« During the last twelve months my daughter has enjoyed excellent tutoring in the guitar from Tom Shelley. Her technique, knowledge and enjoyment of lessons have all benefited from Tom's attention to detail, wide knowledge and cheery demeanour. My daughter has enjoyed the last twelve months immensely and is very much looking forward to continuing her lessons with Tom in the future. »

Thomas - Carfax - Cello

Methodology

I'm a cellist and a composer with several years of teaching experience. Please take a moment to listen to my playing (bottom of page).

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach the Cello and Double Bass to Grade 8 +/advanced level. I also teach classical guitar and piano up to grade 8. I will teach any kind of academic music (theory and history, etc) including harmony and counterpoint and also composition. I am happy to prepare students for university entrance exams/interviews and give lessons in essay writing and take on proof-reading work.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

BA in Music, University of Oxford.
MMus, TrinityLaban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Grade 8 (Dist.) Cello
Grade 8 (Dist.) Double bass
Grade 8 (Dist.) Classical Guitar
Grade 7 (Dist.) Piano

- How much do you charge?

I charge the above fees. For musical instrument students I will give a free 30 minute consultation lesson. If I am travelling a long way I may ask for a contribution to my travel expenses.

- Where do you teach?

In Oxford I can teach at my house, but in London I tend to travel to the students own home.

- When are you available?

I am available most evenings and weekends. I am often free during the day but it is better that we make contact and discuss specific days and times.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am prepared to teach the above musical instruments and theory to all ages and standards.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

ABRSM graded music exams or Trinity/Guildhall if they prefer. All four of the main exam boards for GCSE and A-level subjects, but do let me know before we begin which course you are on so I can be sure I am focusing our energies in the right directions.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching all of the above subjects/disciplines at some point or other over the last 5 years. While the majority of my pupils have been (and are) young children, I have taught a handful of more mature pupils.

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

I am in the process of applying for an up-to-date CRB disc. Cert., please contact me regarding the status of this.

- Where and with whom did you train?

My cello teachers have included Simon Webb (former cellist and chairman of LPO), Raphael Wallfisch (World-renowned soloist) and Natalia Pavlutskaya. I have played in masterclasses with Matthew Barley, Bernard Gregor-Smith, Robert Cohen, Christoph Richter, Gregor Horsch, Katherine Jenkinson and Emma Ferrand. I perform regularly as a soloist or in various ensembles and orchestras and I have performed concertos by Schumann, Haydn and Saint-Saens. As a composer I have studied with Robert Saxton and Martin Suckling and briefly with Gary Carpenter and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies also.
