I am a 21 year old studying my Bachelors of Music Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium under Alice Waten.

I have previously tutored students through examinations up to Diploma level, and have taught at a wide range of ages and skill levels. In turn, I have been taught by several notable violinists of our time such as Mark Mogilevski (First Violinist of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra), Alice Waten (Sydney Conservatorium), and Lewis Kaplan (Juilliard School of Music)

I also offer specific 'tutoring' type lessons and essentially help students with their practice.

After participating in almost 10 years of chamber ensembles and orchestras in performances around the world (China, Europe, America), I am also able to provide insight into the technicalities of group performance, and how to judge one's own playing in the context of others.

Recent repertoire includes a performance of the whole Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with OSSO, the entire Sibelius Violin Concerto, the whole Ravel Second Sonata and other various pieces by Wieniawski, Bach, and Paganini.

As I am originally Melbourne based, I will only be able to provide lessons during the 8 months that Uni is on (March-June and (August to November). Class times will be flexible and based on my own class schedules.
