Personal Description:

Music has been a big part of my life from an early age. After graduating my music education in Romania with maximum grade, I started my career as a professional violinist, having the opportunity to play with the Bucharest Philharmonic Orchestra and the National Radio Orchestra, and also around this time I found my passion for teaching violin and piano.
Soon after, I won an audition for the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra in Denmark, where I learnt a lot about orchestra playing, getting the chance to play with world famous conductors and soloists. I was also happy to be able to work with children as a part of a music education project, led by members of the orchestra. That's also where I picked up my passion for baroque music and period instruments, by becoming a member of one of the leading professional baroque ensembles in Denmark, BaroqueAros. After my contract ended, I moved to the UK, where I got to be a part of an amazing and diverse music scene, which inspired me to stay and continue teaching and playing.
Nowadays, I'm dedicating most of my time to teaching, either as a visiting tutor at different schools in Berkshire, or privately at the student's place or mine.
I can travel further distances for an additional cost, and depending on the train connection from Reading. Please ask me about the travel distance, and I'll be happy to reply.

Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching since I was a student, more than 8 years ago, and since then I taught violin and piano in 3 different countries, allowing me to have a unique perspective over teaching techniques and styles. For the last few years I worked as a teacher for the New Musicians Institute, a private music school providing home tutoring as well as in schools around North Surrey and Berkshire.

Tutoring Approach:

Growing up in a family of musicians, I learnt that playing an instrument isn't only about the individual practice and personal gain, but also it's about communicating feelings in a non-verbal language. That is why, during my lessons, I like to play alongside the student, showing that you can have lots of fun while playing, but at the same time learn some very important skills, that will help them become confident.
I consider that in order to feel confidence and enjoyment while playing an instrument, there needs to be a good balance between the practice of note reading and having fun with music.
My students describe me as being very calm and never out of patience, which helps them to build confidence and enjoy the lesson.
I work really well with all age groups, my youngest student is 6, while my oldest is 81. I encouarge any adult or student who feel a connection to music but think it's too late to pick up an instrument, to give it a go and try it. You'll be surprised how rewarding it is.
