- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Violin Studying with me will be a fun and inspiring experience for the both of us! I am very committed to my teaching work and make sure that I always get the best out of my students and encourage them to reach their full potential. Some of my students have been accepted to the prestigious Purcell School of Music.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I was born in Latvia and started to play the violin at the age of 7. Since the age of 12 I have been a laureate of numerous international violin competitions in Europe. In 2007 I was invited by Professor György Pauk to study on a full scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music in London from where I recently graduated with First Class Honours. As well as my degree I received Her Royal Highness Princess Alice the Duchess of Gloucester’s Prize of 2012 for Exemplary Studentship.

Recently I have been awarded a further full scholarship to continue my studies on the Academy’s Master of Arts postgraduate course. Other awards at the Academy include the John Waterhouse Prize 2009, Mica Comberti Prize 2010, Wolfe Wolfinsohn Prize for string quartet 2010. I have won prizes in many international competitions.1st prize as well as the ‘Virtuoso Prize’ in 12th International Violin competition in Kloster Schontal and first prize in the National Competition for Violinists, Latvia, in 2004 and 2008. Other prizes include the J & A Beare International Solo Bach Competition in 2010 and at the 30th International Violin Competition Rodolfo Lipizer in 2011 alongside a special prize for the best interpretation of a 20th century violin concerto.

Also I have participated in master classes with some of the world’s most respected musicians including Vadim Gluzman, Viktor Pykaizen, Petru Munteanu, Thomas Brandis, Koichiro Harada, Pamela Frank, Krzysztof Wegrzyn, Gyorgy Pauk, and most recently with Leonidas Kavakos and Maxim Vengerov.
