About my teaching


Welcome to my Violin/Viola Studio based in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a passion for teaching and have extensive experience teaching violin from beginner to advanced levels throughout New Zealand. 

 As your teacher I will treat you as an individual.  I will nurture your musical talents and help you to set and realise your musical goals.  I will tailor my teaching skills to suit your age, ability and learning style to best develop your potential.  I will impart to you a sound technique and a love of music! 

 Performance is an essential part of learning a musical instrument and I provide opportunities in the form of concerts, competitions and examinations. 

I also help students develop their ensemble skills, from duets to orchestras. Chamber music is a valuable and enjoyable experience for violinists of all ages and levels.



 “Charlotte is a caring, respectful, intelligent teacher with an eye for detail.  I am particularly impressed by her ability to thoughtfully choose music to match William's growing abilities, supported by carefully chosen scales, studies and bow techniques, ensuring a holistic approach to learning and teaching.
She has high expectations and work ethics.  I would love to thank
Charlotte for encouraging, supporting and inspiring William into a successful, confident violinist.  William has completed NCEA music in levels 1, 2 and 3 with excellence. He has completed his ATCL and won numerous performance competitions over the years, under Charlotte's teaching.”
