I teach all levels, I prepare for the ABRSM (Grade 1-8) if required.
I am Suzuki - trained and can teach your child the Suzuki method.

I also teach students who want to become professional.
( I have been teaching students at the Royal Academy for Music, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as well as students at the University in Valladolid/Spain. I gave one-to-one lessons to the so called "Future-First" students, who won the student scheme of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and was teaching the students of the 'InterSchool Orchestras New York').

I welcome people, who are just in for the fun too!

Please don't be put off if you are over a certain age. Music is there for everyone and I happily teach people of all ages.


When it comes to teaching, accomplished classical musicians fall into two categories: those who love it and those who hate it. I fall into the first category.

My approach to teaching is analogous to embarking on a journey; not only for the student, regardless of what age or stage he or she might be at, but also for myself. There are few things more rewarding than helping developing cellists discover areas of expression within themselves that, with a bit of hard work and determination, they can gradually learn to access.

I was taught by William Pleeth who helped to transform cello-teaching in the 1970s from a relentless battle with endless scales and studies into a physical art-form. The philosophy behind his teaching, first and foremost, was to help players discover and release inner techniques that allowed the imaginative player within to emerge without physical restriction. I try as much as possible to continue in this tradition and to embark on a journey with my students in this spirit.

For those of you who don't know, William Pleeth was one of Jacqueline du Pre's earliest and most formative teachers. She remained publicly indebted to his teaching methods until the end of her career.
