I offer private cello lessons and music theory tuition to people of all ages and abilities in South West London. Over the past eight years I have been teaching a range of complete beginners up to undergraduates. I am able to prepare students for ABRSM grades and Trinity College London Diplomas, or teach them for whatever goals they wish to achieve.
My approach focuses on developing technique and musicality in an enjoyable way that keeps the body free of tension, encouraging the student to experiment during their practice to understand overcome issues. I believe that practice and performance can and should be enjoyable, and this is reflected in my style of teaching.
I graduated with 1st class honours in music performance from the University of Leeds with the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Performance. During my third year I studied at the Conservatorio di Verona, Italy where I participated in a variety of chamber music and developed my Italian Language.
I have enjoyed a long career of orchestral playing and have been Principal Cellist of The Peak District String Orchestra (PDSO); The University of Leeds School of Music's Orchestra; The Leeds University Music Society's (LUUMS) Symphony and Chamber Orchestras.
I am also an experienced soloist having performed J.C Bach's Cello Concerto in C Minor with the PDSO and Elgar's Cello Concerto in E Minor with the LUUMS Symphony Orchestra in both Leeds and Koblenz, Germany.
I have recently taken up a position on the Council's panel of teachers at Wandsworth Schools' Music Service to teach at their Music Academy.
Cancellation Policy: 48 hours in advance- if lessons are cancelled less than 48 hours in advance, you will still be charged for the lesson.
