Accredited The O'Connor Method-A New American School of String Playing.
I have been playing music all my life-violin since age 14 and am a performer in fiddle genres for more than 40 years. A fixture in the Australian fok scene and a peripatetic fiddle teacher the last 10 years, I have been enjoying spreading the love of string playing recently and taking students through AMEB exam grades with excellent results.Recently I discovered one of my violin heros,Mark O’Connor,had put together a new teaching method for strings.In July I went to America to become accredited and achieved fundamental training in Books I&II.Next July I shall return to complete intermediate -Books III/IV and advanced Book V (pending publication. I am truly inspired by The O’Connor Method and excited to be involved in the pioneering stage of helping bring it to Australia.
I teach violin,viola and cello and these are also incorporated with the orchestra books to match.
