Moving Music Joint Lead Artist
Fay Guiffo is a French musician and multidisciplinary artist. She perfected her violin practice at the Ecole Normale De Musique De Paris and developed a solid expertise in classical violin repertoire. Her performances include playing classical improvisations and original compositions, finding inspiration in poetry and literature. She deepened her teaching skills by undertaking a M.Ed Teaching Performing Arts at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and looks forward to applying principles she has learnt here in her first project with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Moving Music. She will bring her unique teaching style to the project, using dance and drama practices to explore classical music with primary aged children.
Her music film Queen of Hearts (2020) has been selected by Women of the Lens Film Festival and received an Honourable Mention at the Amsterdam Filmmakers Festival and at Screen Power Film Festival.
Learning music through movements is such an enjoyable experience. I think it will be a special moment for children and I am excited to be part of this beautiful initiative.
