Personal Description:

Rhiannon, originally from Cumbria, studied at the Royal Northern College of Music where she completed her Bachelors and Masters degrees and also RNCM's International Artist Diploma in Chamber Music, the RNCM's highest performance award.

She is an experienced teacher and as well as teaching privately, she teaches violin, viola and music theory at Sedbergh School in Cumbria and at Stockport School.

As a chamber musician Rhiannon has played in venues such as Wigmore Hall, St John's Smith Square, St Martin in the Fields and Rachmaninov Hall in Moscow Conservatory. She has also been broadcast numerous times on BBC Radio 3 including a live broadcast and has featured on national Russian television. She also plays regularly with the Manchester Camerata orchestra and has performed at the Royal Albert Hall and at numerous music festivals including the main stage of Glastonbury Festival with Hacienda Classical.

Rhiannon now plays in and is Orchestral Manager for Kaleidoscope Orchestra, a 21st Century orchestra who’s aim is to mix up genres of music and challenge perceptions about classical music and classical musicians. She is also a member of Leos Strings who have recently completed a month long tour of Germany with Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years.

Tutoring Approach:

I love to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in lessons and will work to whatever speed and level my pupil dictates. If there is a wish to take exams then I will encourage and support that, but I also have a lot of pupils that just wish to learn for fun and i'm equally as happy working in this way.
