Cello Teacher North London - Johanna Ala-Soini

Methodology

I am an experienced, kind and patient cello teacher with a great sense of humour and genuine love for music.
I want my students to experience the deep joy music and creativity can bring to one's life and take great care that my teaching style supports this.
I have a keen interest in the Alexander Technique and help my students to adapt healthy ways of using their body during cello playing from the very beginning hence decreasing the risk of injuries and discomfort during later stages of musical training.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the Cello.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BMus (Hons) from Sibelius-Academy, Helsinki.
I am currently studying towards a qualification as an Alexander Technique teacher.

- How much do you charge?

I charge 30£ per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I mostly travel to my students' homes but lessons at my place in N10 are also possible. I teach in Muswell Hill, Highgate, East Finchley, Crouch End and Central London.

- When are you available?

Weekday afternoons and evenings. I also have some weekend lesson times available if that would be more convenient to you.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels are welcome.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

We work towards the ABRSM exams when my students so wish but if you prefer to have lessons just for fun, without the pressure of exam preparation I am also happy to offer that.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching the cello since my late teens.
I also have extensive experience playing and performing in chamber music and cello ensembles as well as playing solo and in an orchestra.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I don't have one but would be happy to undergo the process if requested.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied at Sibelius-Academy with professor Martti Rousi and have also been a private pupil of the British cellist Robert Cohen for a couple of years.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I am a student member of the Society of the Teachers of the Alexander Technique.
