Charlotte began learning the violin at the age of three with her mother, Heather Clemson, who trained with Dr Suzuki in Japan. Whilst growing up, she enjoyed playing in string quartets, ensembles, and in orchestras including the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
After studying Music at Oxford University, Charlotte became a qualified Level 5 ESA Suzuki Teacher. In addition to her work with her own students in south west London, she teaches as part of the Dulwich Suzuki Group, Lauderdale Suzuki Group, and on a number of Suzuki residential courses and workshops.
Alongside teaching, Charlotte has gained experience in the world of arts management, and has worked for the London Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra.
