Information about Columba

I recently achieved BA Music with First-Class Honours at the University of Southampton, where I specialised in violin and piano performance. I plan to study violin at master’s level starting in September 2020.
My teaching style is centred around personalised and flexible teaching that is adaptable to the needs of each student, as I recognise that each student learns differently and is at a different stage of their musical journey. I also believe in building up key musicianship and theory skills alongside my teaching, so that students develop into musicians who understand music in terms of more than just their instrument. Most importantly, I believe in making learning fun and rewarding, because that’s why we do it! I am open to teaching children of beginner to intermediate standard, regularly or casually.
At the University of Southampton, I lead both the Symphony and Chamber Orchestras (‘SUSO’ and ‘SUSinfonietta’). I also managed SUSinfonietta in my final year and was the librarian of SUSO for two years. I believe myself to be a well-rounded musician, as I was also a choral scholar at the University of Southampton, and studied conducting in my final year. Before my university degree, I was fortunate to study at the Royal College of Music Junior Department every Saturday. At RCMJD, I received instrumental, orchestral and chamber music coaching, music theory coaching and choral coaching from world-class musicians. I have led prestigious orchestras, such as the National Youth Chamber Orchestra of Great Britain (2017), the Charity Symphony Orchestra (2019), and been a member of several other orchestras such as the BBC Proms Youth Ensemble (2016).
I have taught children of beginner level since 2014 and have an interest in the musical education of young people. In my first year at the University of Southampton, I lead the Social Outreach Primary School Project, which promoted orchestral playing and youth engagement with classical music. I have also had experience with Pastoral Care and was a member of the Pastoral Team on a weeklong residential music course in April 2018.

Availability: I am available during the day and evening on weekdays.
