I am currently a honours violin performance student at The University of Auckland. Music has been a great passion of mine since a young age. I am friendly and patient.

I was awarded third and second prize in the instrumental class at Tauranga Performing Arts Competition Society and Te Awamutu Competitions Society of Performing Arts Inc, respectively, and awarded first prize in string class at Te Awamutu. In addition, I was one of the recipients of the APO Scholarships in 2014, and I am nominated for the 2015 National Young Performers Awards.

Teaching Info

Scales. Pieces. Artistic interpretation of the music. Playing techniques. Proper postures.
Violin: any level from beginner to grades.
Piano: beginner to Grade 5. In addition to classical piano, I can also teach you chords for pop piano.
Cello: beginner to Grade 5.
Whether you are going for grades, preparing for NCEA exams or just learning for leisure, I believe learning music is to be fun, inspiring, encouraging and confidence building. If you are looking for a change in lesson style or simply looking for a teacher who can give you both the technique and a fun lesson, I believe I would be the right person for you.
