Beatrice - Penylan - Music Theory

Methodology

Hi, I'm Beatrice. I'm a professional freelance musician based in Cardiff having recently been appointed cellist of the Mavron String Quartet. I have a wide range of experience and teaching knowledge - available for private tuition.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach cello and music theory.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a first class BMus degree from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and a Master of Arts degree in cello performance from the Royal Academy of Music, London.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour, £25 for 45 mins and £20 for 30 mins. I usually recommend lessons of 30 mins minimum.
I can come to you if that's easier - depending on location, that may affect the price.
Student/group discounts are also available.

- Where do you teach?

I have a space to teach - a large music room with plenty of space - based near Roath Park.

If this doesn't work, I can come to you. Areas I will travel to: Roath, Heath, Llanishen, Llandaff, Canton, Grangetown, Cardiff Bay, Penarth, Cathays, Cyncoed, Ely, Whitchurch and all other surrounding areas.

- When are you available?

As a freelance musician my timetable can be quite flexible. I currently have available slots on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday evenings. Or Tuesday/Wednesday during the daytime. The best thing is to discuss what's best for both of us and see if that works from there!

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach from aged 5 upwards. There are no limits as to what age a person can start, or if you wish to pick up the cello again after a long break.
I teach from beginner standard right up to college level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

If my students would like to take exams, I'll help prepare for these. I usually do the ABRSM exam board.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can teach online - via Skype/Facetime or other methods.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have an active approach to teaching, and I try to manage every angle of cello playing - the technical difficulties and the musicality in a fresh way, using images and analogies to create an all rounded musician. I try to inspire my students the best I can so that everyone can appreciate music as an art. I think it's important to understand that every musician is different and we all learn in different ways and I try to adapt my teaching to suit the individual so to better connect with them. Having been through the primary learning system and grades myself I know what the demands are.

I have knowledge of the graded repertoire as well as teaching methods for beginners, and I would be able to assess students based on their own personal progress and development.
Music is a form of entertainment! I ensure we always have fun but I expect hard work and practice in return.

I believe none of us stop learning.
