Alice Waten was a founding member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, holding principal positions for ten years. During this period extensive tours were undertaken throughout Europe, Asia and Australasia. Alice Waten plays on a Paolo Antonio Testore 1743 violin.

 

However, her interest in the training of violinists was inspired early in her career and has been a consistent force in her professional life. Her rigorous training, years as a performer, teaching experience, continuing study and interest in the development of new string pedagogy trends throughout the world have contributed to her success. The Australian musical community has been greatly enriched by the achievements of her students.
