Bunker Hill Jersey


Cert ED, ABRSM DIP, Suzuki Cert Violin. (Violin)


On leaving school, Vanessa studied Music and English at St Mark and St John's Teacher Training College, London. Subsequently she taught violin and piano in London, Hackney as well as becoming a Special Needs teacher. Vanessa played violin as part of the resident band at Epping folk club over this time. Moving to Sidcot School in Somerset, and as assistant housemistress, Vanessa continued to teach violin and piano as well as class music also setting up a folk club there. 

Next, living in Bath, she continued to teach, violin/viola and piano peripatetic in Primary and Secondary Bath and Bristol schools, and was involved in the emerging folk/ethinic music scene there, as well as with the Bath Festival. 

Living near Cheddar in the Mendips, Vanessa continued to pursue her love of folk music and roots genre, once again joining a ceilidh band (the Old Fox Band) and helped to set up an Irish Music Saturday School (mainly adults) in Avonmouth Bristol. She also took part in quartets and classical ensembles. 

During this time Vanessa completed a Suzuki violin teacher training Course in London. Returning to Jersey, she has continued teaching initially with the Jersey Music Services, but now with the Jersey Academy of Music. 

She has enjoyed playing in the Jersey Chamber Orchestra, the Jersey Sinfonietta and of course the Jersey Symphony Orchestra, as well as No Strings Attached Quartet. 

Having given performances of Music with Poetry, she is interested in using music as a means of communication. Playing in Badlabecques has also helped to develop this link, as well as return to her Jersey roots by helping to develop initiatives to encourage the wider use and knowledge of Jerriais.
