Violin and Viola
“As a violin tutor, I approach each student as an individual, with different needs, wishes, and goals. While I enjoy teaching all students of all ages and levels, I do have a passion for teaching beginners.“
Natalie has been teaching the violin for over 15 years and has taught people of all ages, from primary school to adults. Her students have ranged from beginners to tertiary level violinists.
Natalie began her violin studies at the age of 7. In 2003, she completed her Bachelor of Music (Performance) degree from the Queensland Conservatorium studying under the esteemed violinist and pedagogue, Carmel Kaine. She has since completed a Masters Degree in Music (2006) and a Doctor of Musical Arts (2010) from Michigan State University under tutelage of Walter Verdehr.
Natalie has played numerous recitals both within Australia and the United States. In addition to this, she is also an avid chamber musician. As part of the string quartet “Fyra” she was a finalist in the Australian Chamber Music Competition. In 2004-2006 she toured to remote parts of North Queensland with her quartet and didgeridoo player, William Barton as part of the Australian Festival of Chamber Music.
