Cello: Arianne Jacobs
Arianne is a music student of UWA. She plays cello and piano. Arianne has won many awards and prizes at eisteddfods and competitions in the last 7 years. These include the AMEB Trophy for the Most Outstanding Instrumentalists in the 2007 Fremantle eisteddfod (for piano trio). Arianne received a UWA exhibition program scholarship for cello in 2008 & 2009. She also received several music scholarship offers for high school studies. In 2011, Arianne was the winner of the Fremantle Eisteddfod AMEB Trophy ‘For the Most Outstanding Instrumentalist ‘(for solo instrument). Arianne was Australian Strings Association’s nominee for the 2011 WA Symphony Orchestra masterclass with international cello soloist Alban Gerhardt. Arianne was a member of two school choirs and two senior school orchestras in which she had been leading the cello sections for several years. She was auditioned to perform in the prestigious Performing Arts Perspectives 2013, as one of the highest standard performance students for the WACE 2012 exams.
She enjoys teaching the cello, music theory, and piano to both children and adults, and also runs an early childhood musicianship program for children aged 3-7.
I have been learning the cello with Arianne since November 2009 and am very pleased with my lessons and with the progress I have made. Arianne is a delightful young lady, mature beyond her years and an excellent teacher. Lessons are never boring, and under her watchful eye she makes sure the correct techniques are practiced and delivered. I look forward to each week’s lesson and even homework is kept interesting and challenging. I can thoroughly recommend Arianne as a great teacher who keeps things fun but who also gives her pupil a sense of achievement.

Arianne has been teaching my 11 year old daughter for a year now, starting at beginner level. Under Arianne’s guidance she has come such a long way in learning all aspects of playing the cello including music theory, maintaining the right techniques, and mastering some lovely pieces. Arianne’s bubbly personality combined with her own exceptional musical talent makes every lesson an enriching, relaxed and fun experience. Arianne is a wonderful role model for inspiring any young student to take up or continue playing the cello. I can thoroughly recommend her.
