Testimonial from Euan Cummins

Euan Cummins is a former student of mine at RSAMD (now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).

Mr Gillespie was a great violin teacher for me because of his creative method of teaching and his encouraging attitude towards the violin. The way Mr Gillespie approaches the methods which music can be created and the way he optimizes his students abilities, means I can honestly say that  he was the most inspiring teacher i have had the pleasure to work with.

Testimonial from the parents of a Euan Cummins

This is what the parents to one of my students said:

Our son Euan was taught at the RCS (formerly the RSAMD) by Mr Gillespie for 4 years. He obtained grade 5 violin with distinction, enjoyed performing in a variety of orchestral and solo performances and was working towards his grade 7 violin before we had to move to Brighton for work purposes. Euan benefited greatly from Mr Gillespie’s style of teaching which he enjoyed throughly and he looked forward to every lesson. Under Lamonds tutelage Euan has developed significantly as a player both musically and technically and has remarkable tone and technique for someone so young. We would recommend Lamond Gillespie to anyone seeking a inspirational and gifted violin teacher for their child.
