- Where do you teach?

I teach at my home in Gipsy Hill. I can travel to you if you're not too far from mine.

- When are you available?

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!

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

Performing experience: 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: The Girls Musical, Kinky Boots, and An American In Paris. Recent orchestral work includes Manchester Camerata and Manchester Concert Orchestra.
