Verified profile

I’m a violin performing artist, now based in West Midlands, UK. Trained in Trinity college of music (Laban), mentored by the reknown Hungarian master Eszter Katona. Active in Classical playing In Orchestra, string quartet and solo recital. As I was surrounded by musicians network in London, I studied Jazz and improvisation skills. My passion in Jazz, rock and modern music has led me to jazz projects. I became the lead violin in the group called The Vultures, our album Three Mothers are available for streaming on Spotify. My style is unique, striking a balance between the classical and modern. I favour the tone, a sound that can move a person, my technique hence is built upon it. My lifelong interest in meditation and neuroscience also helped me understand intuition in a deeper sense, which allows me to tap into the music I’m playing. Oftentimes violin playing is based on someone else’s written work, but I tend to think no two people can play the same piece in identical expression.

Andy did the music for our wedding ceremony, and was brilliant to work with from start to finish. He was open to any suggestions we had, made the whole process very easy, and is such a talented musician who was great on the day. We would 100% recommend him, and to top it off he's such a nice guy too. Thanks Andy!

We were over the moon with Andy's fantastic performance at our garden dinner part. What a seasoned professional. He played everything we asked him to and more. He helped to provide a truly magnificent evening. We would book Andy again in a heartbeat. Our guests were so impressed. Thank you for such high calibre of musicians Encore. Sharon and Kevin
