I started playing classical Suzuki violin at 4 years of age and progressed through various AMEB pieces throughout my school age years in performance and musicianship. I was also in orchestra in Canberra and the Sunshine Coast. I was later involved in two Irish bands and various gospel music bands. I have been teaching violin for sixteen years in public and private schools, in music schools and now at my home studio. I love teaching children and adults alike and now primarily teach Suzuki in which I am an accredited teacher. I follow the Suzuki method which believes all children have talent and it is just a matter of providing the right environment for this to come out in. That is why a certain amount of committment is required from the parent including attending lessons if possible. I really enjoy teaching violin and discovering the best way to make the instrument come alive for each person.
