About Leona G.
Born in the Czech Republic, Leona started learning to play violin at the age of 6 and is due to finish her postgraduate studies at Guildhall School of Music & Drama in June 2021, in the class of Professor Krysia Osostowicz.
Leona’s professional activities span many fields, most notably solo performance and chamber music. She participated in many competitions both in the UK and abroad, such as YCAT Young Classical Artists Trust, Cadenza Contest, Hattori Foundation - Senior award, Junior Prague and others.
Recent highlights include Leona performing a lunchtime concert in Barbican Centre in October 2020, a successful debut concert of the City of London Soloists in Conway Hall, and her continuing charitable performances in the Barnes area where Leona currently resides. Leona is scheduled to make several appearances as a solo and chamber performer in 2021, such as recitals in Velehrad - Czech charity in London, Czech Embassy or performing Mendelssohn’s concerto with The St Clement's Players in Cambridge in October 2021.
Leona is a dedicated violin teacher with considerable experience in teaching different ages and skill levels from beginners to advanced. Leona is able to teach a variety of musical styles, including classical, popular, world music genres and improvisation, whilst coaching students towards taking examinations and performing live on stage.
Leona uses an effective variety of specialist teaching techniques to make lessons fun and enjoyable. She also helps students to understand music theory and aural skills as a basis to their learning. As she has a real passion for promoting the violin, her goal is to instil a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time teaching students about the technical and theoretical aspects of music. Furthermore, Leona strives to expand children’s interests in music by organising live performances and inviting them to attend her own concerts. By utilising these effective methods, she is able to reach out to each student individually, introduce new repertoire, foster a fun learning environment and help students blossom into well-rounded individuals.
