Russ is an experienced teacher, having begun his teaching journey over 20 years ago in the Middle East before returning to the UK in the early 2000's, basing himself in Brighton . He taught violin and viola with the East Sussex Music Service for 18 years, and has extensive experience teaching individuals and small groups (in person and via online platforms), coaching string orchestras and chamber music groups from beginner to advanced levels. Russ is highly adaptable, ensuring that his approach is tailored to give his students the best outcomes by maximising their enjoyment of learning to express themselves musically. When not teaching, Russ is an active performer, playing with groups throughout the South East and beyond. His principal non-musical passions centre around cats, coffee and tea.
