About me
I grew up in Greece, studying the violin, and performing as part of professional and amateurish classical orchestras, choirs, and folk ensembles. During my undergraduate studies, I completed a 3-year-long (Classroom) Music Teachers’ Training Programme (QTS). I then moved to the UK to study for a Masters degree and a Doctorate, and have permanently settled.

I have since been continuously working as (peripatetic and whole class) music teacher, lecturer, and ensemble/orchestra conductor at a number of schools, colleges and universities, and privately. I have also been managing and directing the Metapraxis Ensemble, including planning and delivering series of educational workshops (KS2) in schools and public venues. At the same time I have built a reputable profile as a performer and composer.
