Personal Description:

'Simona moved from Italy in 2009 to pursue a career in music here in UK. She lived in London and Leeds, where she graduated from Leeds College of Music in Classical Cello and where from she also developed a particular interest for contemporary music, under the tuition of cellist Alfia Nakipbekova (ex pupil of Mstislav Rostropovich at Moscow Conservatoire). Once in College Simona received a Scholarship from ‘Thwaites Fine Stringed Instruments’, a ‘Wolfson Music Award’ for the purchase of a new instrument and an Experience Fund for a ‘Mindfulness for Performers’’ course at Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Simona’s current and past experiences include delivering Community Music workshops, one-to-one and group cello tuition to students of different ages and abilities, orchestral performances with WOW Orchestra (Royal Festival Hall), Collaborative Orchestra and with the cross-over ensemble New Music Collective, who recently collaborated with singer-songwriter Marc Almond (BBC Radio Leeds).'

Tutoring Approach:

I do believe in everyone's power to achieve their goals and I do really emphasise my teaching work to creatively inspire all students. My lessons are generally fitting each individual's age, level and need in order to personalise students' learning journeys in the best possible way.
