Hi I'm Laura and I first started playing the cello aged 7. Previously I attended the Royal College of Music Junior Department and then received a scholarship to study for my bachelor degree at the Royal Academy of Music.
I have performed at most major UK concert halls as a member of the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Proms Youth Ensemble, the National Youth Orchestra and the National Childrens’ Orchestras. In 2019 I was also invited to play in the LacMus Festival Orchestra on Lake Como. I am also a passionate chamber musician and perform with my piano trio, Torridon Trio, around the UK most recently performing at the Wigmore Hall.
I have had experience in private teaching on a one to one basis with levels ranging from grades 1-6. I have prepared students for school music scholarship exams. I have also given chamber music coaching at a music course 'Cello Dynamo'. Furthermore I have participated in Outreach schemes where I have been involved leading workshops with small groups of school children. Outside of cello teaching, I have worked as a member of the social staff team for the National Children's Orchestras.
I am prepared to teach beginners to advanced grade 8 standard students from age 4 and up. I am happy to prepare students for ABRSM grade exams, but will accommodate to the wishes of students. I can include aural skills in lessons, such as rhythm exercises, singing and general music theory. The two main aspects that I feel are most important to focus on with students are musical creativity and technique on the instrument. Technique includes a large number of aspects in cello playing such as intonation, sound quality, comfort with the instrument and posture.
I am also happy to teach beginner piano students up to grade 3 standard, including aural skills and general music theory tuition.
