I prefer to travel to your house but can teach at mine if necessary.

My timetable is very flexible. I am confident I can find a time that suits us both.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and abilities - you are never too old to start!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare my students for any exams, but the most popular choice is the ABRSM Graded Examinations. I am also able to prepare students for scholarship auditions, music college auditions and orchestral auditions. Learning for fun is also great!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I look forward to meeting you, and showing you how rewarding learning the cello is! Let's make music!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught both privately and in schools for many years. I have also given many cello sectionals and coached various different chamber ensembles. In 2013, I was a cello professor at Leeds College of Music where I taught on the Further Education course.

As a performer I have years of experience freelancing all over the world. I regularly record for film and television, and frequently appear on BBC Radio 4. Recent engagements include performing on the following West Ends shows: Hamilton, Company, The Girls Musical, Kinky Boots, An American In Paris. I have worked with various singers such as Gary Barlow, Ellie Goulding, Katherine Jenkins, Russell Watson and Aled Jones.

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

- Where and with whom did you train?
Royal Northern College of Music: Emma Ferrand (DipRAM, ARAM, FRNCM)
Leeds College of Music: Juliet Welchman and Judith Burgin (DipRCM, ARCM)

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?
The Musician's Union.
European String Teachers Association.

- Tell me about some of your current students:
My current students include those taking ABRSM Graded Examinations, and those wanting to learn for fun. They also vary in age - from 9 to 70+!
