I began learning the Violin at the age of 6 studying under the first International Suzuki Violin teacher Ms Hirrokio Primrose. At age 8 I was part of a group of students who travelled to Japan to perform at the International Suzuki Violin School, at concerts throughout Japan and have private lessons from Dr Sinichi Suzuki. I completed my study of the Suzuki Method then furthered my qualifications by studying A.Mus.A in Violin & Cello at the Conservatorium under the direction of Wollongong Symphony Orchestra 1st Violinist Alice Fitsummons. Over the years I have performed at the Wollongong & Sydney Conservatorium & the Sydney Opera House. I have had positions in the Central Coast Orchestra, Central Coast chamber group, Launceston Philharmonic and the Launceston City Orchestra, In 1987 I moved to Tasmania where I was introduced to the vibrant and exciting energy of Celtic Music, which has become a dominant part of my teaching style. Having experience playing with Celtic groups such as the "Tasmanian Celtic Fiddle Club", "Liffey Folk Club", "De-ja-vu", Strings & Things Roscoes, over a 12-year period with Performances all over Tasmania. Melinda attends a regular yearly pilgrimage with advanced students to Celtic Music camps & schools in Tasmania & Victoria and the National folk festival Canberra. For 22 years I have taught the Suzuki method for strings in Catholic & State education in Tasmania & Qld as well as privately. In 2007 I founded the MCFC (Moreton Celtic Fiddle Club), which has grown from 12 – 61 members. Through MCFC I continue to share my passion for Celtic Music with my students and members of the public. I am a strong believer in encouraging ALL of my students to be involved in performances for their school ensemble/orchestras. Also extending that further by becoming involved in the many community music groups available. I currently teach Violin cello Viola Harp Contact details - melinda.gilkes@gmail.com 0402266480
