Lynette Stulting's piano career started in South Africa, where she studied under Joseph Stanford at the University of Pretoria. She continued her studies under Professor Gyorgy Nador at the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest.

Lynette has been the recipient of many bursaries and completed BMus, BMus (Hons) and MMus (Performance) all Cum Laude. She also completed UNISA’s Performer’s Licentiate as well as the Teacher’s Licentiate for which she received the P J Lemmer Overseas Scholarship. She has won several national competitions and appeared as soloist with the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra, the Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, Cape Town Symphony orchestra, the Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Chamber Orchestra and several others.

Lynette is a chamber music player and versatile accompanist. She is a highly experienced teacher whose students have won competitions at UK national level. Lynette taught piano at the RCM JuniorDepartment for several years and still teaches there on a part time basis. She was appointed Head of Piano at Abingdon School in September 2017. She travels extensively as an examiner for the Associated Board and adjudicates regularly. She has also recently given masterclasses and performed in Dingyong Province, China.

Lynette is also an accomplished violinist, and has played in professional orchestras for many years.


Known for her thoughtful interpretations and wide-ranging repertoire and interests, Anna Snesar is a Siberian violinist and mezzo-soprano from the city of Barnaul. She gave her solo debut on the violin aged fourteen playing "Summer" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons with the Altai State Chamber Orchestra, after which she worked closely as a soloist with both the Altai State Symphony Orchestra and the Altai State Folk Orchestra for a number of years.

She studied violin performance with the well-known teachers Alexei Gvozdev and Valery Karchagin as a postgraduate in Novosibirsk Conservatoire, where she also took part in several masterclasses with world-leading teacher Zakhar Bron.

Before moving to Oxford in 2013, she won prizes at a number of international competitions both within Russia and further afield, and gave many recitals and concerts around Russia. Her repertoire has included solo works by Bach, Paganini and Ysaye as well as concerti by Khachaturian, Prokofiev, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Bruch, Glazunov and Tchaikovsky.

She also developed an interest in both contemporary improvisatory techniques and singing. Since moving to Oxford, she has been giving a number of chamber recitals within Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, including at the 2017 Dorchester Festival.

She has taken singing lessons with respected teacher Fiona Dobie since 2013 and has a particular interest in Russian language songs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These include works by familiar composers as well as far less familiar 'futurist' pieces by composers such as Zaderatsky.

Since the birth of her two children in 2010 and 2015 she has also gained an interest in early childhood musical development, and is currently the director of Oxford Suzuki Violin Studio.
