My Lessons
All Ages & Genres

I have experience in teaching both young learners and adults. I would recommend starting no younger than age 7 though. I find that students under 7 tend to struggle with the physicality of learning a string instrument.

I'm able to teach a wide range of genres & would be happy to tailor our lesson course towards the genres that you want to learn & that you like to listen to in your spare time.

£14 per 1/2 hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

A Little Bit About Me

I'm a friendly and encouraging DBS checked cello teacher with experience teaching children and adults from total beginners to middling grades.

I have a flexible approach and will cater to the learning style and musical tastes of the student. My varied experience as a session cellist proves that cello doesn't have to mean only classical!

My calm and positive presence suits less confident students. I prioritise general musicianship and enjoyment of playing over jumping from grade to grade, but I am happy to enter students for ABRSM exams when suitable.

My Experience as a Cello Teacher

I have completed the Trinity Certificate of Music Educators. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music with Philosophy, a Master's degree in Music, and have completed ABRSM exams in cello (grade 8), clarinet and music theory (grade 6), piano and voice (grade 3).

I initially gained experience of instrumental teaching in schools through a rewarding voluntary role before my first paid teaching positions. Although specialising in cello, I also currently teach violin, recorder and performing arts.

I have several years of experience of teaching individual, small groups as well as whole class instrumental tuition. I have embraced online lessons in 2020 using Zoom.
