My name is Ayla and I am a violinist currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music. I sarted playing the violin and piano at the age of 6. At the age of 12 I had passed both my Grade 8 on the violin and piano with distinction and completed my DipABRSM at the age of 15 on the violin, also with distinction. From the age of 14-18 I was a student at the Junior Department of the Royal Academy of Music where I held a full scholarship and lead the orchestras, as well as winning the Concerto Competition in my final year. I have a lot of orchestral experience having also been leader of the Brighton Youth Orchestra and a member of the National Youth Orchestra. This has lead me to perform in venues such as the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, The Barbican, Cadogan Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall.
I spend a lot of my time playing chamber music and have performed at many festivals abroad and in the UK. My quartet is scheduled to play at Wigmore Hall and King’s Place in the coming seasons which I’m really looking forward to!
I also love performing solo and frequently give recitals and have performed concertos with orchestra such as Mendelssohn, Barber and Mozart.
I have been teaching the violin and the piano for 5 years and have enjoyed teaching students of different ages and abilities, ranging from child beginners to amateur adults players. I believe there is no right or wrong age to start enjoying music. I am happy to methodically work through the grade book system but would be equally happy to support someone on their musical journey through another method as exams are not for everyone!
I am an energetic, passionate and patient teacher. I have experienced a broad range of teaching myself (some good, some not so good!) and I have realised that having a methodical structured approach to teaching is very important. With younger students I tend to use the Grade Book System as I find that is provides clear and attainable goals for both the student and teacher. It also gives the student a sense that they are progressing which I believe is extremely important in inspiring and motivating a pupil to work hard. While the grades provide good structure, I never only rely on exams as they won't provide a consistent source of musical inspiration. I encourage my pupils to join orchestras and play chamber music with friends as at the end of the day, the real joy in music comes from creating it with other people and sharing it with audiences!
