I am an approachable, open-minded teacher, who can adapt to the student`s needs and personality. If you want to learn or further develop your skills on the cello in a fun, relaxed way, don`t hesitate to get in contact!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught privately for 6 years to pupils of a wide range of levels, ages and abilities. As part of my studies at Trinity Laban, I have undergone an LTCL Instrumental Vocal Teaching course. During this course, I have gained much knowledge and practical experience on different traditional and contemporary teaching methods, and insights into how to incorporate different aspects of one`s musical development into one lesson. I am also an experienced chamber and orchestral musician, being part of many chamber groups and youth orchestras during and after my studies.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I hold an up to date DBS certificate.

I have studied with Anna Gaspar for 10 years in Arad, Romania, whilst having private lessons with Alexandra Gutu and Marin Cazacu, both internationally acclaimed Romanian cellists. During my studies at Trinity Laban I have studied with Joely Koos for my bachelor degree, and Naomi Butterworth for my masters degree. I have also participated in master-classes and music courses with Raphael Wallfisch, Matthew Barley, Laszlo Fenyo, Robert Max and Razvan Suma.
