’
  • You’d like just one or a few lessons without making a big commitment

At the end of 2015, with eager students requesting and awaiting lessons in London, Asia and the USA, Simon Jordan extended his hugely successful teaching practice with ONE-ON-ONE live violin lessons via SKYPE.

How many lessons do I need?

Most adult students do very well with just one lesson every two weeks. Some do, however, opt for more.


Need just a one-off quick-fix? Fingering? Technique? Rhythm? Then here is your opportunity to book a short consultation with Simon. A 10-minute online one-on-one consultation costs £20 (UK Pounds).

How does it work?

Simon says:

First things first!

You should click HERE to notify me of your interest in FaceTime or Skype lessons. I can then answer any questions you may have and arrange a free test call to make sure that everything is up and running as it should be.


Once we have agreed a mutually convenient time for an initial consultation lesson and you have made the Paypal payment £40 (British Pounds or currency equivalent), I will call you and the lesson can begin. If you elect to continue, lessons are thereafter paid for in advance in blocks of five (ie 5 x £40 = £200) and may be scheduled at whatever frequency you deem appropriate. However, lessons must be concluded within six months of the payment.
