Information About Emily - Knightsbridge teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Emily:
Twenty-year-old violinist Emily was raised in the Austrian Alps, surrounded by music. Born in Cambridge, Emily took up the violin when she moved to Austria at the age of five. Her Polish roots have provided her with numerous opportunities to perform in Poland alongside some outstanding musicians and ensembles, including Maestro Blaszczyk, the principal conductor of the Silesian Philharmonic.
At the age of fourteen Emily was accepted into the prestigious preparatory program at the University Mozarteum in Salzburg; after 4 years under the tutelage of Wonji Kim, she went on to study with Professor Igor Ozim for a year. Being part of the legendary Maestro’s last class before he retired shaped her greatly and encouraged her to seek new challenges.
After the Maestro's retirement Emily felt compelled to come study at the Royal College of Music. She was taught by Prof. Maciej Rakowski and is now studying with Prof. Leonid Kerbel and Prof. Daniel Rowland. She is an RCM Foundation Scholar supported by the Musicians‘ Company Lambert Mentorship as well as the Henry Wood Trust Award.
Further important achievements include leading the MusGym Orchestra as concert master in Salzburg’s Großer Saal, where many renowned artists have performed. She has traveled to India, Italy and Germany with the same orchestra, playing at festivals such as the Passauer Festspiele. Emily has also performed solo with orchestras in Austria and Poland, in addition to solo performances in Germany, the UK and the USA. She is passionate and vocal about her love for music, which is why Emily likes to organise concerts wherever she sees an opportunity. This is her way of bringing people together, exploring how multifaceted classical music is and how it plays an essential role in our lives.
Emily has taken various teaching modules at the Royal College of Music as part of her Bachelor of Music course. She has taken the ABRSM Teaching Dipolma Exam and would love to teach Beginners as well as Intermediate violin students.
She has played in schools, doing Outreach work and workshops with children.
Having the opportunity to learn in a one-to-one tutoring session is an extremely valuable experience. I warmly recommend taking up or pursuing progress on a musical instrument to anyone, wether they want to do it professionally or not. Music teaches you a such a wide range of skills that are relevant for everyday life. I would love to be part of the journey and help learn essentials of violin playing as well as exploring music repertoire and the joy of performing!
