Magic Music School provides quality music lessons in violin, piano and music theory. Gundula is a highly experienced and qualified tutor with more than 20 years experience in teaching violin, piano, leading ensembles and more. She holds an enhanced DBS certificate. Tuition takes place at a teaching studio in Kingsbury (NW9) - 3min walk from Kingsbury Station, or online.

My philosophy:

An instrument is a companion in your life, and the way you are taught how to master it can make a real difference. We are driven by our love for music and the fulfilment it brings to us. Learning an instrument is real hard work, and finding a way to enjoy that hard work is our secret recipe.

We are dedicated to helping students create a positive learning cycle for themselves and supporting them in overcoming any difficulties they may encounter. The ultimate result is the joy you feel once the skill is mastered, allowing you to indulge in playing with a new level of ease and fun.​
