Amelia Goodall

Amelia Goodall studied violin and chamber music at the RNCM with Christopher Rowland, and at Manchester University with soloist Leland Chen. After beginning her freelance career in London, she moved to France to study classical and romantic music on historical instruments.  Following this Amelia performed in many of the great concert halls in Paris and across Europe with François-Xavier Roth’s chamber orchestra Les Siècles. 

She was introduced to the Parisian tango music scene and took a course with bandoneonist Juan José Mosalini.

Since returning to the UK, Amelia moved to Bristol to raise a family and has particularly enjoyed performing with the Bristol Ensemble, in the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival and with Tango Calor.

More recently, she set up Lunchtime Live, a concert series in which she has performed as soloist and chamber musician.

Amelia is also a music therapist and keen music educator, specialising in the early years.  She started up the string department at the Cathedral Primary School in Bristol, where she introduced Kodály musicianship classes into the music curriculum and piloted whole class violin lessons.
