Cello, Conducting, Piano & Singing Teacher in London
Email: [email protected]
Hi, my name is Robert! I am a conductor, singer, composer and teacher based in London. 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.
I can offer singing and conducting tuition at all standards, and piano and cello up to about grade 5.
