I believe all people should be able to feel the physical and emotional benefits of playing an instrument, this is why I offer lessons to students of all ages and abilities from 5+. It is never too early or late to start learning a musical instrument. The important part is that you just start.

I like to create a tailored lesson plan for each student, based on their goals and their favourite music. So you can learn to play the Cello while playing the music you love.
