Personal Description:

I am a UK based Violinist, Pianist and teacher of basic music theory, currently living in the student halls of residence at the University of Surrey. I am studying a 4-year degree in Music Performance (BMus) aiming to become an in-demand professional performer and well-known teacher of music. I have been playing piano since I was 5, and violin since I was 7, and have been an avid performer ever since.

I am currently working towards performance diplomas and love to share the benefits of playing music psychologically and physically with the music community.

Past experiences:
2021: 3 GYSO Summer courses, Amadeus Academy and String Academy (cut short due to Covid).
In the summer of 2019, I took part in a String Academy summer school at Yehudi Menhuin School. At the end of the first week I performed Haydn's 'Lark' and Beethoven's 'Spring Sonata'. This gave me the skills to work in a group and collaborate ideas into a stellar performance. That summer at Trinity Laban I took a masterclass with the inspirational Nick Pendlebury, where I played Kabalevsky's 'Violin Sonata in C major'. In the second week, we partnered with the Devon & JUTP South West Camerata and travelled to Edinburgh, twice playing to capacity audiences in St Giles' Cathedral. It was an incredible life-changing opportunity, and it has increased my confidence and helped me grow as a person and a musician.

2018 - toured Rome with my school's Chapel Choir and also played violin as the only soloist in some stunning venues, such as St Peter's Basilica, the Duomo and Chiesa de Santa Maria. This broadened my horizons and heightened my love of travel and sharing music with audiences around the world.

2016 - attended a masterclass at the Yehudi Menuhin School of Music with Ruth Nye, where I played Beethoven's 'Piano Sonata No.1 in F minor'.
2016 - took my first European tour to Venice with my school's Chapel Choir where I sang and played violin in St Mark's Basilica.

Tutoring Experience:

I have helped my peers in GCSE Music and theory when I was being taught the A level and looked at their compositions with them.
I am now currently teaching two pupils violin to grade 5 standard and have taught adult beginners.
I have been playing piano for 13 years, and violin for 11 years. From age 9, I helped friends learn the violin, teaching them how I hold my bow and the violin.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is make myself accessible to all levels, and to help you as much as possible in advancing your musical skills.
Instrumental lessons are to be enjoyed and should be a fun learning experience for all ages. I am open to many styles of music, but am most knowledgeable in the classical style.
