I have been learning the violin since I was 9 years old. I’ve learnt from the very best including Isabel Mandache, Iselta Allosin, John Seager, William Hanfling, Elizabeth Hollowell. I am currently in my second year of studying a BMus majoring in Classical Performance (Violin), where I am being taught by APO member, Mark Bennett. Growing up I have dedicated my life to music. As well as being a violinist and having my fair share of orchestral and chamber music competition experiences, I also play the Tenor Horn where I sit Principal Solo Horn for one of Auckland’s top brass bands, The Waitakere Auckland Brass Band.
