Experienced cellist and teacher offering cello lessons in Bristol, all ages and abilities welcome!


I have been playing professionally as well as teaching privately and in schools since graduating in 2012. I have explored various methods of teaching such as Colourstrings and Dalcroze. Each student is unique and I enjoy finding what fits best for them!


I am an enthusiastic and dedicated peripatetic cello teacher with experience in orchestral, ensemble and individual educational settings. I encourage my students to become musically independent by constantly broadening their imaginations and skill base, helping them to develop a unique musical voice.
