Online Cello & Piano Teacher
Email: [email protected]
I teach cello, piano, music theory and composition to any age, for any style of music. I teach online via Skype, Zoom, Facetime or Whatsapp. I hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and have over 15 years’ experience teaching both privately and in London schools through institutions such as the Guildhall School of Music and Hackney, Southwark and Waltham Forest Music Services.
I also teach online via tutorial platforms. I have prepared many students for ABRSM and Trinity graded exams up to Grade 8+, foundation and undergraduate programmes in cello, piano and music theory with a good record of success. I have also taught beginner violin and GCSE and AS/A Level Music.
I am classically trained at Masters level in cello and piano, theory and composition, having studied at the University of Athens and Goldsmiths College, University of London. I have also received external training from ABRSM London Conferences, the Learning Trust, NSPCC and others.
Alongside teaching, I am a performer and composer, specialising in experimental, improvisational and collaborative/multi-media projects. I also play traditional Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern music.
I offer a low-cost trial lesson to my students (£10) so that we can get to know each other and agree on what we’d like to work towards together. I offer 30, 45 and 60-minute lessons (£25 /hr).
My teaching often involves a degree of improvisation and music theory, as well as repertoire, as I believe that these are an important part of learning music. My aim as a teacher is to instil a love for music to my students.
Ultimately, I want to help them become independent learners by showing them how to think critically and how to break down any challenge into achievable components.

Viki is a excellent cello teacher. She is calm and patient. My son really enjoys her lesson and he is making great progress!
Viki was wonderful with my daughter. Great teaching manner, friendly, calm and patient – I can highly recommend her.
Viki is a very good piano teacher who helped me with a personal challenge to learn several tunes from the 90s on the keyboard. Having never played the piano before, Viki simplified the music in a way that kept the character of the songs but made it easier for me to learn. I highly recommend her.
Viki has guided me through the beginning stages. Always with patience and practical focus on technique to avoid bad habits.. She is friendly, methodical and has a professional approach to each lesson. She is also flexible in arranging suitable time for lessons and I am enjoying my lessons as an Adult learner. I am extremely happy with my tutoring so far.
Fantastic first lesson for my daughter .. we can’t wait for the next one!
