My name is Viktorija Van Der Vesthuizen and I come from the beautiful city of Vilnius in Lithuania. In 2006 I moved to Dubai with my family and we loved every minute of it.
This is my 5th year teaching in SCS and I feel truly blessed to be part of such wonderful community.
As a child, I was captivated by music as my parents were both professional musicians. My father is a jazz pianist, composer, and my mother is a music educator.
It wasn’t just theaters, orchestras and music schools, but also concert halls, music studios, and backstage tours that impacted my life most. My father is my biggest inspiration as he introduced me to it all. Since then I made it my goal to always have music in my life and share it with people. I pursued classical and jazz piano as well as singing studies since the age of 5.
I love spending time with my family, cooking, travelling and learning new languages.
In 2006 I graduated from Vilnius Academy of Music and Theatre with a Bachelor’s degree in Music education. I have been lucky enough to experience the diverse Dubai Music scene where I taught Music in schools since 2007, coordinated an Instrumental program as well as performed in many different events, including the Dubai Film Festival. I am looking forward to inspire and share my passion for Music with my students.
