My aim as a teacher is to support every student in his or her own dream. Whether it is playing in an orchestra, with friends, to learn how to make a beautiful sound or to learn to play your fovourite piece.... It's up to you!
During my lessons I often use pieces for 2 cello's. It's more fun to play together. And you can do it right from the beginning! All age groups are welcome. It's never too late to start playing the cello!
I have recently moved back to England. My cello career started 36 years ago, when- at the age of 5- I had my first cello lesson in London. Later I lived in Switzerland and in Holland where I did my Bachelor's and Master's degree at the conservatory in Amsterdam. That's also when I started giving cello lessons.
