Emilie is an enthusiastic young violin teacher who herself studied under the Suzuki Method, graduating level 12 in 2014. She studied Graphic Design at University, graduating in 2018 with Honours. She has since undertaken study in violin teaching, and will be gaining her Certificate III in Suzuki Talent Education (Violin) at the 2019 Suzuki Graduation Concert.
Emilie began learning the violin under the Suzuki Method at the age of 4 with Louise Keller. She then learnt from Katie Betts for several years, before moving to Haruo Goto, who she has studied with since 2005. Music has always been a big part of her life, and throughout school and university she was involved in several music ensembles including the Schools Spectacular Orchestra, Sydney Eisteddfod Celebration Orchestra, and the Northern Sydney Youth Orchestra. She is currently a member of the Kuringai Youth Orchestra, and has performed several solo recitals for the Granny Smith Club in Epping and for North Ryde Community Aid. Over the past year, Emilie has been studying to gain her Certificate III in Suzuki Talent Education (Violin), which she will receive at the 2019 Suzuki Graduation Concert. She hopes to further her studies in Suzuki Education and complete the Certificate IV and Diploma courses over the coming years.
Outside of music, Emilie has pursued her passion for art and design at University, completing a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication (Honours) from which she graduated in 2018. She currently works as a freelance designer, and enjoys incorporating her design skills with music. Several of her clients are music-related, and in 2016 she undertook an internship as a graphic designer with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Emilie is a firm believer in the Suzuki Philosophy, and hopes that she can inspire a love of music in her students alongside fostering each individual child’s growth and development.
