Fully Accredited (2015/2016) through teacher-training in Books I,II,III,IV (Beginner-advanced) and teaching The O'Connor Method-A New American School of String Teaching ( by virtuoso violinist Mark O'Connor) and AMEB grades.
I also take orchestra with the O'Connor Method Books at The McDonald College studio.
Teaching classical and different genres to enable students to develop to choose whichever style of music they wish to pursue. The O'Connor Method was introduced in America in 2005 by Mark O'Connor and I intend to promote it in Australia as I believe it is the best way to learn string instruments yet. The O'Connor Method uses a wholistic approach to music learning with a "...gradual deveopment of technique including left hand, bow skills and ear training as revealed through the study of beautiful music that encourages a love of music making in a slow,steady and natural way..."
