ESA Suzuki teachers Level 3
Instruments: Cello and beginner double bass
Genre/Style(s): Classical and more
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


A level 3 suzuki qualified cello teacher, I base my teaching on the suzuki repertoire, and am happy to include grades if desired. Although designed with small children in mind I find the suzuki method can be tailored to work well with all ages. I place a really strong emphasis on developing the most natural technique based on perfect body use. Adult students will be encouraged to analyse their own body use in relation to cello playing (and everything else). Children will be guided in developing a natural technique, thereby avoiding the dreaded ´relearning´ process when older.
I also teach beginner double bass using the ´George Vance Method´ which gets students using the whole instrument right from the very beginning with positions based on the main harmonics of the instruments. This gets students reading in bass and treble clef right from the start. Please see my website for more details
