Personal Message
I am a 'cellist with many years of teaching and performing experience. I have taught for music services, schools - both independent and mainstream - and privately. Students that I teach range from absolute beginners to diploma candidates.

I specialise in teaching the 'cello, but I also teach Music Theory and coach chamber music groups especially string quartets.

I have a BA (Hons) 2.1 from the Birmingham Conservatoire, the ABSM Diplomas in teaching, performance and recital and the Elementary and Advanced Kodaly Musicianship Diplomas.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been teaching since 1992.
How much do you charge?
I charge £32.00 per hour. Consultation lessons are charged at £8.00.00. A minimum charge of £5.00 is added for travel to students homes.
Where do you teach?
I mainly teach at home in Cradley Heath West Midlands, but can, on occasion, travel up to 10 miles to teach at the home of pupils. This can include traveling to Dudley, Wolverhampton, Stourbridge and Halesowen.
When are you available?
I normally teach during school term time, after school and on most days including week ends. Additional lessons can be bought to cover half term and any school holidays.
