My Lessons

Learn To Play The Cello

I began playing the Cello in my teens, since then I have learned a variety of techniques and ways to make learning fast and enjoyable. As a multi-instrumentalist, I understand how hard it is to learn a new instrument and know the techniques to make learning easier.

I pride myself on being a friendly, focussed and professional teacher. I like to make my lessons fun and engaging for both children and adult students whilst making progress on the Cello.


£30 per hour

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

My Experience as a Teacher

I started learning piano when I was about 3 years old and studied at Junior Guildhall until the age of 8. I then sang as a chorister in the choir of New College, Oxford, where I also began to play the cello. During my teens, I continued to sing and compose, and also played in many ensembles including the Thames Vale Youth Orchestra.

At the University of Manchester, I began to study conducting, eventually directing the University chamber choir, Ad Solem, as well as working with other choral ensembles, and the University's baroque and symphony orchestras. During this time I also sang in the Genesis Sixteen choral program, which offered intensive training for elite young choral singers led by The Sixteen.

I have been teaching singing, piano, cello and conducting privately ever since graduating, as well as directing several choirs and ensembles. I have also completed a conducting scholarship with the Leeds Festival Chorus, and a fellowship program with the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, for whom I am regularly employed as a singer, conductor and coach.

More About My Lessons

I can offer coaching in singing, Piano, Conducting and specialise in teaching the Cello. I have worked with many different musicians and students of different ages and can adapt my teaching to suit the preferred learning methods of each student.

Together we can create a progress plan tailored to your individual goals and learning needs. I feel that students learn best when through playing the music they love, so I always teach with a student focussed approach.

I am a qualified teacher, having graduated from the University of Manchester with a MusB first class degree, and achieving a DipABRSM in Singing Performance, an ABRSM Grade 8 in Piano and an ABRSM Grade 8 in Cello.
