Keep your lessons going through the Coronavirus outbreak! I am currently offering lessons over Skype, Google Hangouts and WhatsApp.

I teach the Cello alongside, working as a self-employed Stone Carver and Artist. I have been teaching the Cello since 2009. During this time I have taught all ages and abilities in Schools and privately. I come from a very musical background, both of my parents are Professional Classical Musicians and music has and always will be very important to me. To keep my playing up, I have played weekly in Rutland Ensemble and Rutland Cello Ensemble since 1997. I am based in Leicestershire.

Instrument Hire, Sales and Repair is also available.
Instrument Hire is £80 for 4 months.

Private Tuition
I have taught all ages and abilities privately since 2009.

I teach a Cello Ensemble, members are my current pupils that perform in an informal Concert at a public venue once to twice a year. We perform a variety of repertoire, I arrange the music to suit the ability of my pupils, so all abilities and ages are welcome. This is an informal group, taught from home that is designed to build the confidence of the pupil and help to develop technique, whilst learning in a fun and relaxed atmosphere amongst other Cellists.

Assistant Teacher in Beginnerís cello programme
In 2006-2008 I worked as an assistant teacher in a beginnerís cello programme for primary aged children in Rutland.

I teach from home. I believe myself to be very conscientious and personable in my teaching approach. Lessons are tailored to the Pupil's needs and desired outcomes. Some of my current pupils work towards exams and some of my pupils are playing for pleasure and personal achievement. If a pupil does want to work towards an Exam, I have contacts with an examination centre and an excellent accompanying pianist.
I have had many pupils over the years who have achieved excellent results.
