Bachelor of Teaching (Primary and Secondary) with Honours, B. Biomed, AMUSA, LMUSA, Masters in Gifted Education
Hello Students and Parents,
I have been teaching the violin for many years and through this time have assisted hundreds of students as they work towards AMEB exams, scholarships and competitions.
In the past 10 years, I have had 37 students receive scholarships to prestigious private schools and many hundreds achieve outstanding results at competitions and AMEB exams alike.
I am a qualified primary and secondary school teacher, so my ability to relate to and work with students of all ages and levels is highly developed.
I have established my own method for teaching the violin, focusing on thorough technical development and the opportunity for performance and growth. Through following this method, I have helped each of my students experience outstanding results, whether through AMEB exams, obtaining scholarships or excelling at competitions both state and nation wide.
I take students of all ages and levels.
My youngest students are 3 years old and came to me with no music or violin experience. Between 3 and 6 is generally the best time to start, but everyone is different and I can advise you further when we meet for a free introductory lesson.
I also enjoy the challenge of taking on students who have learned elsewhere but not expereinced the success that they are looking for. Without a doubt, there will be reasons as to why a student is not achieving to their potential and it gives me great pleasure to find these reasons and work with the student to overcome them.
My students generally stay with me for many years and most of them continue learning the violin until they reach and pass the highest AMEB levels.
Please contact me to arrange a free introductory lesson. I have many violins, so if you are just starting, don’t buy one straight away as I may have one that you can borrow, most likely free of charge.
If you are serious about learning the violin properly, I would love to hear from you. Everyone is different and even if I feel that I am not the right teacher for you, I am happy to put you in contact with other teachers who I know to be capable.
Thank you for your interest in learning violin. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
