Verity Van Rooyen was born into a musical household and has passionately been devoted to music since beginning piano lessons at the early age of 2. She was offered a flute scholarship at Heritage College and later a violin scholarship. This musical calling enabled her to be nominated as leader of the Heritage College Senior Orchestra and second violinist in State Music Camp Bishop Orchestra before graduation from Heritage at Year 11. Subsequently Verity graduated from The Elder Conservatorium with a Diploma of Music and is currently majoring in Classical Violin in her final year of a Bachelor of Music Performance and Pedagogy at the Queensland Conservatorium studying under Graeme Jennings, Markus Stocker and Michelle Walsh, holding a deep appreciation for orchestral and chamber music.

Her orchestral and chamber performance highlights include collaboration with Burnside, Queensland, and Elder Conservatorium Symphonies, Elder Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra (including paid touring), Queensland Conservatorium Symphony, Opera, Concertos, Divertimenti String and Chamber Orchestras, Queensland and Elder Conservatorium Chamber ensembles including string quartets, quintet, violin/harp/flute trio (honoured with Winner of Balaklava Eisteddfod in 2010) and Baroque ensemble. Verity manages The Bonito String Quartet and Ensembles and has been touring Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane since 2009 with performances involving combinations of strings, wind, brass, keyboard and voice.

Branching off from her active role as chamber musician, Verity’s commitment to her Christadelphian Church including Sunday School teaching and mission-work in India has provided opening for her musical development in The South Australian Christadelphian Orchestra and Youth Group Music involving composing, arranging, conducting, recording, solo performances for large-scale praise nights/preaching campaigns/social events/formal services, jamming, and coordinating and leading rehearsals and tutorials.

Verity’s lifetime love of children and interest in psychology initiated her pursuit of String Pedagogy and as a private tutor to over 70 beginner – grade 6 violin and viola students from age 2 including special needs. She is known as a highly motivated musician and string teacher with a patient, genuine care for each student. Familiarity with Suzuki, AMEB, Muller Rusch, Kodaly, Dalcrose, Orff and Colourstrings programs has led to Verity’s passion for developing full potential in her students and provided her the ability to tailor teaching to the needs of the individual.

Verity looks forward to heightening her performance career through her business The Bonito String Quartet & Ensembles while investing in her students at Starshine Music Studio, Southern Cross Catholic College (4 campuses) and home studio.
