Maeve Jenkinson has many years experience as a professional musician, having been a member of the first violins of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and lead the orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall and Glyndebourne. She has had the privilege of working with some of the worlds finest conductors, such as Sir George Solti, Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle, Kurt Masur and Klaus Tensstedt and this experience has had a lasting influence on her as a musician. She has also worked with world class ensembles such as I Solisti Veneti and the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields. 
As a student Maeve was a Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music where she won the top prizes for violin and chamber music. She was awarded scholarships from the Royal Society of Arts, and Countess of Munster Musical Trust to further her studies in the USA with Josef Gingold, and a Full Fellowship to study with Naoko Tanaka and Dorothy Delay at the Aspen Music Festival for four years. Josef Gingold described her as “one of the finest violinists I have taught”. 
Maeve has over twenty years of private teaching experience and currently combines running a private teaching studio, with a busy concert schedule. She is in demand as a soloist and chamber ensemble player, continues to play regularly with the London Philharmonic, and has been the Musical Director of the Corelli Ensemble since 2009.
