What is your role in the Bellingen Youth Orchestra Ensembles? 

I have been fortunate in teaching many of the Bellingen Youth Orchestra students on violin and viola. Sharing my skills as an orchestral violinist to help nurture and guide aspiring young musicians in their musical journeys.

 What are some of your musical achievements? 

As a proud alumna of the Bellingen Youth Orchestra, I pursued my passion for music by undertaking a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, studying under the guidance of the head of strings Michele Walsh. During my time at the Conservatorium, I achieved the first position in the University’s Ronald Clifford Davis Violin Prize. 

 My musical journey expanded as I became a dedicated member of the Australian Youth Orchestra, participating in an international tour in 2019. Professionally, I have collaborated with various ensembles and orchestras in Queensland, including Ensemble Q and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

  What do you love about playing music?  

Growing up from a young age playing the violin, music has always been a huge part of my life. Whether it be playing in a concert hall or reading through chamber music late at night with friends, the enjoyment of sharing and playing music is unmatched. 

 What inspired you to teach music in Bellingen? 

I was fortunate to learn from many talented local musicians in the Bellingen community while growing up. The students in Bellingen are provided with a wealth of experiences through the BYO and other local ensembles. I feel strongly about passing on the knowledge and experience I have attained to the next generation of musicians. Watching their development is incredibly rewarding, and being part of their education is a privilege.
