I am experienced at working with students across a range of ages and levels. I take flexible approach taking into account the needs of each individual child.

Work in Our Cello Community SW4 home studio is centred in the Suzuki Method. The first step to applying to take lessons here is to start by observing some current lessons in action (no charge for this). Priority for offers of places will be given to families of new beginners age approx 4-6, who have undertaken a series of observations first.

Parents are expected to be involved in lessons and regular practice. All students participate in Suzuki group programmes in addition to their individual lessons (usually 6 Saturday mornings a term).

Details of fees available upon application.
