About the lesson

Your progress, understanding and enjoyment are my mission.
Study with me - I won't let you down!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach cello and composition, and am also happy to coach chamber music.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a Masters of Music from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and a Bachelors of Music from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. Both of these are in cello. Additionally, I have an Endorsement in String Teaching from the RCS, and was also the winner of the Violoncello Challenge Prize and the Dinah Wolfe Memorial Award for Composition while I studied there.

- How much do you charge?

The first consultation lesson is free for cello - not for theory as this tends to be much more short-term. After that, I charge £45 pounds per hour, and offer a 10% discount for advance block bookings of six lessons. Additionally, I offer a free lesson to any student who successfully recommends me to another person for lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I am based in the Cricklewood area of north west London (nearest stations Willesden Green, Cricklewood, Brondesbury, Kilburn), but also teach a lot in Acton and Ealing, as I used to be based in west London. I can teach at my home, or travel to you. Outside of this, I am happy to travel further if it is mutually convenient - be aware that under extreme circumstances I may charge an additional £5 if I have to travel too far to teach, but this can be negotiated.

- When are you available?

I have a very flexible schedule, and spend most of my time in London - so a solution for timetabling lessons can almost always be found.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Over the years, I have given lessons to students whose ages range from 3-80s, and the level has ranged from complete beginner to ABRSM Diploma standard. Additionally, I have taught theory up to ABRSM Grade 7.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Where employed, online tutoring will come as a reinforcement for lessons where both parties are present.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

With optimism, perseverance, care and enjoyment, anyone can be the player of their dreams!

About Patrick Tapio

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have had my own classes in Dormers Wells High School, in William Ellis High School (through Young Music Makers), and in my own private class. Additionally, I have taught through RCS Musicworks and on the London Philharmonic Orchestra's "Have A Go" workshops, and have volunteered for Hackney Music Service. All told, I have around ten years of teaching experience. Obviously this has mainly been in teaching cello - but I have also been called upon at various points to teach all other string instruments, theory and musicianship, and conduct school string orchestras.

In 2015 I was a member of Southbank Sinfonia. Apart from collaborating with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, BBC Concert Orchestra and Academy of St Martin in the Fields, I also was involved in many projects with young people of all ages: mentoring students from Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School and Marlborough College in side-by-side projects; running workshops with In Harmony Lambeth; and even presenting one of our family concerts at Cadogan Hall!

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

Yes I do.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I studied cello at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Richard Lester and Alexander Baillie, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with Robert Irvine and Myra Chahin, and privately with William Conway. Additionally, I studied composition at the RCS with David Fennessy and J Simon van Der Walt.

Additionally, I have performed in masterclasses to the likes of Johannes Goritzki, Rebecca Gilliver, Alexander Baillie, Pierre Doumenge, Thomas Carroll and Raphael Wallfisch.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

I have been a member of the European String Teachers' Association for the past eight years, and a member of PRS for about the same amount of time. I have also recently joined the Musicians' Union.
