Sharing knowledge and expertise is a great passion of mine. I have recently completed the Postgraduate course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where I have studied with Maya Iwabuchi, leader of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. I obtained my Bachelors degree in RCS with Katie Hull, assistant concertmaster of the Scottish Opera, as my principal tutor.
I had the opportunity to receive masterclasses from teachers around the world such as Joseph Swensen(USA), Lutsia Impragimova (UK), Simon James (USA), Leland Chen(UK),Dmitri Sheinkman(Russia/Israel), Dimitris Handrakis (Greece), Simos Papanas (Greece),Mikis Michaelides(Greece) and Matheos Kariolou (Austria).
From a young age I have been a member of various orchestras in Cyprus, Scotland and France including Mediterranean youth Orchestra, RCS Symphony Orchestra, Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra, which I have played from many positions such as concertmaster, assistant concertmaster and principal second violin.
I have performed in prestigious halls including Buckingham Palace in London and Queens Hall in Edinburgh. Recent solo performances include playing with Cyprus Symphony Orchestra and Cyprus Youth Symphony Orchestra.
The discipline of the Conservatoire and the new techniques I have been taught have improved my musicianship greatly, and I am very eager to pass on this knowledge to other players.
With over five years teaching experience, one-to-one and in groups, I teach kids and adults from beginners to professional level.
Experienced in preparing students for ABRSM/Trinity Exams. However, no pressure to do so if you don't wish to.
I am enthusiastic, motivating and friendly.
My teaching focuses on the individuality of each student, therefore I am adaptable and flexible to each one's needs.
I aim to promote a high standard of music in a comfortable and engaging environment in which the student can ask questions, improve, achieve their full potential and have fun! Patience and support are essential, so I do everything in my power to provide help and guidance every step of the way.
Online lessons available via Zoom or Skype.

Konstantina has been most patient with me, and have provided help every step of the way as a teacher should, I would highly recommend to those that want to start learning the violin. The price is great for a student; affordable at any age!
Konstantina creates a friendly and encouraging atmosphere in the lesson and always keeps me challenged. I am now currently working towards taking a violin exam with ABRSM thanks to Konstantina’s guidance and support. I would definitely recommend if you are considering lessons.
