I enjoy teaching and aim to motivate and encourage students, developing the skills to enable them to enjoy playing their instrument. I prepare students for ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall exams - or no exams if preferred! There is the opportunity to play in the summer pupils' concert and to attend a professional concert. I have many years of experience, teaching both piano and cello in schools/colleges and privately. I also work as a freelance cellist in the North West.
I studied cello and piano at the Guildhall School of Music and went on to work as a freelance cellist in London for a variety of orchestras including English Touring Opera, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Field. I also taught piano and cello in a several private schools. I moved to the North West in 2000 continuing to freelance with Northern Chamber Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and Opera North
