Personal Description:


I am a friendly, sensitive and enthusiastic musician who can offer cello and piano tuition from my home in Canford Heath and also online. I'm encouraging and adapt teaching styles to suit the pupil with an emphasis on learning being fun and boosting confidence where needed.

I offer Cello and Piano tuition - any age pupil and from beginner upwards. Perhaps you're a complete beginner, your child would like to learn or your instrument needs a good dust off! I often find adults can be a little nervous - there's absolutely no need to be! If you'd like to learn, pick up the phone - it's never too late to start or pick up where you left a few years ago!

If you'd like to learn just for fun do get in touch and I'm also happy to work with you to grades (this would still be fun!), it's entirely up to you so whatever your situation please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a trial lesson.

Tutoring Experience:

One-to-one and small group instrumental and music theory tuition with pupils aged 4 - 84.
One-to-one Academic tutoring with pupils aged 5 - 14.
Lead KS1 & 2 whole class music.
Considerable time working and volunteering in primary schools, working in particular with children with special educational needs.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm friendly, encouraging and adapt teaching styles/methods to the individual pupil.

I teach 30min lessons (£19) at my studio in Canford Heath, Poole during the week and have a current DBS. I generally teach during term time though am happy to arrange lessons throughout the school holidays too. I also offer lessons online.

**update May 2022: availability before 3.30pm and waiting list for lessons after 3.30pm**
