- Do you have a personal message for students?
Music is the part of life and nature that everyone should experience. It goes beyond words; therefore it is the best way to express yourself. The more you invest in it the more it gives you back. With a positive attitude and an efficient method, practice becomes more enjoyable day by day and you can be surprised how much it helps in other aspects of your life. It has a positive influence on your schoolwork or job. It is never too late to learn to play a musical instrument. All you need is motivation and curiosity!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have two years experience of teaching children aged between 3 and 7 at a private nursery. I acquired coaching experience in London Symphony Orchestra's Educational project 'Take a bow!'. I have been teaching students of different levels privately. Moreover, I have experience in teaching groups, chamber music or orchestra sections.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I do not have one but I intend to have it carried out.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I studied for 3 years with Rivka Golani at Trinity Laban. She teaches both viola and violin and she is considered one of the greatest violists in the world. I also had several master classes with Peter Barsony, Roger Chase, Carducci Quartet, Wihan Quartet, Smith Quartet at Trinity Laban; with Yuval Gotlibovich in Sweden, Israel and Finland; with Rafaelle Mallozzi and Piero Massa in Italy; with Voces Quartet and Wolfgang Klos in Romania.

My most recent teaching/ coaching project has been with the Neue Philharmonie Munich where I prepared the viola section for the four concerts of their autumn project. There I taught and supervised students of intermediate and advanced level aged between16-70.
