Having begun his musical journey on the violin at age 6, Harry is a classically trained violinist with more than 15 years of experience. He completed his musical education at the Melbourne University Conservatory of Music, specializing in performance under the tutelage of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra violinist Oksana Thompson and professional solo violist, Wenhong Luo.


In 2018 as concertmaster of the String Ensemble and Orchestra, Harry graduated St Michael’s Grammar School with the Anne Jones Memorial Prize for Instrumental Music and is currently the recipient of multiple Corinna D’Hage String Scholarships at the University of Melbourne while being a member of the University Symphony Orchestra and multiple Chamber Quartets, playing both Violin and Viola.

Teaching Approach

The end goal for every student is not only the development of technical ability and expression but also to encourage a warm learning environment that fosters a greater love for music and being able to express it through each student’s performance. Whether it be for leisure, or for AMEB exams, each student will reach their desired level of proficiency at their own pace and understand and, most importantly, enjoy what they play.

Professional Musician

Harry has performed orchestral, chamber, and solo work at major concert venues, including Hamer Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre, the NGV, Deakin Edge and Iwaki Auditorium. Experienced in a wide range of repertoire, from 18th-century baroque music, to the romance of Tchaikovsky in the 19th, and through to musical theatre of the present, Harry’s experience in a vast range of musical styles in both solo and collaborative manners has cultivated his love and passion for music as a whole.

Funnelling that passion for music, Harry’s teaching aims to provide an outlet for musical expression supported by a stable technical foundation, facilitated by learning that is informative as it is engaging, making sure each and every student knows what they’re practising and what goals they attain, whether it be technical dexterity, quality of sound, or musical expression.

Although mostly servicing school-age music students, Alla's Music Studio caters for all ages and is a really well-operated music school.Jack McNamara has been giving me trumpet lessons there since mid December 2022 and I could not expect to have a better teacher.Jack is incredibly passionate not just about playing trumpet, but in imparting his knowledge and experience to others.Jack is beyond his years in maturity and ability to connect with his students.For over four months so far, he has kept me engaged and excited in learning this most difficult of instruments.The more I improve, the more he feeds my hunger for greater challenges with clever tips, tricks and things to practice between lessons.

Alla and her team are amazing. My little one and myself have both enjoyed the piano lessons with the teacher, Agnes, not only because she focuses on the accuracy of the notes, but the theories by showing and asking my little one to write the notes. This is something, I know, my little girl will benefit forever. Agnes is a super star, with clear instructions and encouraging tones. Thank you. Also thank you to Rita - the best assistant you can ever find in Australia!

Alla’s music team is very welcoming & professional. This music studio has a very friendly atmosphere & Liam is very patient with my son. He is very skilled and focused on my son’s learning. I see my son growing in confidence in his guitar skills. Liam understands my child’s interests & not only teaches him how to play guitar with good technique, but he also encourages my child to enjoy it! Liam also emails recordings for practice. Highly recommend Liam for guitar learning.

Alla and staff are incredibly nice to deal with and very prompt when I have to reschedule or cancel my daughter’s piano lesson, which has happened a few times during 2022. Another good thing about the studio is that lessons continue throughout the school term breaks, unlike most other extracurricular activities. My daughter has progressed so much in the short time she’s been learning piano at the studio. It’s a testament to the expertise and professionalism of Alla and staff members. Highly recommend sending your kids to this studio!

One of the parents asked me to wright a review about Alla’s Music Sudio, so here it is. I have 3 kids who are all into music. My daughter, the oldest, plays violin both the traditional and Suzuki method. My oldest son plays acoustic piano, keyboard and every other musical instrument which has keys on it, and my little son plays drums. Many years ago when my kids were just starting to take music lessons, finding a good music teacher for each instrument was not easy, and then driving the kids to different places for their music lessons was like having a full-time job. Fortunately, this has changed after we found Alla’s Music Studio. The studio provides musical education for all ages, all instruments and all methods. The teachers are all experienced musicians. I was able to book music lessons for my kids so that they all have it on the same day at the similar time. I leave my kids at the music school and then pick them up after the lesson; I have more free time now to do whatever I need. The school is in the short driving distance from Ormond, where we currently live. I’ve met some parents who are based in Balaclava, Malvern and Caulfield, and a happy to drive the kids which is still only 15 mins drive from where they are. If you are living in one of the below suburbs and looking for a music teacher for private or group lessons, I think that Alla’s music school would be one stop for all your child’s music education. Brighton, Highett, Murrumbeena, Clayton, Cheltenham, Hughesdale and Oakleigh. They also have a website with the pricing info, holiday program, etc..

Alla’s Music Studio was recommended to me by a friend. I was looking for a good and affordable piano teacher in Bentleigh, and when I met Alla I felt confident that my son will receive the music education on the professional level. We have been attending Alla’s Music Studio for about 4 months now and my son’s piano skills have certainly improved. I would recommend this service to any parent who is currently looking for a professional music school around Bentleigh area in Melbourne

Violin Lessons FAQ

Can I teach myself violin?

You may learn the violin like any other instrument. A method book, YouTube lessons, WikiHow and Stack Exchange articles, and more can be found online or in libraries.

How long will it take to learn the violin?

As with any other job, playing the violin professionally requires years of dedication and practice. Can you give me a ballpark estimate of how long it will take to learn the violin? To be honest, that decision rests squarely in your lap. You may accomplish much in the next three to five years if you stick to a regular and consistent training regimen.

What is the best age to learn violin?


Between the ages of 5 and 7, if your kid is motivated and can pay attention, that is when they should start learning to play the violin. But if your kid is a little younger or older, that shouldn't stop you. You can obtain a referral from a music store or a teacher.

Do violin strings expire?

Strings on violins do eventually wear out, unfortunately. So, it's probably not true that someone once found an old violin in a drawer and it played brilliantly the same second it was picked up. When it comes to keeping a violin in tip-top shape for playing, routine maintenance, such as string replacement, is essential.
