Lore Burns

  • AMEB Cello Grade 8

My name is pronounced the same way as you would say "folk lore" and I am a non-binary multi-instrumentalist, actor, writer, composer and martial artist (in training).

Don't be scared of the non-binary part, it just means that I have never fit in either the "women" or "man" rigid gender boxes and therefore use they/them pronouns. For example, "Lore plays the cello, it is their favourite instrument and means a lot to them". It probably won't come up very often and I won't get upset if you make a mistake, as long as you try that means a lot to me! I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have, provided I have the time and energy. I have learned a lot myself just from coming to terms with my gender identity, which includes how to help people from marginalised backgrounds feel safe and welcome.

Whilst I primarily teach cello and this is my specialty, I am also very good at improvising and compose professionally and will happily teach these skills, along with piano, guitar and music theory up to the intermediate level I possess. I enjoy the interrelation between instruments and accompanying students on different instruments to help them get a sense of how they can work together with other musicians.

In general, whilst I do a lot of different things and am therefore not, say, a stricter AMEB focused teacher, I am a relatable and kind teacher with some different skills to offer to the learning experience.
