Risa Sekine is currently in her third year at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, studying on a full scholarship. She studies violin with Nathaniel Vallois and Oliver Wille.

She has been a part of various chamber ensembles and orchestras in both Tokyo and Birmingham, which has shaped her love of ensemble playing.

She has also played in masterclasses with Professor Richard Deakin, Bin Huang, Professor John Gilbert, and Linus Roth. Risa has been accepted onto the CBSO Training Scheme this academic year and has also taken part in various side-by-side schemes with the Welsh National Opera and Orchestra of the Swan.
