As a violin teacher my aim is to support my students in cultivating a love of music, self-discipline, and their own unique creative expression. I place importance on making sure my students feel comfortable enough to take risks in learning while also becoming more and more self-directing; that they become confident in practicing efficiently and effectively. I structure my classes on the RCM curriculum; focusing on music theory, technique, ear training, sight reading, and performance. Above all I hope to make my classes a place of exploration and fun! Each student should leave my class excited by their creative journey as well as proud of what they have accomplished thus far.
I trained privately at Amati String Studio for 15 years with Amy Levinson; finishing my RCM examinations.
I currently perform and study Persian violin. My current teacher is Sina Ettehad.
Former member and first violinist of the Waseda Symphony Orchestra.
I am currently a working musician. I do everything from session work (recording and arranging), performing my own music, as well as teaching violin. I have recorded with Grammy award winning producer Carmen Rizzo (co-founder of Niyaz) as well as other fusion artists such as Kaya Project and Karavan Sarai.
I write and perform my own music in a fusion band alongside my partner. Our music is a combination of world instrumentation and electronic bass and rhythm. I produce, record, and mix all my own tracks and from this have become well versed in music arrangement. What I think my experience as a musician has gifted me with is the ability to improvise and express what is beyond sheet music. I also sang with the Children's Bach Choir for 11yrs and completed the RCM voice exam up to gr. 8. I spent a few years learning Hindustani singing which I incorporate into my own music along with the traditional Persian violin I still study to this day. I spent a 1.5yrs living in Tokyo and performed with the Waseda Symphony Orchestra where I played first violin. Though I teach classical violin my students know of the other styles of music I write and perform. I hope that as a working musician I can demonstrate to my students that creativity and music is theirs to discover; let classical music be the foundation in which you establish work ethic, technique, and theory but let yourself express beyond what I teach you; play for yourself and take risks.
