Violin is a passion, an addiction, a lifestyle choice, a way to relax, a means to unlocking a new world, a hobby, at times a source of frustration and overarchingly it is a magical delight that is easy to dedicate a lifetime to, and still want a second lifetime to keep unlocking the wonders of the instrument.
Vov Dylan is a third generation musician, and a second generation Violinist.
First recognised for his Violin playing at age 21 months, he has spent his life with a Violin in hand.
Vov's first experience as a tecaher came whilst still in High School, where he was asked to start tutoring some orchestral workshops. Whilst studying at Sydney University, Vov quickly found employment in many of Sydney's local music schools from Sutherland throught to Rockdale, Gordon and Eastwood.
On receipt of his Honors Degree in Performance Studies from Sydney University, Vov was soon employed in an array of Sydney's elite schools including the GPS, Catholic Sector, and Selective High Schools. This was in addition to establishing his own private connection.
Vov delights in now teaching students overseas via Skype, where in 2018 he has had his first London students acheive High Destinctions in their ABRSM exams and teaching students in Hong Kong and Belgium.
Vov is also in regular demand for workshops and masterclasses. 2018 saw Vov being invited to Japan to do masterclasses with the Fukoshima Youth Sinfonietta on Tchaikovsky and advanced playing techniques. In 2019 Vov has received an invitation to travel to Hong Kong to teach teachers and advanced students how to acheive exceptional results from their ABRSM exams. 2019 also saw Vov be invited to Ghana to help create the "Accra Youth Sinfonietta".
Vov's students have been (and are) leaders of student orchestras, recipients of awards and scholarships, high achievers in AMEB and ABRSM exams, recording artists, Jazz performers, and professional musicians.
