What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching for 8 years and previously taught the cello from 2009-2016 at Southbank International School in Hampstead. I have been teaching privately since 2009, both individual and group lessons, and have also taught for many years at Bryanston International Summer School, Temple Dinsley Summer School, Sforzando Summer Course and Suzuki Hub Halloween Course. As well as cello, I also teach improvisation groups and conduct children's orchestras and ensembles.

Where and with whom did you train?
I was brought up in the Suzuki Method, and learnt with Christine Livingstone as a child and teenager. My final dissertation at university was titled 'Children are Seedlings: Personhood and Learning in the Suzuki Method of Teaching. I studied cello pedagogy under Annette Costanzi, Penny Heath and Tessa Oakley.
Tell me about some of your current students.
One of my first students was accepted into Junior Guildhall as a teenager. Many of my students have gained music scholarships to senior school, the most recent of which won the music scholarship to St Paul's Girls School in London.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I believe that every child can develop talent - music is a language that can be learnt by everyone!
