I am Vincent, a conductor and viola player trained in Europe. Former Auckland Philharmonia Resident Conductor, and professional violist. My mission is to guide and inspire dedicated individuals who are truly committed to advancing their musical abilities and knowledge.

Only for the Dedicated

I’m here for those who seek substantial progress, not just musical dabbling. If you’re genuinely dedicated to honing your craft, I’m excited to work with you.

A particular passion of mine is conductor training for high school music educators.

  • Conductor Training: Unravel the secrets of conducting, musical leadership and enhancing your interpretive conviction.
  • Viola & Violin Performance: Dive deep into the world of stringed artistry, refining technique and expression.
  • Audition & Exam Preparation: Looking to prepare for an audition? My insights from working with New Zealand professional orchestras can help.
  • Ensemble and Chamber Groups: Elevate your ensemble’s performances with meticulous coaching that hones both musicality and unity.
  • Academic Music: Explore your music subjects more deeply, as I unravel music’s history and language.

Join me on this exclusive journey towards musical excellence.

Transformative conducting lessons. Vincent helped me understand the symphony. His patient guidance turned me into a confident conductor, to work more efficiently with the school ensembles I work with.

Vincent has a gift for teaching and breaking down topics big and small. His guidance on my music subjects at school, and especially music theory, was crucial to my success.
