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.

Tre Amici String Trio performed at the 96th Anniversary of the Osborne Park Uniting Church. They are delightful young musicians, who charmed the congregation both with their appearnce and their talent. The choice of repertoire was perfectly suited to the occasion and their joy in performance was obvious. They were a delight.
