Originally from Merthyr Tydfil Alun now lives in Windsor. As a professional violinist he has played, and continues to play regularly, with all the leading orchestras in the UK in concerts, tours and recordings.
As a recitalist Alun has given performances on BBC Radio 3 and with various chamber music groups in countless events at music clubs and concert societies. A passionate educator, Alun has developed a thriving teaching practice working with students at all levels and ages. He is also a very experienced psycho-physical teacher, helping students to understand the central role of the mind in developing skill in movement and joy in thinking. He was head of the department of Alexander teaching at Trinity: Laban for 6 years until 2018.
Alun divides his time between performing, writing and teaching.
Pauline has established herself as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader performing at major venues throughout Europe. She studied at the Royal College of Music in London and subsequently won a scholarship to the Juilliard School in New York, where she studied with Avan Galamian.
As a concerto soloist, Pauline has performed with the English Chamber Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony and Ulster Orchestras and the Academy of London. She is also a frequent soloist with The Britten Sinfonia, which she leads.
Peter manages a busy life of modern and period viola performances. As well as being a member of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Peter plays with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment as part of the Ann and Peter Law OAE Experience for young players and Southbank Sinfonia.
As well as solo and orchestral playing, Peter is much in demand as a chamber musician. He enjoys experimenting with all styles of music including soul and jazz.
When Peter is not playing the viola, he enjoys teaching: he gives private tuition on viola, violin, piano, singing, and theory, across a whole range of styles from classical to jazz, and has taught at schools.
Peter sings with choirs in London and Cambridge and occasionally plays the organ for church services.
