I love teaching and sharing my enthusiasm about cello and music with others. My goal as a teacher is to inspire genuine excitement about the subject and to make the student want to learn more on his own.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I can give online tutorials through Skype or Google hangouts. Make sure your internet connection is fast enough for video streaming. We can test the speed in the free consultation lesson.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach Cello, digital music production and recording in Logic Pro or Garageband (no Pro Tools) and Sibelius. All ages and levels are welcome.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I'm currently studying in the second year of my bachelor's degree at the Royal Academy of Music. I have grade 8 music certificate from the Madeira Conservatory (Portugal).
What kind of experience do you have?
I started playing the cello at the age of 5, it wasn't always easy so I know how challenging an instrument can be in the beginning. At 12 gave my first solo performance with an orchestra and since then I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I was principal cello of the Portuguese Conservatories Youth Orchestra, and have played with many youth and professional orchestras in Portugal, Italy and the UK. I'm studying in London with a Santander Award entrance scholarship form the Royal Academy of Music.
Feel free to check my website for some of my recordings and more information.
How much do you charge?
I can give a free consultation lesson.
Normal rates are £30 for 1 hour plus travel expenses (if needed).
For young children I gan give 30 min lessons for £20 plus travel expenses (if needed).
Discounts available for group lessons.
Where do you teach?
I'm based in Canada Water and would preferably teach at students' homes. No traveling expenses would be required within the Canada Water, Marylebone, Warwick Avenue, Kilburn, Paddington, St John's Wood and central London area, though I'm happy to teach anywhere in London, just contact me for more details.
When are you available?
Lessons are scheduled by mutual availability between student (and their parents) and myself.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
All ages and levels are welcome. Teaching method can be as relaxed or as demanding as you want.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have not needed a CRB disclosure certificate so far, but I can get one if necessary.
Where and with whom did you train?
I'm currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music with Guy Johnston and I've had masterclasses and lessons with Colin Carr, David Finckel, Norma Fisher, Skampa Quartet, Tamas Merei and others.
