Hi, I teach Violin and Piano.

My Story

I am an Irish/Iranian Violinist just recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, who grew up in Northern Ireland and began taking lessons at the age of seven. By the age of eleven, I won the Northern Ireland’s Primary School Musician of the Year and was invited to perform at the House of Commons in London as a result.


My Concerto debut was at the age of sixteen, playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor with  my local community orchestra. While studying for A-Levels, I have achieved both ATCL and LTCL diplomas in Piano Performance and both DipABRSM and LRSM diplomas in Violin Performance.


In Glasgow, I had the opportunity to play alongside the RSNO and was involved with performances in venues such as The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and City Halls.

As a teacher, I strive to develop young people's motivation for learning and use music as a channel for self-expression and creativity development. I consider each of my students a unique individual, and I use a student-centered approach.
