Personal Description:

I am a freelancing cellist and teacher, having previously studied at the Royal Academy of Music, where I recently completed my Master of Arts (Distinction) after having gained a 1st-class Bachelor of Music Honours degree from the same institution. I am also a Chamber Music Fellow this year at the Academy, where I coach undergraduate students in Chamber Music.
Born and grown-up in Sweden, surrounded by 6 cello playing sisters, I have had music in my life for as long as I remember.
I work in London and Hertfordshire as a chamber and orchestral musician, private teacher and as a soloist. Currently I have very limited availability but there are still a couple of slots to fill for the 2017/18 academic year, so please do get in touch and we may have a conversation about a suitable time.

If you require help finding an instrument, I am more than happy to assist.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a private tutor for over three years time, having tutored in Music theory & Composition and Cello. Currently I work for the charity Play for Progress as a cello teacher, as well as another music school in London.
I can help prepare for Entrance auditions and ABRSM & GCSE exams, and have also been cello teacher at a course for children aged 8-13. I am proud to say that all my students that have taken exams have passed with Merit or higher. In Sweden I also worked as a professional Nanny/Baby-sitter in Sweden for a company, and have great experience of children of all ages.
I am also in the process of obtaining my LRAM diploma (Licensiate of the Royal Academy of Music).

Tutoring Approach:

I try to tutor after the philosophy that there is no such thing as "things you can't do" - you just haven't been taught it the right way!
If you are looking for a highly dedicated teacher who wants to help you all the way to success - I am the right tutor for you!
