Postgraduate Dimploma
from the Royal Northern College of Music
I have recently completed a course in Violin Teaching in the Colourstrings method and I have just started a Masters in Koldaly.
Instruments: Violin
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Traditional Scottish Fiddle
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I have recently moved to Milngavie and I am keen to expand my database of private pupils. I teach the violin and the viola from the music room in my home. I recently had the privilege of learning the 'Colourstrings' method of violin teaching (see link below) and I am keen to put into practice what I have learned into my lessons. Alongside violin or viola, I incorporate 'solfa' (see link below) musicianship and games into my lessons, ensuring a well-rounded musical education.

In 2007 I graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, with a Bachelor of Music with Honours. I also completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Performance from the RNCM in June 2008. During my studies I was generously supported by a number of Scholarships.

As a performer I work a lot in and around the UK with many of the top orchestras, including the Royal National Scottish Orchestra, with whom I am regularly employed on a freelance basis. I am fortunate enough to be a member of the Korda String Quartet, with whom I perform on a regular basis at weddings and functions. My experience as a performer really enhances my ability to bring the passion found in live concerts to my lessons, ensuring all of my students get the very most out of each and every lesson.

I have been teaching the violin and viola for a number of years now. I teach privately from my home, and I have also taught for a number of music services including Ealing Music Service, London, and East Renfrewshire Council, Glasgow, among others. When I was living in Chile, South America, I taught at a private all-girls school in Santiago called Villa Maria Academy. I have experience of teaching a wide range of different ages and abilities, from children to adults.
