Hello. I am a friendly and professional music teacher based in South London. I love teaching all ages and abilities. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I am a peripatetic music teacher. I teach cello and piano, both privately and in various schools.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Music degree from Oxford University (First Class Honours), and a Postgraduate Diploma from the Royal Academy of Music.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £30 an hour.
- Where do you teach?
I am happy to teach at home in my flat in Bermondsey, but am willing to travel as well. I currently have several students in Tufnell Park and Archway, some round Earls Court, and some in Ealing.
- When are you available?
I am very flexible about my teaching hours. A lot of my students are school children, so the lessons tend to take place in the evenings. I am also able to teach during the daytime, as with my adult students. Evenings and weekends are fine.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I currently teach students from the age of 4 to 40. I am happy with any age, and with any level of ability. I teach beginners, and post-grade 8.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
Most of my cello and piano students sit ABRSM exams. I also tutor for Grade 5 theory exams. At an undergraduate level, I prepare students at Kings College London for internal assessments.
Madeleine is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a self-employed music teacher for 5 years. I currently teach in various secondary and primary schools in London, including St Marylebone School, and Charles Edward Brooke School.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have an up-to-date CRB certificate.

I have been taught by Maddy for two years, and in this time I feel like I have achieved a lot. In lessons we always have a good laugh, however we also play a lot of music. I enjoy playing the cello a lot more than with previous teachers as it is not a strict or scary environment, but a fun and encouraging one. Maddy has changed the way I look at playing the cello. Maddy is very lively and is extremely encouraging and enthusiastic about playing music.
My daughter has been taking cello lessons from Maddy for a few years now, and she has enjoyed every lesson. Maddy has been receptive to my daughter's requests to play certain pieces, and Maddy has been very encouraging when giving new, unfamiliar pieces. Lessons have involved a combination of theory and practice, which has made the theory painless. My daughter is now considering a career in music, and I think that is largely thanks to Maddy's obvious enthusiasm for her profession.
Maddy combines sharp powers of observation with a gentleness of approach which creates a very positive atmosphere in lessons.
She is has enormous empathy with the inevitable frustrations of learning and at the same time communicates a sense of purpose and ambition which effectively moves one on with increasing confidence.
