Studied music at University of Cape Town, College of Music.
Studied Suzuki Teacher Training , Piano & Violin, through Suzuki Association of America www.suzukiassociation.org
Board member of The Heart Of Texas Suzuki Organization: www.heartoftexassuzuki.org.
Studied Irish Fiddling with several master teachers at the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat.
Since 2002, I’ve worked as a musician (Piano & Fiddle,) for the Austin Waldorf School.
Worked as a piano accompanist for Violin teachers, high schools and churches.
Private teaching studio since 1998, (piano) and 2009, (violin.)
In 2014, I started “The Dripping Strings Fiddle Club,” a children’s group who enjoy playing Irish & American Fiddle music.
I’ve performed Texas Dance music, Old Time American, contra dance and Irish Fiddle music locally.
I am currently doing some in person lessons, (with masks) and online teaching. If you are a beginner , I prefer to use the Suzuki method as I feel this provides a strong foundation in both ear training & technique. Playing by ear is SO important when learning traditional music!
Beginner lessons are best done in person. If you already play and would like to learn Irish fiddling, I’m happy to work with you online . Please contact me to discuss your musical situation, needs etc.
