After completing a M. Mus (Dist) in Auckland, I freelanced with the APO and played a season playing with ‘Phantom of the Opera’. I then completed a Post Graduate Diploma from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, U.K. in 1999.

I have many years of experience as a freelance performer with various orchestras, touring shows, musicals and chamber ensembles and continue to play with local professional and touring ensembles / orchestras such as APO and Bach Musica.

Apart from performing, I also teach violin privately and at various schools (both public and private) in Auckland.
My students follow either Trinity or ABRSM syllabuses and range from age 5 – adult.

Exams aren’t for everyone and lessons are tailored to the individual.

Many students have continued onto Performance degrees and now play with me in professional orchestras.

I now only travel to my students’ homes, in various suburbs including: St Heliers, Mission Bay, Orakei, St John’s, Glendowie, Glen Innes, Meadowbank, Ellerslie, Stonefields, Remuera, Epsom, Newmarket and nearby suburbs.

Teaching Info

As well as working towards practical violin exams and helping my students with their school orchestra/ chamber music, I ensure that all students have a solid theoretical grounding.
