« Alicja is fantastic - she has outstanding technical and musical faculties on the cello, and a brilliant work ethic. As a professional cellist and colleague of Alicja’s, I regularly ask her advice and opinions as I prepare for concerts and auditions, and I find her thoughts to be a massive help! She explains things so well, and has a vast knowledge to back up what she says. Highly recommend!! »

Guildhall School of Music and Drama graduate, experienced teacher and performer welcomes cello students of all levels.

Methodology

I am an enthusiastic teacher ready to give lessons for students of any levels, from the beginner to a professional.
I tailor the format of the lessons based on the individual needs of the student. I like to create the right balance between technical exercises, singing and sight-reading exercises and the classical cello repertoire.


Experience

I am a polish-born cellist, graduate of Guildhall School of Music and Drama in Master of Performance. Currently I hold a position of a Jr Fellow at GSMD. I'm a prizewinner of many international cello competitions, as well as a frequent participant of many international festivals. I am a keen orchestra and chamber musician, collaborating with many orchestras in UK and Europe, as well as with the London based Knox Quartet.
I have been a private cello tutor in Poland during my first-degree studies as well as in London during my postgraduate studies. My main focus is to teach my students how to practice on their own and help them develop an individual way of working and thinking about the music. I strongly believe enjoying the music is the main purpose of learning the instrument, therefore I try my best to help my students put all the obstacles (such as technical problems) away, in order to be satisfied and enjoy the music-making.

I have been working and collaborating alongside Alicja for several years and I always look forward to performing with her. Alicja's passion, energy, and commitment to music allow her to be at her best at all times and give her full attention to the task at hand, whether that be sharing the joy of music with a pupil or performing at a high level. It is my opinion that she would be an excellent tutor for learners both young and old.

I know Alicja couple years and can honestly say that she is an amazing and really experienced cellist. She is also very nice, reliable and responsible person. I recommend her as cello teacher very highly!
