I am an imaginative and friendly teacher and an experienced and versatile cellist who has performed internationally with leading ensembles on both period and modern instruments for 25 years.

I studied with the great American pedagogue Steven Doane (among other distinguished maestri) and as a result I have many 'pearls of cello wisdom' to pass on!

I have taught at the Royal College of Music since 2003 and I offer both individual lessons and chamber music coaching to private students and adult amateurs. I aim to demystify technical problems, to help you develop strong musical instincts and most of all to have fun and enjoy the process!

I usually have a teaching studio just off Highbury Fields but currently lessons are online only. I have given several lessons on Skype, and I now have a Zoom account, as well as Whats App and FaceTime. I am happy to scan & email any practice tips or lesson notes as required. Obviously it's not quite the same as working 1:1 but it seems to be going well so far and the music industry is being very helpful, sending us advice regarding sound quality etc.

Since my busy performing schedule is cancelled until further notice, I am able to be very flexible regarding lesson times, while the "new normal" daily routine settles in.
