Personal Message
Visiting professor at Royal College of Music Junior Department since 2015.
I m dedicated and skilled cello tutor with a great experience as a solo musician.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I have 1/4 cello available for trials (before you make decision to continue and rent your own).
Lessons for children and beginners are fun and inspiring to keep their concentration.

I do focus on individual needs of my pupils to keep a good progress from lesson to lesson by developing a strong technique.
We work on tone, musicality, memorisation skills, knowledge of theory and good attitude to practice. Also from the first lesson we concentrate on how to be independent and practice without teacher.

*We also are running concerts for young musicians in co-operation with RCM JD professors and their students.
