Personal Description:

I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher who nurtures confidence in my students. By setting music tailored to suit individual goals, I encourage students to find enjoyment in their playing and foster musical continuity and improvement. My current teaching positions include SWS Music School in London, schools teaching and a wide range of private pupils. I am a music graduate of the University of Manchester, after which I went on to do post-graduate training at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Tutoring Experience:

It’s never too late to start learning to play an instrument - my current pupils range in age from 5 years old to 50!

Tutoring Approach:

I try to generate a passion for playing in students by finding music to suit them and their particular goals, to motivate them to continue and improve.For younger students, learning is approached in a fun and engaging way. Alongside technical grounding on the instrument itself, a variety of musical games and activities are included in the lessons. I am more than happy to prepare students for ABRSM exams and see these as useful targets for those who are interested in taking them. As a member of the European String Teachers Association, I am committed to continually enhancing my pedagogy through new techniques and skills.

For younger students, learning is always approached in a fun and engaging way, with a variety of musical games being included in the lesson, alongside teaching the technical grounding for the cello itself. I am more than happy to prepare pupils for ABRSM exams and have considerable experience in this area.
