I am an imaginative and friendly teacher and an experienced and versatile cellist who has performed internationally with leading ensembles for 25 years. Having studied with some great 'maestri' I have many 'pearls of wisdom' to pass on!
I believe in applying 'first principles' (beauty of sound, balance and ease of movement, accurate pitch, strong rhythm, how to practise!) as well as phrasing and interpretive insights at every level, however simple or complex the repertoire.
I aim to demystify technical problems, to help you develop strong musical instincts and most of all to have fun and enjoy the process!
