I use a wide range of techniques and resources along with the use of Fiddle Time Joggers book and The Suzuki method.
I gained a distinction in my Associated Boards Grade 8 violin when I was 16. Music was a big thing in my secondary school and I was very lucky to have amazing teachers. I naturally gravitated towards GCSE and A level music, gaining top grades in both.
After completing my Bachelor of Music degree (BMus Hons) at The University of Ulster I went on to complete a PGCE at Liverpool Hope University in England.
After leaving classroom music teaching I became a peripatetic violin teacher in primary and secondary schools for Wigan & Warrington Borough Council, and also taught pupils privately.
During my time in England I played in many duos and bands. This lead on to me performing in top Irish theatre shows which toured the UK extensively. In the widely acclaimed show, ’The Essence of Ireland’, I was the lead violinist and backing singer within the showband. I also toured Holland in a show called ‘Celtic Rhythms’ in which I was the lead violinist (I was also a solo singer in the show and backing vocalist).
My violin playing can be heard on the Bob the Builder track ‘Big Fish Little Fish!’
One of the highlights of my music career so far was playing violin in a scene in a Demi Moore movie called ‘Half Light’. It was a great opportunity and cool to meet Demi Moore herself!
I am a professional electric violinist at weddings and corporate events in Ireland, north and south.
I have been so lucky to have been invited to perform on these special occasions by events organisers and wonderful couples!️ To see people enjoying the violin music as much as I love playing is just amazing.
I absolutely love my job and in these current times I miss playing, performing and entertaining immensely. I know though that 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘂𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗹. I cannot wait to share my passion for violin playing with everyone who books lessons with me!
