About Juliet

I am a violinist and violin teacher. I have performed for many years as part of a duo, in ensembles and orchestras in the UK and abroad
Violinist
Redruth
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I am a violinist and violin teacher based in Redruth, Cornwall. I have considerable experience of quartet, chamber and orchestral playing. I have taken part in concerts from a young age (eight) and continued to perform. Currently, I perform as a string duet, with a cellist or harpist. Also, I am part of the Bowie Lounge - a collective including classical and pop musicians, ballet dancer, artist and photographer. I moved from London to Cornwall in 2011. I have taught violin to private students in Cornwall for the past five years ranging from beginners, aged seven, to adults. My violin teacher, Caroline Lamont, who passed away in 2015, taught me from eight to sixteen. She remains my inspiration. I come from a musical family who are also a major influence. My mother is a flautist and flute teacher and my father is a composer and clarinettist.

Kirsty L, 4 years ago

Juliet’s beautiful violin playing was a really wonderful addition to our wedding ceremony and reception. She was so generous and thoughtful in making sure the choice of music complemented the atmosphere we were looking for and the sound of strings resonating through the venues brought a very special feel to the day.

Lisa J, 4 years ago

Juliet played at my wedding for a song I rewrote for my husband along with my band. Having her play with us made the song perfect and exactly as I wanted it. She learned very quickly what I had asked of her and with one short rehearsal with an emotional bride, made it a moment to remember. Absolute professional."
