ABOUT

I'm a classically trained violinist from southern France, interested in many genres as long as the music speaks to my soul.

I've been playing violin since I was 8, and can comfortably play viola.
I have extensive experience in chamber music but zero experience as a band musician. I'm a fast learner and a true team player. I'm a friendly listener, I love to feel the energy I'm receiving from other musicians, give it back and enrich it.
Can be quite creative and love to explore sounds and craft melodies, or improvise.

My violin technique is fairly solid, I have very good relative pitch and basic improvisation skills, always looking to play and learn. I care about intonation, dynamics and ensemble.

Interested in many genres, try me. This site only let me pick 4 genres :) I'd love to play live or in a studio. Looking forward to hearing from you!
