- What kind of experience do you have?

Many years of experience performing and recording with ensembles from the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland to the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Academy of Ancient Music, the English Baroque Soloists and the English Concert as well as performing chamber music concerts on a regular basis. I am a regular soloist with the Feinstein Ensemble at the church of St. Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square.
I have taught privately for many years, also as a deputy at Hill House International School in Chelsea, at projects at the Royal Irish Academy of Music for both conservatoire and school students, and at chamber music courses for Dublin Youth Orchestras.
I have led the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in concerts for under 5's given by the in the South Bank Centre in London.
I have a particular interest in chamber music, and introducing children early to musical communication by performing with others. If you have a chamber ensemble who would like some tutoring then I would be delighted to help.

Most of the lessons I give are on Mondays or Tuesday afternoons/evenings, but I have a varied schedule and will try to accommodate your lesson at a time that is convenient for us both. I am happy to give lessons during school holidays if wished.
As I am a performer as well as a teacher I may have to rearrange lesson days from time to time to fit in concerts/recordings, but I do try to keep rearrangements to the minimum.

I teach all ages and levels, from age 6 through to conservatoire level and including adult beginners, or people who haven't played the violin for a while and would like to refresh their skills.
