Musician, teacher, coach

Hello! My name is Gwendolyn Cawdron (formerly Fisher), although everybody calls me Gwen. I'm Associate Principal Viola in the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. I am also a violin and viola teacher, teaching students of all ages and abilities. Originally from Chicago, I now reside in Liverpool and teach from my home near Princes Park.

My teaching

"Gwen understands that good technique is at the heart of all great playing... Once the technique is developing, she encourages musicality in all sorts of creative ways.
The result has been some breathtaking playing and a child who loves the viola."

Classically trained & forward thinking


It's no secret - I love to teach! I teach students of all ages, abilities and experience. My aim is for students to  play with awareness and excellence and love what they do.

I am fortunate to have studied and performed with world-class musicians around the globe. This influences my playing and teaching.
