Being a highly qualified and enthusiastic violinist with 10+ years of teaching experience, I bring a great depth of technique to my lessons. My focus lies on making our lessons fun and enjoyable. I help with a correct technique and perfectly matched repertoire for any student's level of playing. Where possible, I organise informal concerts for my students if they feel comfortable performing, to recreate a wide variety of scenarios. Behind each of my students is my encouragement for them to become their own musician and artist.
I teach efficient practice technique and how to play the violin in an easy, comfortable and consistent way. At the core of my teaching is the correct set up and posture, breathing, natural technique and focus on non-pressured positive achievements to guide the player through their learning and discovery of the instrument.
For the last 10 years, my approach has helped students with their concentration in schools and their ability to focus longer. We learn about music theory and aural musicianship in an interactive way on the instrument. The methods that I teach have originated throughout my studies in London, Berlin, Edinburgh, Germany and New York City.
As I am currently an active violin performer in Australia, my students can see me play in classical and other concerts settings. I've been playing the violin since I was 5 years old, touring the world performing and teaching violin and piano.
Violin is my passion and to inspire others and help them improve on the violin adds purpose to my musical career. I am a warm and positive person and have coached on summer music camps, adjudicated music competitions and taught group and individual lessons at schools and universities. I look forward to hearing from you!
