Exceptional and very patient teacher. I was a "mature student" who had never touched a violin before but was immediately put at ease with a tailored training programme that focused on the type of music I enjoy. Most recommended!!!
"Iona is a passionate, dedicated and highly intelligent individual who has the ability to make what seems impossible, possible. Her lessons are fun and tailored perfectly to the needs of the student."
"My daughter has been taking songwriting lessons with Iona and she has progressed so much with her guidance! I cannot recommend her enough."
"Iona is a very patient and fantastic violin teacher! My 6 year old son loves her lessons and looks forward to them every week. He has learnt violin so quickly and I am grateful for all Iona’s help"

✨So you want to learn how to be a music producer?✨
Whether you're a total beginner who has never opened a DAW before (e.g. Logic Pro) and is here to learn the basics, an intermediate looking to brush up their skills and push their craft to the next level, or an expert looking for tips, tricks, and a different perspective, I am here to help.
What is music production?
At its simplest, music production is the careful and beautiful creative process of capturing and showcasing the raw recordings of a track, arranging them in the sonic sphere in such a way that a listener can truly connect with the artist's intention.
More complexly, it can build an intriguing world of sound around the core songwriting elements through synthesis and sound design, extra recorded or MIDI instruments, field sounds, and piles of SFX and plugins such as reverbs, delays, pitch shifts, EQ's, compressors, distortions, and more, surrounding the listener with energetic aural intricacies.
I teach all of this and more, from how to use music production software and put sounds together, leading through to how to create successful fully produced and mixed music projects.
I'm ready to learn, what now?
