One-to-One Teaching

Online Lessons

I'm now available on Zoom and Skype for one-to-one teaching. These are video conferencing software that is available for you to participate in lessons.

Practical advice:

  • You need to sit central to your screen so I can see your bow and left hand/arm.
  • You need your device on a chair/surface the same height as your cello chair.
  • We both need your cello to show upwards from the bridge.
  • You may like to use headphones.
  • Don't sit with the light behind you.
  • I recommend using a wired internet connection with an ethernet cable, alternatively, if your using wireless, sit as close to your router as possible to maintain a strong and reliable signal.
  • You should set up at least 15 minutes before our lesson.

Lesson information:

  • Lessons are £40 for 1 hour or £80 for 2 hours.
  • Lessons are available weekdays during the day or evenings.
  • I teach cellists from around the UK and abroad, so if you would like a lesson, I can start at 8 am.
  • We can discuss on Zoom or Skype and make a plan. I have material (music and technique documents) – I can email as we go.
  • Payment for lessons is in advance only.
  • You'll receive an invoice confirming your lesson – payment can be made by bank transfer or online by card.
  • You'll receive a lesson invitation by email if you are using Zoom. You can then join by clicking the link or going to and entering in the lesson ID.

Send me a message with your details if you are interested in booking a one-to-one lesson.

Zoom Unsung Heroes

We will be playing a stunning anthem by Thomas Tomkins. If you don't know his music, then you will have a lovely surprise!

Although we can't all play together, there are ways that each of you, can play with me. The exciting thing is to be talking about the music, exploring & developing ideas as we go. Some of you are welcome to learn all of the parts if you want, to really get under the skin of the music. I'm keeping the group small so you all get attention without a rush.

If you want to be with us, register and I will send you your score and any other documents I think may help you.

Date: 27th June 2020, 6.00pm–8.00pm BST

Venue: Zoom
