Sophie was seen at the BBC Proms 2019 with the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra and The Julliard Symphony Orchestra. Sophie has performed in masterclasses to violin professors such as: Stephan Barrat-Due, Sigyn Fossnes, Michael Foyle, Clare Duckworth. At the Academy she performed the Sibelius Violin Concerto to renowned violinist Olivier Charlier in a public masterclass and more recently performed to violinist Josef Spacek.

Tutoring Experience:

Sophie is passionate and has been invloved with teaching and music education for years. Sophie currently works as an teacher at The Young String Experience (YSE) programme for Pro Corda in London, a mentor and performer at The Marryat Players Orchestra and a private teacher. Sophie has an LRAM teaching degree from the Royal Academy of Music and has been fully DBS checked to work with children.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe fun, positive teaching gains the best and quickest results. I am happy to take whatever path you are looking for whether that be an exam board like ABRSM or seperate music outside of the boards. Music is a great way to learn discipline and control through a exciting medium and I believe that the benefits of learning music transition into everyday life.
