Previously a violinist, Athena wanted to explore the other side of the orchestra and to gain a different perspective. Two years later, she switched position and is now beginning her journey as a trombonist in AYO!
Athena is currently studying Classical Performance specialising in trombone at the University of Auckland under Douglas Cross. Besides AYO, she is also involved in several community bands.
Athena is passionate about teaching, composing music and looking after musicians’ hauora.
