I teach engaging and tailored violin lessons (AMEB syllabus), ranging from total beginners to intermediate students. I am patient, supportive and encouraging, with my lessons driven by fostering love and growth of music in students wanting to discover meaningful and fulfilling repertoire. I always strive to lead students to fulfill their potential. I can adapt to the student's preferences of lesson styles, whether that be a fun & dynamic approach, or a more serious and disciplined focus.
I have played the violin for 11 years, generally following the traditional AMEB syllabus to AMUS & LMUS level in weekly private lessons. I have been taught by reputable Brisbane teachers including Stephen Chin, Kyla Matsuura-Miller and Michele Walsh. From these highly qualified, passionate and inspiring teachers, I learnt a variety of fundamental and advanced skills in instrumental technique, expression and musicianship.
I graduated from Somerville House in 2018, where I received the highest level of musical education. Here, I participated in weekly rehearsals for the top chamber string group, consort & quartet for my two years of attendance there. The Australian Combined Schools Music Festival in Canberra was also a large highlight of my musical involvement at Somerville.
I have previously been a member of the Queensland Youth Orchestras and the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra.
Through consistent participation of these orchestral and chamber groups, I learnt the natural skills and processes required for such programs.
I highly value healthy teacher-student relationships where the student feels valued, understood and fostered in a highly supportive and non-judgemental environment, conducive to the growth of musical excellence.
