My Suzuki education began at the age of 3 when I was involved in the first ever Suzuki group led by Brigid Walton.
After reading music at the University of Ulster, I was fortunate to be accepted into the violin teacher training programme at the British Suzuki Institute in London where, over the next five years I would complete my Suzuki violin training (Level 5). I am delighted to have reintroduced the Suzuki Method to Northern Ireland after a twenty years absence.
In August 2012, I started my Suzuki ECE training with Dorothy Jones in Switzerland. This was the first time that Suzuki ECE training was available in Europe. I am delighted to be introducing Suzuki ECE classes to Northern Ireland. There is only one other qualified Suzuki ECE teacher in the whole of the United Kingdom! I will return to Switzerland to complete my training.
The Suzuki Method has been a part of me for most of my life. I know that every day is better when Suzuki philosophy is at the root of not just music, but life also.
