Music has led me on many exciting journeys throughout my life and nothing brings me more joy than sharing my passion for the violin with others. I have travelled to and performed in many different countries around the world for festivals, theatre concerts and TV shows; I have also performed on recordings of many different styles of music from classical to rock to world music. This diversity of styles has always been an asset in both my performing and teaching.

My first violin teacher was a great inspiration to me. He was undoubtedly responsible for my love of the instrument. I later changed schools where I found myself learning from a really dull and overly strict teacher! As a result, my interest faded and I begged my parents to let me stop the lessons. They didn't give in and, luckily, I eventually found a new teacher that made learning fun and inspiring again. This difference in teachers made me realise the importance of their role and that if they are having fun and are passionate about what they do, then the student will follow. This is my motivation when I teach and I find that my students want to learn and put in the practice. I started teaching at age 15 and have continued to do so since. I have entered many into ABRSM exams with spectacular results which excites me just as much as it excites the students. I believe in building up their confidence through consistent encouragement and by enabling them to perform for an audience whenever possible.
