The fourth generation of a musical family, Juliette was born in London and began her violin studies at the age of 5. Her musicality was quickly recognised with a first prize at the North London Music Festival and she later joined the Royal Academy of Music, Junior Department. Between 2006-2008, Juliette lived in Singapore where she played regularly in solo and chamber music concerts as well as enjoying her first performance with full orchestra, Sarasate’s “Ziguenerweisen”. Juliette joined Music Festivals and Chamber master classes in England, The Netherlands and USA.
In September 2008, Juliette won entry to the Yehudi Menuhin School to pursue her music centered education, studying with Professor Lutsia Ibragimova (YMS and Royal College of Music, London). She played in master classes for many leading professors including Zakhar Bron, Pavel Vernikov, Lewis Kaplan, Takaya Urakawa, Lydia Mordkovitch and Natasha Boyarsky. Juliette’s passion for chamber music developed at YMS alongside her soloistic successes and orchestral education with performances in the UK, France, Italy and Asia.
Juliette’s performances in the BBC Young Musician 2012 contest drew high praise from the Strings Final jury who described her playing as “Absolutely spellbinding.” Juliette was the first placed violinist and won the Walter Todds Bursary Prize. Subsequent engagements included Bruch, Violin Concerto no.1 with City of Southampton Orchestra; Beethoven, Triple Concerto in Wales; Lark Ascending at Canterbury Cathedral and her graduation recital with the Yehudi Menuhin School at Wigmore Hall, London.
Juliette completed her Bachelor degree at the Haute Ecole de Musique, site de Sion, Switzerland under the tutelage of Professor Pavel Vernikov. In this time she gave recitals across Switzerland as well as participating in the prestigious Sion Tibor Varga Festival. In the Summer of 2015, she won third prize as well as a special prize for the best interpretation of a virtuoso piece in the Kloster Schontal International violin competition in Germany.
In the autumn of 2016, Juliette returned to London for her Master’s degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Professor David Takeno. She was awarded a full scholarship for her studies, given generous support from the Countess of Munster Trust and the Manoug Parikian award from the Help Musicians Foundation. Now focusing, primarily, on chamber playing, Juliette has collaborated in various chamber groups with notable performances at Barbican Concert Hall, LSO St. Luke’s and St. Johns Smith Square.
