FROM the renowned concert halls of Europe to the Fraser Coast, Claudia Zorbas-Rajnaine is bringing the sound of music to the region.

For 10 years, the violinist performed and competed at an international level.

She won prizes in countries including Hungary, Poland and Italy.

Finally, however, she wanted to come home to Australia.

"I came to a point where I really wanted to start teaching," she said.

Hearing about Maryborough through some friends, Ms Zorbas-Rajnaine moved to the Fraser Coast last year and is looking to share her skills.

"I'm willing to teach any age group," she said.

One student was only five years old and she also helps some older students at Urangan State School.

"You have to introduce a love of the music first, before they even pick up an instrument," she said.

Ms Zorbas-Rajnaine said coming from a musical family helped her develop her love of music at a young age, and she was given a quarter-size violin at the age of four.

She was accepted to the Franz Lizst Academy in Budapest, Hungary when she was 11.

The world of music opened up to her. Ms Zorbas-Rajnaine said she was still learning even as she teaches.
