Personal Description:

I am a Masters student at the Royal College of Music, having graduated from the University of York with first class honours in music. I play the cello and Baroque cello, while I can also do some piano accompaniments. I am a passionate cello teacher and enjoy working with students of all levels. I particularly enjoy chamber music, performing regularly with the Howell String Quartet, and I have also been the principal cellist in the National Youth Chamber Orchestra of Great Britain and the Nonesuch Orchestra. I am based in London.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught the cello for three years. Additionally, I have three months' experience working with the students of St Thomas Choir School in New York, where I led daily individual practice sessions, particularly for cello and piano.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that music tuition requires patience, determination and communication in order to ensure the most satisfying experience for teacher and student alike. It is important that the student is provided with the drive to improve and practise, but it is also essential that they do not feel stressed by the pressure imparted upon them by the teacher. If there is a collaborative spirit throughout the learning process, it is generally much more enjoyable for everyone, and therefore progress is more likely to made during and between lessons.
