In 2011, I returned from two years studying in Dallas, Texas, where I studied under world renowned soloist, Andres Diaz. This Followed an undergraduate at Leeds University studying with Anna Shuttleworth, who taught at the Royal College of Music for around 30 years, and a Masters at Trinity College of Music studying with Joely Koos, a highly respected London performer.
Having studied with these teachers and more, I feel I am in a great position to pass this knowledge on to my students. In addition, I have also developed my own ideas about playing the cello, while performing with Chamber Music ensembles, in Orchestras and in the West End.
In addition to my work with the Bromley Youth Music Trust with whom I am a licensed teacher, I teach at The Granville School, Walthamstow Hall School, the Langley Park School for Boys and Sevenoaks School. I also teach privately at my home.
I have previously taught at the secondary level at Dartford Grammar School and BETHS Grammar School, and at a primary level at Warren Road and Tubbenden Primary Schools in Orpington, and have also deputised at the Kent Music Academy as both a cello teacher and chamber music coach, and on "National Strings" residential courses.
I look to make the experience of learning the cello as much fun as possible, while also working to ensure all students play musically and with excellent technique.
