I am a professional, classically trained ‘Cello player available
to teach ‘Cello and general musicianship lessons.

All levels welcome!

Learn varied repertoire & gain a solid physical technique or find out more about harmony, rhythm and notation.

I am an experienced teacher of music to all ages and abilities, from primary age to students of all levels & adult learners.

I am happy to take you through Grade exams if required, but equally happy to spend time adapting lessons to your needs and introducing you to one of the most evocative instruments in the world!


I have been teaching music since 1996 where I gained a classical training with the ‘Cello, and took a second study in composition, i also am a trained music leader through Community Music LTD, and am trained in safe guarding, equal opportunities and adpating lessons and teaching styles to different learners.

I embrace as many disciplines, styles, genres and appraoches to playing music as I can, from Classical, Jazz, Improvisation, Folk, hip-hop, rock, pop, avant-garde, games and approaches to performance.
My aim as a teacher is for learners to find out what it means to be a ‘good musician’, which is as much about learning to listen, understand technique, first principles of 'Cello playing, and a practical-hands on understanding rhythm and harmony. I have experience teaching musicianship, singing improvisation, composition skills, and the 'Cello with people of all ages from nursery, all primary year groups, teenagers, and the elderly.


Performing Biog:
I experiment with approaches to playing the 'Cello using improvisation, composition and collaboration to explore sound and performance in both live and recorded settings, working with a range of groups and projects in the UK and Europe. And I perform and devise, create sound design, and co-run a visual theatre company 'The Ding Foundation'. I also work with many other artists in dance, theatre, storytelling, visual art and film, fulfilling roles such as sound designer, composer, performer, musician, facilitator and outside ears/eyes. I am an experienced music/arts leader working with individuals and in community and group settings with people who have diverse backgrounds, abilities and ages. Apart from the projects mentioned above, other musicians i have worked with include John Butcher, Roger Turner, Fred Frith, Lotte Anker, Ingrid Laubrock, Tony Buck, Simon Roth, Kay Grant, Ntshucks Bonga, Mandy Drummond, Orphy Robinson, Sylvia Hallett, Shabaka Hutchins, Suichi Chino, Atsuko Kamura, Alex Hawkins, Laura Jurd, Ansuman Biswas, Sarah-Gail brand, Maggie Nicols & Christian Marclay.
