Larisa has recently graduated from Avondale College (private Christian institution at Central Coast) with a Bachelor of Arts (Double Major in Music, minor in History), in violin. Throughout her studies, Larisa also had the chance to do a year of Vocal studies, focusing on Classical singing.
She has been the recipient of several performance and music excellency awards, along with a choral (?) scholarship.
Apart from studying, Larisa has had the opportunity to perform with several orchestras and instrumental ensembles on the Central Coast (Avondale Strings Orchestra, Christ Church Camerata) and in Sydney (Kozy Orchestra, NSSO) as well as being apart of an acapella vocal ensemble, The Promise and recording an album with them.
She is currently studying Music Education at Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Larisa is very passionate and enthusiastic about music and even more about sharing her learned knowledge to her students. She has been teaching for almost four years now, and is able to accommodate all ages in both violin and voice, providing a rounded approach by incorporating musicianship and music theory throughout her lessons.
Its classical roots and beautiful sound are just a couple of the reasons that so many people love the violin. However, many people may feel intimidated by the violin, especially if it’s their first time learning to read music or if they have never attempted to play a stringed instrument. Feeling a bit intimidated is perfectly valid and is one of the many reasons people don’t typically try to learn the violin on their own. However, some may also feel daunted by the prospect of taking violin lessons in Liverpool, especially if they don’t have any plans to pursue music in a professional context.
However, there are many reasons to learn the violin, even if it’s just because you appreciate music and want to learn a new skill. Perhaps one of the best reasons to learn the violin is because learning any skill, especially those as complex as reading music and playing an instrument, helps to build cognitive function, which can be incredibly important, especially in older adults. Violin lessons in Liverpool can also be a great way to relax and unwind for those who simply want something to do that lets them take a break from an otherwise busy lifestyle.
If violin lessons interest you, then we suggest coming to Anthonys Music School to see everything we offer. In addition to the violin, we offer lessons in instruments as wide-ranging as piano, ukulele, drums, guitar, and bass. Singing lessons are also available for those who would like to hone their voice.

Wanting to learn an instrument that has a classical feel and shows your true appreciation for music? Why not enrol in violin lessons? It is a great starting point for students who are also learning to read sheet music. This would create a great foundation for learning other musical instruments in the future.
