Originally from Greece Anastasia has graduated from the State Conservatory of Music with the National Violin Diploma, distinction and 1st prize. Being a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra for 4 years gave her the opportunity to meet musicians from all over the world, work with the most established conductors and perform in the most prestige venues of Europe.
Having moved to London she continued her studies at the Royal Academy of Music receiving a scholarship for young Greek musicians. “During my studies I discovered that music has not only changed my life but changes the life of everyone around me, everyone who allows music fill their soul. This was the moment when I discovered that teaching music satisfied me equally with performing in public. Having several students of all levels and ages I realised that music captivates you as well as sets one free. It is a reciprocal relationship that I am bound for life.''
''Violin performance engages the physical, the psychological, and the musical abilities of the player. My fundamental principle of violin teaching, based on natural physical motions nurtured in a non-judgmental environment, embodies all three of these elements of performance. The development of a facile and secure technique begins with physical freedom. This then gives the performer the freedom to play with musical sensitivity and confidence. My best teaching moment is when I see my student progressing, play a piece desirably and achieve a great standard of playing, but above all enjoy music!''
