Back to all players

Joanne Green

Australian by birth, Joanne followed her dreams on the violin and at the age of 23 found herself in London at the Royal College of Music on a postgraduate scholarship.

Never heading back to the antipodes, she found her musical home with the Scottish Ensemble, an organisation she has been a member of since 2003. The ensemble explores how music can be performed, shared and enjoyed by performers and audiences alike – with thought-provoking collaborations. The creative, innovative mindset generated by the group spills over into the rest of Joanne’s life, influencing how she approaches the rest of her portfolio career, which includes the Bristol Ensemble.

Joanne is passionate about sharing her music skills. She is a member of the Somerset Music Education Hub’s advisory board, Deputy Chair of the European String Teachers Association UK (ESTA UK), and the founder of Breathe Music. She is currently a visiting music specialist at Wells Cathedral School and Kings Bruton School in Somerset, and enjoys being a tutor for the National Children’s Orchestra (NCO).
