Yvette founded the Rosewood String Quartet in 2013 and is the point of contact for all enquiries.

Yvette began playing at the age of 8 and later went on to study music at the University of Glasgow. There she received tuition on both violin and viola, focussing on the latter as her principal study. Yvette graduated with a first class honours degree in music (BMus) and was awarded the Muriel Thorne Hague Memorial Prize for achieving the greatest distinction in class work and in performance on a musical instrument. 


She founded the Rosewood String Quartet whilst studying and has played at a huge variety of live events with the group since. As a freelance violist she is regularly engaged in a variety of work - performing in different styles be it as part of larger orchestras or in smaller community concerts and has worked with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra of Scottish Opera, the Scottish Concert Orchestra, Glasgow Barons and Nevis Ensemble.


Outside the realms of classical music she has recorded for television (including Amazon Prime TV series ‘Modern Love’) and played with a variety of musicians such as singer songwriters, electronic composers and Scottish folk musicians such as Karen Mathieson and Donald Shaw - with whom she performed at the Scottish parliament’s 20th anniversary ceremony in front of HM The Queen, which was broadcast live on television. Through her varied work she has performed throughout Scotland, the UK and across Europe in Germany, Portugal, Switzerland and France.

Alongside her performing work Yvette also teaches upper strings part time at Ardvreck and Clifton Hall schools.
