I am currently in my second year of study at Auckland University completing a Bachelor of Music. A large part of my current study focusses on musical education and the most effective ways of teaching the violin. Along with teaching violin privately I also work with Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra’s Aotearoa Sistema programme and Lewis Eady Music School, where I teach a variety of musical programmes and the violin.
I enjoy woking with children and adults. I teach beginner and intermediate level violin. I am also experienced in teaching music theory and piano.
I love playing the violin and have been involved with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra, the Waitakere Orchestra and the Philharmonic Society Orchestra based in Auckland and am currently a member of The Auckland University Orchestra and String Orchestra.
A usual lesson plan might include a variety of pieces that will best match the students abilities. Technique exercises are utilised, such as studies and scales. I also like incorporating other styles of violin that suite the student’s interests.
I encourage my students to go through music exams to ensure their growth and development with the instrument and I also teach my students musical theory and general understanding of piano if desired.
