Notes:

Together, we discover the infinite possibilities of producing nice sound and musical creativity, as well as different methods for efficient practising. I am looking forward to sharing my inspiration and passion with you!

I have gained experience in teaching for more than 10 years. This does not only include private students of all levels and ages, I was also invited to teach at the Verbier Festival Amateur Chamber Music Week (adults/individual lessons/chamber music), coaching the viola section of the Zurich Youth Symphony Orchestra and teaching in chamber music camps for children and adolescents at the Foundation Villa Jolimont (individual lessons/chamber music). Furthermore, I was a jury member of the Swiss Youth Symphony Orchestra auditions.

Besides ABRSM exams of different levels, my students have also passed auditions for the London Schools Symphony Orchestra (LSSO).

No matter whether you just decided to learn violin or viola, you are already a passionate player, or you are an entire chamber music group, I am looking forward listening to you and work with you to improve your sound, musicality and technique. I am happy to prepare you for all grades of ABRSM, Trinity Music Board, GCSE & A level performances and orchestral auditions. However, as music theory is part of some of these exams, I will also be happy to prepare you in that regard.

My approach towards teaching and playing has been greatly influenced by my former professor Wilfried Strehle,1st solo violist of the Berlin Philharmonic since the era of Herbert von Karajan. Furthermore, I highly admire Aida Stucki's school of sound production which has its origin in the school of Carl Flesch. Aida Stucki was Anne-Sophie Mutter's most influential teacher and I was very lucky to study with two other former students of hers.

However, this is only a basic approach since firstly, I shape my style of teaching to suit each student's needs individually, and secondly, the most important thing while playing is that you enjoy the way you learn in a positive atmosphere to achieve your personal goals whilst obtaining a solid technical foundation.
