Award winning fiddler and classical violinist offering violin/fiddle and music theory lessons

Methodology

I believe that each student has a different learning style, and it is my job as a teacher to help them achieve all that they can by tailoring my approach to how they learn. I balance my lessons by focusing on individual interests and technical work so that my students are getting better overall through what they love doing. I've designed an online curriculum that combines video call lessons and additional recordings that you will have access to as you learn. Whether it's playing a Mozart Sonata or improvising to Billy's Bounce, I would love to help you get your violin playing to where you want it to be!

Experience

I am a violinist, vocalist and producer based in London. My performances are influenced by blues, classical, folk and jazz styles, in which I combine live looping with electronic violin and voice. Some of my performance credits include headlining the PHILLTER Festival and opening for Crystal Palace feat. Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band.

Born in Florence, Massachusetts (USA), I began playing violin at the age of four, immersing myself in classical and folk music. I was a member of New England Conservatory Prep. School, playing in their orchestras and chamber ensembles. I was also a member of the Boston Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (BPYO), performing in their New York Times critically acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut, conducted by Benjamin Zander. I was a member of the Springfield Youth Orchestra (SYO) as well, serving as concert mistress for two seasons. During this time, I was the winner of both the Rodes Concerto Competition and the SYO Concerto Competition, as well as winning awards in fiddle competitions around the New England area.

As a student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, I began exploring different genres such as jazz and hip-hop. Aside from my own performances and compositions, I was a regular session musician, playing, recording and working with bands such as Ben Folds, Antwon Stanley, Buffalo Rose, and Nevada Color.

Upon receiving my undergraduate degree in Classical Violin Performance, I moved to London to pursue a degree in Jazz Violin from Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Here I have played with Horton Chamber Orchestra, as well as receiving an artist visa from the Arts Council to continue my performance work within the UK.
