Christianne began learning the violin aged nine, playing in many orchestras throughout the Midlands before studying for a music degree at City University, London. She studied further with a pre professional course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, which was followed by a music PGCE at Birmingham University.  She continues to fulfil her passion by playing chamber and orchestral music whilst teaching music across all age ranges.

Catherine (Cello)

Born in London, Catherine moved to Cirencester where she started playing the cello at the age of 7, receiving free lessons thanks to government policy; something that she remains passionate about today.  During her time at the now Royal Birmingham Conservatoire of Music she took lessons with Mikhail Kaznowski (Maggini Quartet) played in the CBSO and performed in Sweden and France.  Having obtained graduate and post-graduate qualifications she has since enjoyed a busy career juggling motherhood, performing, recording and teaching.
