Irish born, Annemarie began studying violin at the age of 4 and viola at the age of 17 with Elizabeth Csibi at the Royal Irish Academy of Music Junior School. Awarded an Irish Permanent High Achievers Award and numerous Feiseanna prizes, Annemarie continued her studies at the RSAMD in Glasgow receiving both a degree and then Post Graduate Diploma in Music Performance under the tutalage of Lev Atlas, principal viola Scottish Opera, and Andrew Berridge, co-principal of BBCSSO. Annemarie has performed in many masterclasses, including Robin Ireland, Gareth Knox and Barbara Westphal. Annemarie is a keen chamber musician, involved with various ensembles, and performed regularly RSAMD's Symphony, Chamber and Opera Orchestras. She recently performed with Scottish Opera and their Apprenticeship Scheme. Annemarie enjoys teaching violin and viola, and was awarded a distinction in the Techniques of Teaching on her degree endorsement. She is regularly involved in education workshops for many Scottish Councils and holds a current full disclosure from Disclosure Scotland.

When not teaching, Annemarie enjoys performing throughout the country with her quartet Cairn String Quartet. Her passion lies in composing string arrangements, particularly for bands and solo artists for recording and performing which she does regularly on both violin and viola. Her string arrangements can be heard on albums by Muhsinah (the noisettes), Ian McCulloch's live solo album, Will Hanson, Celtic's Johnny Mac and the Faithful and X factors Danyl Johnson and Gamu. Recently, Annemarie arranged many string orchestra arrangements for the Echo & the Bunnymen Ocean Rain tour.
Annemarie is also highly skilled in improvisation.

Tutoring Experience: I teach regularly for Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Musicworks and workshops for West Lothian, Dumfries and Galloway and North Lanrkshire councils. I have also taught at the High School of Dundee.

Tutoring Approach: I am happy teaching for SQA or Assosiated Board exams, or just for pleasure. From child to adult, I encourage a relaxed and friendly environment in which a student feels confident in reaching their full potential. I also encourage the parents of younger children to sit in on lessons to help practice at home.
