4 reviews for Sofiko Tvauri


Sofiko has been teaching my boys since the were age 5 and 6. My oldest son’s grade exam results are always Distinction. Appart of awards he already got in a past now we are preparing for RCM Junior department audition, Viena Music and Harrow International competitions. My youngest is 5 years old and he started Cello with Sofiko 9 months ago and he already did two concerts and got 1st prize at Kingston Festival. I am so happy the way Sofiko is teaching. She is very organised and her piece choices are full of variety so kids never get board. I do strongly recommend her.


Sofiko is a highly experienced, friendly and knowledgeable cello teacher. Since starting lessons with Sofiko, my son has progressed a lot more than with his previous teachers and is enjoying his lessons enormously. Her attention to detail is incredible and she always finds the best ways to explain tricky technical points so that a 10 year old can understand. I thoroughly recommend Sofiko.


Sofiko is an outstanding music teacher on several different levels: on one hand, she is inspiring as a musician in her own right, on the other hand, she is an outstanding tutor. She is patient with children and quite focused and results-oriented at the same time. She’s been teaching my children for 9 years and achieved results we’ve never thought possible. Highly reccomended!


We’ve been with this wonderful young lady for over two years now. With her help and teaching, my DD has grown a solid interest into cello, not to mention her feeling about Sofiko. Sofiko is always well prepared, patient, calm and ready to deal with any emotional disruption. The best of all is her explaination about the music piece. She would make it into a story. We were so lucky to have her.
