Primary Curriculum, and Instrumental - Cello

"I am deeply passionate about spreading the joy and power of music to all my pupils. I aim to inspire and nurture pupils’ natural curiosity. 

I began learning the Cello with the South Berkshire music centre, which led to me studying a BA in Music at Southampton university and then moving onto teaching music, completing my secondary Music PGCE at Sussex University. 

Over the last 20 years I have been teaching Cello lessons and curriculum music lessons in a range of secondary, primary and nursery schools, within Brighton and Hove, Sussex, and Surrey. I have extensive experience directing a variety of extracurricular groups and workshops, from choirs to string ensembles. I encourage all pupils to participate in performances and I have been lucky to lead school ensemble performances to Glyndebourne and The Brighton centre.  

During Cello lessons I work with the interests of each individual pupil and tailor my teaching to suit their learning style and motivations.  

I gain immense joy teaching whole class curriculum music lessons across EYFS, KS1 and KS2. I love teaching whole class performances where all pupils embrace the satisfaction of playing together.  

I enjoy walking, swimming, and practicing yoga. "
