Virginia Weekes

I worked as a professional violinist for decades, and taught both privately and in schools throughout that time. For nine years I was a full-time teacher of violin, viola, and chamber music at the Methodist Ladies College in Melbourne, and more recently, alongside private students, taught violin to classes of refugee students in Mt Gambier.

I am extremely passionate about music, and think it is one of the most beautiful things to be involved in; whether you are a listener or performer. I am very enthusiastic about spreading this love of creating music to everyone I teach, and have had much experience teaching both in schools and privately, as well as performing in large orchestras, smaller chamber groups, string quartets, musicals and solo performances. In 2018, I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Violin Performance from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, and am currently studying for my Honours degree.
