Personal Description:

I am a professional orchestral player, graduated from the Royal Academy of Music-London. I have been working in an orchestra in Spain, the Real Filharmonia de Galicia for 20 years and have recently returned to the UK to accompany my children as they finish off their education here.
I studied here in Sheffield with Florence Hooton before going to London so am delighted to return.
I really enjoy teaching and bringing music to more people.

Tutoring Experience:

I have nearly 30 years teaching experience. I started whilst still at school as there was no cello teacher locally.
Whilst studying in London I worked for Hounslow Music Services as a peripatetic cello teacher and acheived several good ABRSM exam results.
On graduating I moved abroad and have continued to teach in music schools and privately. I have taught pupils of all ages and abilities, from 4 years old to adult, amateurs to professionals.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that anyone can learn to play an instrument, but they must enjoy it!
I want my classes to be instructive and fun. The pupil must want to practise and improve and if they are enjoying the class they are more motivated. Performances are also essential. The ABRSM exams are an important bench mark for pupils to acheive but concerts on a regular basis are also a necessity.
