General Details

LmusA, Music theory grade 6, Concertmaster of ANGO (past), Concertmaster of AAO (present), Teacher at USM (past), 2nds Principal of MUSO

I am a 21 year old currently studying BmusA at The University of Melbourne Conservatorium, going into a performance major.

Having been thrust through the cogs of classical music for 15 years now, my love for it only deepens with the years, and I’d thoroughly enjoy sharing my experience amongst students! My style is mostly pertaining to the russian violin school- which has produced masters such as Oistrakh and Vengerov.

My current teacher is Mark Mogilevski but I’ve also had the pleasure of being in masterclasses with the Takàsc Quartet, Noah Bendix Balgley (Berlin Phil Concertmaster), Oleh Krysa, and members of the Chicago/Nashville/Houston and Cleveland Symphonies.

Previous teaching experiences involves coaching Amusa and Lmusa students as well as beginners at the Universal School of Music http://universalschoolofmusic.com.au/
and at Boxhill music, generally teaching the suzuki method.

Recent personal highlights include traveling to America to participate in the Mimir Festival, and traveling to South Korea with the MUSO as well as China with the Melbourne Opera Orchestra.

Repertoire played recently:
Sibelius Violin Concert, Chausson’s Poème, Ravel Sonata No. 2, Franck Sonata, Ysaye Violin Sonata No. 3 Ballade.
