My Mission

Relaxed and Informative Lessons

I have been teaching the Cello for many years and I take great pride in offering high quality lessons in a fun and relaxed environment. I think it is really important that as a student you feel comfortable in your learning environment to ensure you make the most progress possible. I have vast experience working with students from all walks of life so anyone is welcome to take lessons with me.

I understand that each student that takes lessons with me is unique as we all want and love different things about music. As such I will always make sure to adapt and tailor my teaching style to suit that individual person. Learning any new instrument or any new skill in general can sometimes be a little frustrating at times so I like to make sure the lessons are as engaging and fun as they can be.

My Lessons

Qualified and Professional Teacher

I’ve been teaching music for over 12 years now and I absolutely love what I do! Music is my passion and I to love share this with my students. I take great pride in watching them grow and seeing their progress and development each week in between the lessons. My ultimate goal for these lessons is for my students to enjoy making and playing their favorite music while developing their skills as a musician.

I am a flexible teacher who feels comfortable and confident playing in a wide range of styles and genres. I am always open to teaching my students whatever music they are the most passionate about, particularly if there is a specific musical style/artist or genre that they would like to explore. Together we can work our way through your most loved and favorite songs. Not only is this rewarding in itself but we will be helping you improve on your playing techniques as we go.

Prices:


£17 per 1/2 hour
£32 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

No matter whether you have never played a cello before, or if you have been playing for years already and just want to improve, all students are welcome to take lessons with me.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been teaching music for over the last 12 years now and have been playing the cello for even longer than that. I teach music both as a secondary school classroom music teacher as well as a private one to one tutor. I am fluent at playing and teaching the violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano which I currently have students on all of these instruments.

I teach both children and adults learners and I have been fortunate enough to have worked in numerous primary and secondary schools across the North West. I have taught students both in large groups and on a one to one basis. I like to offer lessons that cover a whole range of musical knowledge, so that not only do you improve as a practical cello player but we will also improve your overall understanding as a musician too.

Outside of teaching, I am primarily a performing cellist. I play cello in my own rock band 'The Mono LPs' and gig regularly (at least when we’re not in lockdown!). I have also played with other bands and singers and have performed in a rock festival in Norway as well as on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury which was an amazing experience. I have also been fortunate enough to star in an episode of Hollyoaks as part of a string quartet.

More About My Lessons

As well as providing regular lessons I also help and support students who wish to enter and sit their exams. I currently have a 100% success rate with my students for passing ABRSM music grade examinations up to either the Merit or Distinction level. I believe that having a performance examination to work towards can really motivate students to keep moving and progressing. I do however, fully understand that some students would rather not take examinations and this is perfectly fine, also.

I currently hold a PGCE and a BA Hons Degree in Music, Popular Music and Music Technology with a First Class Honours as well a grade 8 in Cello and many other music qualifications such as Grade 4 in Piano and a BTEC HND in music. I call upon these qualifications all the time in my lessons and I use these skills to ensure I am always providing the best quality cello lessons possible.

I loved my music lessons as a child growing up and through into adulthood. While I was studying music at university, I volunteered with the local In Harmony project, which provides free instrumental tuition in primary schools in deprived areas. This is where I found my enjoyment of teaching music and realised that I wanted to do more of it, so have been teaching full time ever since!

I am a mobile cello teacher meaning that I am happy to travel to you for the duration of the lessons. This means you can take all lessons from the comfort of your own home. No need to worry about traffic or finding the place. I find most students tend to learn best being in a familiar and comfortable environment.
