Hi there, I am a professional violinist and experienced violin teacher based in Central Auckland. I am currently teaching violin at the Pettman Junior Academy. I also play regularly with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra among other orchestras in New Zealand.
I can travel to your house anywhere around Central Auckland for private lessons (lesson fee includes travel) and I can help with preparation for ABRSM and Trinity exams. Recently a student of mine passed Grade 8 Trinity with Distinction!
I hold a Master of Music degree from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) from the New Zealand School of Music. I also played regularly as a casual player with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra when I was based in Melbourne. In 2016 I worked as a Contract Tutti First Violinist with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
All ages and levels are welcome, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I would love to hear from you :)
I like to start each lesson with scales and technical work after which we will work on repertoire. I use the Suzuki books and/or Grade books or whatever pieces the student may be working on, and at the end if there’s time I like to play duets with my students for sight reading practice.
