I have performed on viola with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria. While living in The Netherlands I performed with a variety of Baroque ensembles. Currently I am teaching at two of Melbourne’s leading independent schools. I studied Violin pedagogy at the Koninklijk Conservatorium in The Netherlands with Qui van Woerdekom and his approach has informed my teaching for more than 25 years. A few former students are now string teachers and I have prepared viola students for successful university entrance auditions.
