GRACE STAINTHORPE - VIOLIN WELLINGTON MUSIC TEACHER
Grace is a violin tutor, and is currently completing her Bachelor’s degree in classical violin performance at New Zealand School of Music. Soon after the instigation of her studies at age 4, she saw her first orchestral concert and her passion for music was ignited! She was fully involved in music all throughout her secondary school years: taking part in the NZSO National Youth Orchestra, and the National Chamber Music Competition-including competing in the national semi-finals.
She followed her love of music into University, and she now studies under the tutelage of Martin Riseley. She received the award for the best audition to the Classical Performance programme of 2015, and holds her DipABRSM in violin performance.
Grace tutored students with a range of learning disabilities in Secondary School, and has always enjoyed helping others achieve their potential. She loves all aspects of music, from solo performing to chamber music, orchestra, and just being around others that adore music as much as she does!
