Miss Iris Boulton

I have been playing the cello from the age of 10 (so for nearly 10 years!), although, having been surrounded by and brought up by musicians and music teachers I have sung and tried out various different instruments from as far back as I can remember!

I passed my grade 8 cello exam (ABRSM) with a distinction in 2015 and have been taking lessons, practicing and playing keenly since then.

From 2015-2017 I held the position of coaching assistant for Penzance Junior Strings, helping and supporting the 17-strong ensemble to learn new music while sharing my musical knowledge and enthusiasm with the players both in rehearsals and concerts.

Although I am classically trained, I have participated in many music workshops of varied genres. I believe it is important to stay open minded and to learn from all genres and to immerse yourself in orchestras, bands, and ensembles as well as practicing solo. I completely support and recommend musical immersion by listening to concerts, recorded music and watching you-tube or live master-classes!

Having played with the Penzance Youth String Orchestra, Cornwall Youth Orchestra, South West Youth Orchestra, Royal Welsh College of Music's Symphony Orchestra, Cardiff University Strings, Cardiff University Symphony Orchestra, Cardiff University Concert Orchestra and the Penwith Piano Quartet, I have been lucky to play in many venues including the Symphony Hall Birmingham and the Royal Albert Hall London as well as around 200 local concerts and festivals.

I have also been a member of the South West Music School for 4 years.
Instruments: Cello
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Intermediate


I am keen to start teaching students 1-1 privately in Cardiff or in surrounding areas (I am happy to travel to your house as long as it's not too far out of the city!)

A student myself, I am happy to teach pupils of any age.

I would feel comfortable teaching beginners to approximate grade 6.

I hold an enhanced DBS - November 2015.
