Essi studied violin at the Royal College of Music and graduated from the Master of Performance course in 2015. Since graduation she has been part of Southbank Sinfonia, played in Kymi Sinfonietta for the season 2016/17, and freelanced with orchestras such as the LPO. Currently Essi divides her time between performing and teaching. She does recording sessions and plays in the violin-piano duo Aeon, with whom she has travelled to perform in Scotland, Finland, Italy and Mexico.
Essi has been teaching violin since 2014 both in primary schools and privately, and specialises in beginners and young children. She has recently joined DaCapo to expand her knowledge further in the Kodály system. She believes anyone can learn to play the violin and the benefits of learning an instrument will reflect in all areas of life.
Currently Essi teaches at the DaCapo Foundation, Christ Church Primary School in Chelsea and privately in West London.
