I am an enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced cello teacher based in Chiswick, west London.
I am very keen to demystify the art of cello playing and disprove the popular myth that playing a musical instrument is incredibly difficult. The cello is an instrument very much in tune with our natural physicality and how we use our weight and my aim is to help her students develop the aural, physical and creative skills that will allow them to play with enjoyment, ease and with the minimum of tension and worry. For this reason I am keen to encourage not only young players but also adult students who tend to worry more than most.
Under my performing name (Laura Moody) I have a successful performing career and am known for being a particularly diverse and adventurous musician embracing many musical genres. As a member of the acclaimed string quartet Elysian Quartet I have coached chamber music and run workshops at Dartington International Summer School, The Orpheus Centre and indeed everywhere from primary schools to universities all over the country. I am an honorary fellow of the University of Liverpool.
