Although I tailor much of my teaching method to the individual needs of my students, certain principles are a constant in all of my cello lessons regardless of the student. These include promoting tension-free movement and posture using elements of Alexander Technique; and promoting strong aural skills along with a solid understanding of the underlying music theory. My goal for all of my students is to help them become well-rounded musicians with an appreciation that extends beyond the joy of being a cellist. I am happy to enter my students for exams if, and only if they want to.
I offer weekly cello lessons as well as intensive sessions for exam, audition or performance preparation; learning effective practising skills; help with improvisation skills; and writing cello parts for non-classical settings. Because requirements for such lessons vary depending on the circumstances, fees will be worked out on an individual basis. Contact me to discuss your requirements in detail.
