MEET THE TEACHERS

Julia Randallviolin, viola

Julia was born in Canada and first started playing violin at age five as part of a musical family.  Both her father and grandfather come from strong Hungarian traditions of violin-playing going back to Jenö Hubay.  At the age of sixteen, Julia was accepted into the professional performance diploma programme at the renowned Music University of Vienna, where she received training with Professor Jan Pospichal (concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra) and graduated with first class honours in 2007.
 
Extensive solo and orchestra performances throughout Germany, Austria, Italy, China, Japan, Canada and many other countries, as well as solo electric violin tours, have provided her with a wealth of experience as a versatile soloist and chamber musician. Masterclasses with György Pauk, Gyula Stuller, Gábor Takács-Nagy and Marina Sorokova have given a broad technical and musical background. In 2012, Julia completed an MA in Music Industry Management in London to complement her previous music studies, having discovered a strong interest in the managerial aspect of music.
