Charlotte Pinder - Violin

Charlotte hails from Rotherham and learnt the violin with the Rotherham Music Service in the 1990s.  She went on to study music at the University of Wales, Bangor, where she cultivated a particular interest in the performance of Baroque music.

Charlotte taught the violin for the Doncaster Music Service for several years, and more recently she trained for her Masters in Music Therapy with Nordoff Robbins, the UK’s largest music therapy charity.  She now delivers music therapy in local special schools, and at the Children’s Hospital in Sheffield, making connections with children who have a variety of difficulties and needs through music.

Charlotte enjoys playing the violin with a number of local groups and performs regularly as a soloist, both with orchestras and in solo recitals.  She has played with the Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra as a member for many years, and this will be her second solo appearance with us.
