I studied both Violin & Piano from the age of 4 and joined the Philharmonic Orchestra of Sri Lanka at the age of 13. I obtained my Diploma in Violin performance (LRSM) and Advanced certificate in Piano Performance form The Royal Schools of Music, UK & Diploma in violin performance (LGSM) from The Guild Hall School of Music, UK. I won the “String category”British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance, and Speech; I was awarded a scholarship to attend orchestral training program directed by Andrew Sherwood in Hertfordshire, UK. I also Won orchestral training string quartet composition competition. I was the Gold and silver medalist in string, piano, and woodwind category for Descant Recorder, Violin & Piano in Sri Lanka's Ministry of Education's All Island Music competition. I have performed with many orchestras in Sri Lanka, Singapore and Canada for the past 30 years. My experience in the past 23 years of teaching, I have developed a passion and personal commitment to three things: Fostering a positive learning environment for students with various backgrounds, developing students performing level and conducting a creative lesson while focusing on correct technique. I believe that the best way to enrich ones life is through music. I am very fortunate that I grew up with music surrounding me, and one of my main goals within my career is to introduce the magic of music to others. No matter your age, music will be able to teach something about yourself that you never new, and I love being apart of the process! I am very excited about teaching multiple genres of music with the violin & Piano, and hopes to educate the masses regarding the importance of music in ones life.
