I teach students from 5 years old to an advanced level. I have a Bachelor of Music from the Canberra School of Music, I have been leader of the ABC's recording orchestra for 10 years, and have worked internationally for many years, including leading the Gabrieli Consort for many performances throughout Europe and the USA and for Deutsche Grammophon recordings. I can cater to all needs; I have enjoyed teaching very young children (and older children) for a number of years, including preparation for AMEB exams. I have also taught at Masters level for the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, specialising in baroque violin. Bringing out the joy in musicmaking, and giving very sound technical advice which make playing easier, are my priorities. My lessons have a sense of fun, encouragement, practicality, and sympathy for the individual child's needs.
