Theo - Northwood Hills - Cello

Methodology

It is often said music is fantastic for mental and physical development of people, with whole hosts of benefits lasting through everyone's lives - what better way to enjoy music than to play an instrument as beautiful as the cello!

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Cello and Music Theory

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have graduated from a Joint Course between the Royal Northern College of Music and Manchester University - I therefore am qualified with two degrees.

DipGRNCM, BMus (Hons).

- How much do you charge?

£25 for 60 minutes

However for younger children, a 30 minute lesson may be more appropriate, at £15.

When I was a student, I often had consultation lessons with new teachers to see if the 'chemistry' was right before committing to any more lessons - I'd highly recommend this to everyone (either with myself, or any other teacher you may consider).

- Where do you teach?

I mainly teach from home, however I can travel.

I live in Northwood Hills, which is near Harrow and Watford.

It is very easy to get here from the Metropolitan Line.

- When are you available?

We can arrange this depending on what works best mutually.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All levels and ages.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

All sorts - whether for ABRSM exams, GCSE/A level performance modules, or just for fun.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The great thing about learning an instrument is that you will not only have fun by delving yourself in great music, but you will also learn a whole host of transferrable skills of studying, problem solving, performance skills, and many others that can be transferred in other areas of your life.

People who play instruments are very often highly regarded by friends, teachers and University admission recruiters - and there will be many new and exciting friends to make on your journey of learning - so there is every reason to get started.
