I am a graduate of The University of Queensland, and have studied the violin for 22 years. I participated in the Queensland Youth Orchestras for six years, and in the Young Conservatorium Ensembles, Orchestras, and Choirs for five years during my late primary and high school years.
Along with the violin, I have also studied voice for 4 years, and piano for 9 years. Apart from private violin tuition, I have also taught instrumental lessons at a number of schools from Cleveland, Victoria Point, Rochedale, Yatala, Coomera, and Inala.
I believe that an interest in music and music making should be encouraged from the earliest age, and can also give great joy to those wishing to learn as a hobby later in life. There is never a bad time to start learning something to enrich life.
I firmly believe that playing music should be fun, and can still be fun even if pursued with an aim to compete and/or complete exams. I'm more than happy to prepare students for eisteddfod's and AMEB exams, for both practical and theory.
I have also taken it upon myself to further my own knowledge and education in playing with a view to have zero injury and to minimise the risk of pain as a result of poor technique. I will always seek to achieve the most comfortable way of playing for each individual student, and to ensure each student understands the basis for certain technique requirements.
