I currently have 16+ music performance experience involving classical violin, Irish fiddle playing, tin whistle, singing (solo/choir) and calling ceilidh dances. As of 2020, I have currently graduated from Victoria University with a degree that included papers in Music Composition, Theory and Studies.

I have experience in teaching solo lessons as well as group classes as a president and teacher of a university music club Vicfolk for the last 3 years. I wish to encourage people of all ages to learn a new skill in music and to introduce to stylings of Irish folk to many new, interesting people.
