Originally from Nelson and an active musical family, Fleur has been playing and performing from an early age. At 10 she began lessons with Nelson’s own Margarita Jackson and in 2010 she completed a BA/MUSB under the tutorage of Jan Tawroszewicz and has been teaching ever since. In Nelson she has been part of an eclectic mix of ensembles, ranging from an American folk duo to a Klezmer band and a classical string quartet. In 2016 she completed her BMUS (First Class Hons) at Te Koki New Zealand School of Music and has just finished working towards her MMUS in classical performance under Helene Pohl from the New Zealand String Quartet. She is currently a member of the Goya Ensemble and the NCMA Chamber Orchestra.
Skills and expertise
With over 8 years teaching experience, Fleur loves teaching all ages and abilities, and helping people on their musical pathways wherever they may lead. She has experience with both children and adults and firmly believes in making learning the violin a fun and positive experience. She does not adhere to a particular teaching method, but rather tries to cater each lesson to the individual needs of the student. She is happy to take students though their exams up to ABRSM Grade 8.
