Personal Message
Hi! My name is Talulah, and I am a cellist originally hailing from Sydney, Australia.
I freelance with orchestras around the UK, and lead a busy schedule of this along with teaching in London.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the cello, am willing to tutor in chamber music, and can help students prepare for ABRSM exams.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I graduated from the RNCM with a Bachelor of Music (Hons) and obtained First Class Honours.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught people of various different ages and standards, children from the ages of 5, and adult beginners over 40.
I partook in the RLPO ‘In Harmony’ Scheme, working with some school students in Liverpool.
I also took a module at RNCM working and shadowing at RNCM Young Strings.
How much do you charge?
I charge £50.00/hr normally, however for beginners around grade 1/2 I charge £40/hr.
These rates are inclusive of travel :)
Where do you teach?
I teach at my students’ homes. I am willing to travel as far as Zone 4 within London.
When are you available?
I am usually free all day Sunday, and on Mondays, however being a freelance musician my schedule changes. We can work out a time each week to suit both of us, and if it has to change, I’ll always be able to find a time for you.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Any age from 5 and older, and any level up to grade 8 ABRSM.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
ABRSM
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
No, however I have had one previously.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I am available for Skype tutoring, however I would prefer face-to-face as I have found it to be much more beneficial.
Where and with whom did you train?
I studied under Georg Pedersen and Susan Blake at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music High School. I then studied under Julian Smiles for 9 months at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, before moving to Manchester to commence my BMus(hons) under the tutelage of renowned teacher Hannah Roberts. Currently I study privately with Hannah Roberts and Mats Lidström.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently I have none, but I taught many when I was in Sydney!
Do you have a personal message for students?
The cello is a fun and marvellous instrument, and is enjoyable at any age! You should definitely give it a try.
I like to make my teaching as fun and engaging as possible! :)
