Lindsay Braga

Lindsay has extensive experience of the professional classical music scene from recording and performing chamber music to orchestral playing and she feels very grateful for the help she received as a youngster which enabled her to access the profession. Lindsay has always felt very drawn towards helping young people find their way in music.

After studying at the Junior Royal College of Music Lindsay went on to the Royal Northern College of Music to study with Richard Deakin. After leaving college she carried on studying privately with Wen Zhou Li.

From 1993 until 2007 Lindsay freelanced as a first violinist with the BBC Philharmonic and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. She has also worked with Manchester Camerata, Scottish Ballet, Welsh National Opera, English National Opera and The Halle./div>

Lindsay has been involved with the education teams at The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Manchester Camerata and also in education work with her own string quartets. Since moving to the South West Lindsay is now playing with the Haldon Quartet and Haldon Duo and the Divertimento String Quartet amongst many other musical groups.

For over 30 years Lindsay has taught children to play the violin both in schools and privately, from complete beginners to music college students, from children of 3 to adults. Lindsay teaches every child and young person with the enthusiasm and commitment that she would like to be shown to her own children.
