- Who am I?

I am professional cellist looking for the chance to share my love of cello and music whether you're looking to do exams or just play for pleasure. I regularly perform classical, pop and jazz on the cello

I have 10 years private teaching experience and have also taught on several music courses, coaching individual cellists and orchestra cello sections.
I have been in to primary schools to perform to classes and in assembly and also worked with a GCSE music class with their string compositions.

- Where do you teach?

Currently I am only able to take on students who are able to come to my house in Northend, Warwickshire. Car parking is available here.

- When are you available?

Weekdays (daytime and evenings), weekends and also during school holidays.

Due to my freelance lifestyle, we may not be able to have lessons on the same day each week but I will always try to be as accommodating as possible.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?


I will happily teach any standard and any age above 6 years old.

No-one is ever too old to start!

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

These are not a necessity in my teaching and I will work alongside each pupil to find out which musical route suits them best. Although exams can be brilliant motivators, they aren't for everyone - and my main aim is to make sure all my pupils have fun.
I think concerts are fantastic and encourage my students to do as much performing as possible (even if just in their living room to their family!).

- Do you have a personal message for students?

It is never too late to start! I have lots of experiencing teaching complete beginners who are both adults and children.

I will also incorporate general Music Theory into our lessons alongside aural and ear training.
