|I've played and studied the violin all my adult life, and I also run music workshops for preschoolers and adults. . Currently I'm creating some DVD material for Gloucestershire Council, with the aim of sharing good music practice for under-5s; the DVD will be accompanied by a resource book and will be distributing them free. When we are able, Mark and I play as a performing duo as well as taking part in festivals, live music sessions and recordings. In the picture you see me putting a fiddle through its paces in our dedicated stock building.
I spend some of my time repairing violins and setting them up ready for sale - and it's great to see an instrument come back to life, giving someone the possibility of making music on it again! We use Warchal strings for many of our new instrument set-ups.
