A violinist with more than 15 years of experience. Violin and Music reading lessons. Beginner to advanced. (Sheffield based)

Methodology

My methods are planed individually, according to each student-abilities and availability. Mostly is guided by the Suzuki method. I am very approachable. I have a few rules such as to stop playing once you get tired (physically or mentally) and try to make the experience of playing the violin a very enjoyable one, with goals according to each student. For instance, preparation for the ABRSM exams :)

Experience

Hi! I am a very experienced solo and Orchestral violinist. Currently, I am part of the Sheffield University Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, and also the Sheffield Philharmonic and Chamber Orchestras. I have an MSc in Molecular Medicine, and currently, I am doing a PhD in Biomedical Science / Neuroscience.
