I am a dynamic and passionate violin teacher with over 10 years’ experience working with students of all ages and levels, teaching in English and French. Originally from Sydney, Australia, I pursued my musical studies in Europe and hold Masters degrees in both violin performance and violin teaching from the Haute École de Musique in Geneva, Switzerland.

My approach to teaching is student-centric tackling technical or postural challenges in a logical and efficient manner ultimately allowing the student to explore, discover and express their own creative ideas. With younger students I introduce the wonders of music and the violin using a variety of fun and stimulating methods to suit the child whilst with more advanced pupils I tailor repertoire choices to suit the needs and preferences of the student. My teaching also incorporates general music theory and addresses psychological aspects of learning a performance instrument including exam and concert preparation as well as issues relating to performance anxiety if they arise.

I am currently accepting students of all ages and levels and I hold strongly to the attitude that anyone can learn the violin. Based in Fulham/Chelsea/Kensington I am willing to travel within these areas.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or to organise a consultation meeting/lesson.
