As a violinist who started playing the violin at the age of two and a half I have life long experience in violin performance and teaching. I have degrees in violin performance from the Guildhall school of Music and Drama in London and from the University in Vienna. I enjoy mixing styles, from classical to film music to hiphop and pop. I believe improvising is important to be a flexible musician and have fun techniques to learn a proper bow hold and posture right from the start, rather than letting the student learn bad habits. I concentrate on letting the personality of the student guide the student through exploration of the music using story lines. All ages and levels welcome, it is never too late to learn, I have taught many students who started after the age of 20. Also I can prepare students looking to enter music universities and pass performance auditions. I have studied under some of the best and most famous professors in the world.
