Ensemble

I offer weekly chamber music coachings throughout the year. Individual or pre-formed groups are welcome.

Chamber music is one of the most beneficial, supportive and fun ways to improve your playing. Not only will students refine fundamental skills such as rhythm, pitch, timing and dynamics, chamber music also develops creative thinking, co-ordination, memorisation, social and emotional skills.

Performances

Students have the opportunity to perform throughout the year as a chance to share your hard work with family and friends, as well as to hear your studio mates play.

As performing is a vital part of a violinists/violists education, recital/rehearsal attendance & involvement is required for studio recitals.

Scale classes

Playing Scales together will promote greater technical facility, better pitch, and a greater architectural understanding of the fingerboard.

 

These classes will provide the essential foundation for playing the violin enabling the violinist to creatively express their repertoire.

Three times weekly are held on zoom.
