Professional cellist offering cello lessons in London for all ages and levels.

Methodology

I create an individual lesson format to suit the level and need of each student. I like to balance my lesson with thorough technical exercises, performance pieces and theory & harmony.

I am able to teach mixing Suzuki method, French, German, Russian and other traditional teaching methods.

Experience

Catherine strives to provide the most comprehensive music lessons for students of all level. As a teacher with over 15 years experience, Catherine balances her lessons between fun and progress, using various teaching methods, activities and technologies.

Whether you have a child at the start of their musical journey, are an adult beginner or returning to music after a break, Catherine can guide each student in the most effective and efficient way to reach the full potential.

The lessons cover every aspect of cello playing including technique, sight-reading, aural, musical expression and theory.​ Catherine has also been guiding students successfully for their ABRSM and Trinity grade exams, resulting in 100% pass rate (Merit and Distinction).

She is enthusiastic about spreading balanced and efficient music education and has set up Hampstead Music School in 2016.

As a seasoned performer playing in some of the most renowned venues, her students are also taught about concert preparations, overcoming nervousness and stage presence.

I have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate.
