Natasha Ivanovic is a professional violinist and teacher with 23 years of playing experience, the past 10+ of which have been spent actively teaching violin, viola and (formerly) piano. She received First Class Honours in her Bachelor of Music at the Melbourne Conservatorium, under the tutelage of renowned teachers Wilma Smith and Rachael Beesley. During this degree she was fortunate enough to not only study classical performance with Wilma at a postgraduate level, but also specialise in early music and historical performance with Rachael, in addition to performing in various chamber music and orchestral ensembles. Having previously completed her Associate of Music Australia (A.MusA) Diploma on Violin in 2007, and a Bachelor of Popular Music Degree in 2013, Natasha has gained experience and expertise in a multitude of areas of violin playing and music more broadly, making her a very versatile performer and teacher.
She has full registration as a member of the VMTA (Victorian Music Teachers Association), is on the committee at AUSTA NSW and holds a current Working With Children Check. While she now focuses on her successful private studio, specialising in individual tuition on violin for students of all ages (four to adult) and levels (beginners to advanced), Natasha previously taught violin, viola and piano at several Melbourne schools. She has extensive experience teaching the AMEB and VCE syllabus, with students consistently achieving great results in exams (an average grade of Honours), and continuing to meet and exceed their own personal goals. Natasha regularly performs professionally as a classical and contemporary violinist/violist, as well as working in recording studios as a session musician. She is trained in audio engineering and production, and is a proficient songwriter, composer and arranger of music.
Having recently moved to Port Macquarie, Natasha now services the NSW Mid-North Coast, as well as providing high quality Zoom lessons to students nationwide.
