I am a professional violinist with many years experience in a wide variety of groups including Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, Auckland Philharmonia (NZ) and Royal Covent Garden Orchestra ( London,UK).
My expectations of a student are that they display a genuine interest in the instrument and. willingness to practise regularly with the aim of setting up a daily practice routine. This approach with its focus on discipline and habit achieves results quickly so the student makes good progress and maintains interest. Currently lessons are online and I find for beginners 2 thirty minute lessons per week helps to establish a practice routine. I encourage students to play in ensembles and offer shared lessons with one other student of a similar level.
