Book professional music lessons with Cello teacher Svetlana Hemmings.
Hello! My name is Svetlana and I am a professional cello tutor located in Bournemouth.
I offer enjoyable cello lesons for ages 5 and up.
I like to always maintain a high quality of tuition for all of my students.
I teach all ages but would recommend you start learning n younger than age 5.
I personally love a wide range of genres & I want this to reflect in my lessons. I will always make sure to teach you the music you love.
I have 31 years of work experience with children of various ages (5 – 15 years old).
Personalised Cello lessons available in half-hour or one-hour slots.
Half hour lessons are best for those who are considered young learners or for those who want to have a few taster lessons.
Hour lessons are my most popular option and are best suited to anyone with a drive to learn an instrument properly and has the spare time to learn at home when not at the lesson.
I am an experienced player and teacher with over 30 years of teaching experience. I have also been a Specialist Music Teacher in Primary Schools in Dorset area as well as an Instrumental Music Teacher (Cello and Piano). I finished a Music college in 1988 and a University in 2005.
When working with children and youth in general, it is important to set and provide an example of exceptional communication skills as I have observed that children tend to mimic the adults and perpetuate the behaviour exhibited by those said adults.
I like to think that my lessons are always enjoyable for my students and this is something that I would like to always ensure for all of my students.
As a trilingual person (fluent in English, Russian, and Ukrainian), my lived experience in two different countries has taught me how to be more sensitive and compassionate when teaching students. I will always help put you on the right path when it comes to learning the Cello.
I take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space in the BH11 area of Bournemouth.
I believe this is a great place to learn the cello because I have created a positive and comfortable learning environment where I hope we can unlock your full potential together.
My full address will be provided when you book your first lesson with me.
