I am an award-winning professional classical cellist and cello teacher, working in solo, chamber and orchestral contexts.

My extensive performance experience and love for music informs, and continually deepens, my teaching approach: developing musicality, a good ear, solid technique and a beautiful tone are central to playing music across many genres.

I have 23 years experience in teaching cello, strengthened by a Bachelor of Music, Masters in Creative Industries and a PhD.

Central to my teaching method is each student's motivation for playing music. I provide AMEB exam preparation and tailored learning programs for classical cello players of all ages and abilities.

For students interested in improvisation, I will show you the basics necessary to discover and develop your own voice through cello playing.

AMEB cello tuition is offered from Prep through to Licentiate diploma.

I offer AMEB theory lessons up to 6th Grade.

Please contact me if you would like more information or if you have any questions.
