Sian also gives on and off-set coaching for actors and supporting artists. Can an untrained Actor act/mime the art of playing a violin convincingly?
In March 2011, Sian was called upon to coach 30 supporting actors during the making of a Bollywood movie Desi Boys, in Oxford, working under the direction of choreographer Bosco Caesar.
"Only one of the SAs had any previous violin playing experience but all needed to look like they knew what they were doing. The results were pretty convincing."
