Hello, I am a classically trained musician with over 20 years of experience. The story started with learning the violin at 4 years old and then falling in love with the cello when I was 8. Having had private lessons. played in string ensembles, participated in music competitions and having undertaken formal examinations by Vincent D’Indy Music Conservatory, I continued my studies in classical cello performance and Jazz interpretation at College Lionel-Groulx, Canada. After meeting my Kiwi partner, we have moved to this beautiful part of the planet and settled in Queenstown. Since then I have played professionally at Weddings, Functions, Concerts and Art Exhibitions.

Having pared with an exceptional musicians we offer instrumental solo, duo or trio, a diverse range of music is at our fingertips from traditional favorites such as Pachelbel Canon and Air by Bach to contemporary music such as "A thousand years" by Christina Perri & “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. We love being part of peoples special day bringing a soulful and unique atmosphere to your event.
