“The child’s brain responds powerfully to music… enhancing all other learning”

Richard Gill (1941 – 2018) , MD Victoria Opera, SSO, Musica Viva. June, 2016.


“My two daughters have collectively enjoyed over 15 years of musical learning with Antonia. As they progressed through the Suzuki levels, their individual love of different musical composers, styles and genres started to emerge. Antonia always acknowledged and encouraged their individual interests and allowed them to explore repertoire.
Her attention to detail, yet careful observation skills have allowed my children to genuinely enjoy and develop through their music journey.” T. Terrey

“My daughter, Hannah, started learning violin with Antonia in primary school. Hannah is now in Year 10 and we value the mature, respectful and fun pupil/tutor relationship that they have developed. Hannah has recently completed Level 5 Suzuki, commenced her AMEB exam journey and has joined a senior orchestra – none of which would have been possible without Antonia’s encouragement and guidance.
Antonia has been a truly wonderful role model and teacher. We are grateful that she has been a part of Hannah’s life.” R. Appleton

“Antonia has been teaching my 10-year-old daughter violin for the past 6 years. During this time I have seen my daughter continually progress in skill and proficiency, successfully achieving three Suzuki Graduation levels and participating in the Suzuki Annual Graduation concert held at the Sydney Opera House.
Antonia’s attention to detail, ensuring correct posture and technique are achieved in the early stages, have provided a wonderful foundation for my daughter’s violin playing.” Natasha, mother of Meja

“Antonia has been teaching me for 6 years and I have really enjoyed it. It’s been loads of fun. I think Antonia has been a great violin teacher.” Meja, aged 10.

“Antonia has taught my daughter, Michaela, violin for over 3 years. Antonia has developed and taken a sincere interest in Michaela’s appreciation for music in general. As a violin instructor Antonia is dedicated and encouraging to her pupils.
Michaela’s progress has been a delight to watch, not just violin technique but her ability to read and understand music theory.” Adriaan, father of Michaela
