I teach the cello in a way that is fun and engaging. I believe that grades can be useful targets and markers, however there is much more to learning an instrument than passing exams so I let my pupils decide if they want to take that route. I structure my lessons to include work on technique, building a strong base with exercises and scales to allow for more enjoyment from all the amazing music that is out there. I also like to play cello with my students - sometimes working on duets - as I believe it builds confidence and it can be a lot more enjoyable to play with someone rather than on your own all the time.
At 21 years old, I am a third year undergraduate studying the Cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London. I completed my A-levels at the Purcell School of music in Watford. I attended the Royal Academy of Music's Junior department for 4 years, and played with the National Youth String Orchestra of Great Britain, leading the cello section for 2 of my 4 years with them. I have about 3 years of teaching experience with beginners up to grade 6.
For younger students and beginners up to about grade 3 or 4 I suggest half an hour lessons (£15), and for older or more advanced players 45 minute lessons (£23) are more beneficial. However each case is individual and if you want longer I'm more than happy to arrange that. Generally anyone playing grade 6/7 and upwards should have an hours lesson (£30) in order to fit enough in.
