Jocelyn began learning the violin and the viola at a young age. She grew up playing in multiple local orchestras and attending holiday chamber music courses, as well as gaining a position in the National Children's Orchestra of Great Britain. She developed a love of ensemble playing. When studying for her Bachelors degree in Music at King's College London, she continued playing, joining the Symphony Orchestra and playing in String Quartets and other ensembles. Following this, Jocelyn gained a Masters in Composition from City, University of London, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
Jocelyn has a portfolio career including performing, composing, and teaching. She is a member of a barn dance band, playing for events in London and the Southeast, and enjoys teaching the violin at Sutton Music Centre and privately. In her teaching she works to build good technique and knowledge of theory, so as to increase the enjoyment that playing the violin can bring.
Setareh combines her passion for playing the violin with her experience as a yoga practitioner and teacher to give students a unique understanding of their musical potential.
Understanding how breathing influences our performance is a crucial part of becoming a natural performer. Working from the principal that the body is our primary musical instrument, Setareh goes beyond notes, teaching optimised technique and helping students express themselves completely through the violin.
