I have played viola for the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra for many years. I’m also the founder and manager of the Garden City Quartet, a string quartet which plays for weddings and other functions. See

I studied viola from distinguished teachers including Prof. Donald Maurice, and CSO principal violist Serenity Thurlow. I am also a fully registered Secondary School teacher, and have taught several years of itinerant and private tuition in both violin and viola (also beginner cello, trumpet, guitar, piano).

My hobbies and interests are numerous, including soil science study, organic gardening, tramping, social justice work, and diy :)

Location: to be confirmed, trying to find a room to hire in a more central location. I am happy to discuss preferences of length and frequency of lessons to suit. Any ages welcome, I have mostly taught Secondary School age and adults in the past. Violin/viola lessons can be taught in either Traditional or Suzuki methods, to suit the learning styles, aims and interests of individual students. Classical/Folk/Pop/Irish.

Classes follow school terms usually, and I take on new students any time.
