My Mission

Lessons Tailored To You

Hello! My name is Monty and I've played the cello since the age of 6. After getting my grade 5, I ended up enrolling at Wells Cathedral School where I studied for 5 years as a specialist musician. In my time at Wells, I played with both the symphony orchestra and string ensembles. This gave me an insight into group practice, as well as expanding my repertoire. Upon leaving school, I spent several years travelling which showed me the diversity and difference areas of the world hold.
