I am a Russian trained professional violinist and have lived in NZ for 15 years. I have played professionally with many orchestras in NZ including APO and NZSO. I also run a very successful private teaching studio with students excelling in all grade examinations including Diploma level and regularly winning competitions. I offer first trial lesson for free, where you can ask me any questions about my teaching, and I can assess how I think we should work to improve your playing.

Teaching Info

My teaching method combines Russian traditional school of violin playing with a blend of my own international experiences. I believe in a balance of technical work with enjoyable music making. Students have many opportunities for performance and ensemble playing when they study with me. I like to work towards goals which the students are encouraged to set themselves, such as examinations; competitions; public performances or joining an orchestra.
