Personal Description:

Portuguese violinist Joana started playing violin aged 4 and soon joined the Aveiro Conservatoire of Music where she studied with Ana Sofia Mota until she finished school. During the final 2 years, she also studied the viola with Hugo Diogo.

In 2007 she went to the ANSO in Lisbon, where she continued her violin studies with Anibal Lima and chamber music with Alexei Eremine and Paul Wakabayashi.
She continued her studies at the Royal College of Music, London, with Radu Blidar for her Masters Degree, which she completed in 2013.
As chamber music is one of her main passions, Joana is a member of the Agalia Trio and was a member of Sattler Quartet for 2 years. She attended many festivals such as Harmus Festival, Stift International Festival, Aurora Chamber Music and Lake District Chamber Music.
She also participated in Masterclasses for solo and chamber music, given by distinguished Professors including Gordan Nikolic, Daniel Rowland, Leonid Kerbel, Zoltan Santa and the Chilingirian Quartet.
Joana plays regularly with a variety of orchestras including Garsington Opera, Britten Sinfonia, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, Orpheus Sinfonia, Chipping Campden Festival Academy Orchestra, which enables her to work with great conductors, including Bernard Haitink, Edward Gardner, Martin André, Herbert Bloomsted, Roger Norrington, Antonio Pappano and Michael Zilm.
During 2014, Joana spent a fantastic year as a member of Southbank Sinfonia - personal highlights include projects with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the Royal Opera House, concerts with the La Maîtrise Notre-Dame de Paris and chamber and orchestral concerts in the Anghiari Festival.
Whilst studying in London, Joana was a recipient of the Gulbenkian Scholarship. Now she is grateful to have the support of the Harrison Frank Foundation, for the loan of a Maurizi violin, as well as a career development bursary from Help Musicians UK, which enables her to work with Peter Manning.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching since 2009 both privately and in schools.
I have a wide range of students, from beginners to advanced and a variety of ages too.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe each student is different so I aim to find a way to work with each individual in a particular way that better suits their needs.
I'm a very dedicated teacher and expect the same dedication from my students.
