I am very flexible in my teaching methods and can teach any student of any age or range of skill. I can teach from ABRSM and Trinity Exam Syllabuses and can focus on individual student needs. I run to schedules of 30, or 60 minute lessons, with fun activities and collaborative exercises included to make the learning experience enjoyable and enriching.
I have been privately teaching students since 2014, and have adapted my teaching to both Australian and UK syllabuses. I have achieved all the grades in performance in Australia in Viola and have professional positions in the Melbourne and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras. I have taught over 40 students and have earned over 25 A/Distinctions in performance exams. I am currently completing my Masters degree at the Royal College of Music under the tutelage of Jonathan Barritt.
