About Me

Angela discovered the joy of teaching while mentoring younger students in her roles as Music Vice-Captain and Captain at Mueller College Secondary School. She now shares her passion, as an orchestral strings and musicianship teacher, with the students at her growing private studio in North Lakes, where she especially enjoys teaching adult beginners. She also offers her teaching abilities to programs such as the Gladstone Youth Music Council on a regular basis.
Angela enjoyed developing her orchestral and chamber music performance skills as part of her Bachelor of Music at the prestigious Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, from which she recently graduated. Her principal teacher there was Queensland Symphony Orchestra violinist, Dr Nicole Hammill. One of Angela’s achievements during her time there was being named Principal Second Violinist of the Queensland Philharmonia Orchestra, which was, at the time, based at the Conservatorium. Angela continues to develop her skills with regular attendance at specialist workshops, such as the Melbourne Youth Music Summer School and Cairns Winter Music School.
As an orchestral performer, Angela has developed her orchestral skills under the guidance of celebrated conductors such as John Curro (Queensland Youth Symphony), Warwick Potter (University of Queensland Symphony Orchestra) and Johannes Fritzsch (Queensland Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra). Through these and various community orchestras, Angela has participated in numerous concerts, music camps, and tours over the past ten years. This has included performances in the world-renowned Sydney Opera House and Brisbane’s foremost classical music venue, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.
In the future Angela aims to develop performance opportunities for adult beginner music students, travel overseas in orchestral contexts and explore contemporary music genres in a chamber ensemble setting.

Subject

Angela has developed a program for teaching music in a thorough but creative way, so that students learn not just the specifics of playing the violin but also gain a deep knowledge of music and acquire many skills that are vital to a musician. But most importantly of all, they have fun along the way! As part of their violin lessons, Angela also gives her students a truly comprehensive music education, including effective practice skills, performance skills, aural skills, composition and improvisation skills, self-evaluation skills, music history and general knowledge, how to care for their instrument, how to read, sight-read and memorize music and finally to play their violin with an acute musical sensitivity. Angela prepares students for exams by integrating their exam work into their program of lessons, rather than creating an atmosphere of pressure by focusing purely on exam material. Angela's aim in teaching this way is to foster and develop her students' love for music throughout every music lesson.
