Teachers

Kentish Suzuki teachers work independently of each other and come together as one big group for concerts and other events. If you are interested in studying with a particular teacher, it is advised to contact that teacher directly.

Hildenborough:

Sarah McKenzie-Jones

ESA Level 2 Suzuki Violin

Sarah studied violin in New Zealand as a child with Lois Bognuda, an early adopter of the Suzuki Method. Although she studied Piano, Violin and music theory through all the standard grades and beyond as a child she was instead lured into the world of science. After achieving a Masters degree in Biochemistry in New Zealand, she travelled to the UK where she launched a career in computer programming. After a decade of working in the city, she was swept up by the world of baby signing upon having her own children, and brought Sing and Sign to Greater Bromley. Once her two children began their own adventures in the Suzuki Method, Sarah decided to train as a Suzuki violin teacher.
