Personal Description:

Hello! I am a cellist, pianist and music writer, a Countess of Munster Trust award holder and recent graduate of the Royal College of Music. At college I studied with renowned soloist Raphael Wallfisch and have since become a freelance teacher, writer and orchestral musician.

My biography:

Hattie has given solo recitals at the London Charterhouse, Lichfield Festival, The Town Church in St Peter Port, Guernsey, Emmanuel URC in Cambridge, St Olaves Hart St, St Peter’s Church Canterbury and Manchester Cathedral. She has also performed in masterclasses with eminent professors, such as Torleif Thedeen, Johannes Goritzki, Hannah Roberts and Guy Johnston.

Hattie has performed as a concerto soloist with orchestras, most recently performing Bloch’s ‘From Jewish Life’ with the Hereford Youth Orchestra and the Rococo Variations with the Bridgnorth Sinfonia. She has also sat as principal cello in the Royal College of Music Philharmonic Orchestra and toured Russia and the UK with the Britten Shostakovich Festival Orchestra in 2019.

Hattie is the cellist in the award-winning Odora Piano Trio. The trio were semi-finalists in the 2020 St Martin’s Chamber Competition at St Martin in-the-Fields and have achieved numerable successes in national competitions. The trio have toured across the UK, to Scotland, Wales and rural areas of England, as well as prestigious London venues. They have attended the Wye Valley Chamber Music Festival and received tuition from the Doric, Elias and Chillingirian string quartets, as well as renowned musicians Raphael Wallfisch, Andrew West and Richard Lester. The trio have an interest in promoting the music of 20th Century British composers and have most recently uncovered the piano trio of the late organist of Gloucester Cathedral, and close friend of Edward Elgar, Herbert Sumsion.

Hattie is committed to raising awareness for the prevalence of mental health issues among musicians. She is establishing herself as a writer and journalist, recently contributing to publications such as Classical Music Magazine, The Meridian and Larsen Strings blog. Hattie also hosts a podcast, Things Musicians Don’t Talk About, along with fellow advocate Rebecca Toal. Speaking with industry professionals, the podcast hopes to shed light and spread awareness for the many elements of the classical music world that still feel stigmatised. Hattie is training for her Level 2 in Counselling Skills and hopes to combine being a classical cellist with work in the mental health and journalism sectors.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience teaching a range of ages from 8-adult, combining private teaching, performance coaching and work in schools. I have taken students through ABRSM grades with 100% pass rate, but am happy to work casually and more 'for fun', should that be the experience you are after!

I am an experienced classical performer, but also enjoy teaching a more contemporary and popular style of cello and piano. I have arranged pieces by the Beatles, Joni Mitchell and have worked as a session musician for artists such as Tom Rosenthal.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in combining my wealth of experience within the specialist music education system with my dedication to helping people realise their musical goals, however big or small. I am passionate about music's capability to heal and focus, and incorporate elements of the Alexander Technique and other more alternative and holistic methods to ensure an integrative and student-focussed approach. I am also pretty laid back and happy to follow your lead with what you’d like to learn!
Having myself experienced the more negative elements of the competitive musical world, my teaching focusses on empowering students to take risks, make mistakes and show up, no matter how they feel or how 'well' their playing goes.
When teaching young beginners, I love to incorporate elements of musical play and am dedicated to creating accessible and fun lessons and resources.
