Information About Joe - Cambridge teacher - (17 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Joe:
Joe studied cello, piano and composition at the Royal College of Music as a Tsukanov scholar and recipient of the Wolfson Music Award. During this time he won several competitions, including the Rotary Cambridgeshire Young Musician of the Year, the Cambridge Competitive Music Festival and the Cambridgeshire Young Composer of the Year. He was lucky enough to study with teachers such as Hannah Roberts, Guy Johnston, Alexander Boyarsky, Yoko Ono, Marie-Noelle Kendall and Robert Saxton, as well as participating in masterclasses with Natalie Clein, Yo-Yo Ma and Mark-Anthony Turnage.
Joe went on to study music at Oxford University, where he was awarded an academic scholarship and the Fitzgerald Prize, graduating with a Double First. He has performed in a wide range of venues, from Royal Albert Hall and St Paul's Cathedral to Blenheim Palace and Corpus Christi Dining Hall. His compositions have been performed by groups such as the Ligeti Quartet and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
I have taught cello, piano and music theory in Cambridge since 2012. My pupils range from casual beginners to children who went on to study at the Royal College of Music Junior Department. Having studied with some of the foremost teachers in the UK, I have a wealth of knowledge and advice to pass on.
I adapt my teaching style to suit different students. I am experienced in preparing my students for ABRSM exams, with many achieving merits or distinctions. However, I am also happy to accommodate those seeking a more casual approach. I believe students learn best through lessons which are engaging, interesting and fun, and through playing pieces which they enjoy.

I found them really useful and felt like I made good progress even after one.
Look forward to doing more lessons in future.
His love of cello playing and knowledge of the instrument shows clearly in his lessons.
