Personal Description:

I am an experienced cello teacher who welcomes students of any age and ability. I am capable of teaching to a high technical and musical level and extremely passionate about music and teaching.
Having enjoyed playing the cello since the age of 4, I have had a huge amount of experience teaching as well as performing in solo, chamber and orchestral concerts. I have gained a BMus (Hons), MMus (distinction), and Postgraduate Advanced Diploma (distinction) degrees in cello performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where I have won multiple awards and scholarships, including the Barbirolli Memorial award for solo cello for 2015 and 2016 and the Edgar TP Comley certificate of excellence for 2017.

In 2018, I was accepted into the Britten Pears Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop, performing in Snape Maltings and was also given orchestral training from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Being a founding member of the Camilli String Quartet, formed in 2013, I have had a huge amount of experience in chamber music; performing recitals and concerts across the UK, as well as at weddings and corporate events.

Among other eminent musicians, I have performed in Masterclasses with well known Cellists such as Raphael Wallfisch, Martin Lohr; Principal cellist of the Berlin Philharmonic, Natalie Clein, Alexander Bailie, Lionel Handy, Daniel Veis, Leonid Gorokhov, Alexander Ivashkin, Leonid Elschenbroch and Julien Lloyd Webber.

Tutoring Experience:

Experience of : Teaching all levels and ages

Leading School workshops, including with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

I have long experience in cello teaching in primary schools and privately in London – Through the years, I have taught pupils of various ages and levels and have prepared students for grade exams both ABRSM and Trinity with 100% success.
I have also been a music assistant at a Primary School in London, which has given me a huge amount of experience working with children of all ages.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher who loves to pass on my passion for music to others and encourage my pupils to reach their potential. I understand how every pupil is different and I adapt my teaching to their age and ability. My lessons are always fun and I make sure my pupils come out of every lesson having learnt something new.
