Cello and Piano lessons with experienced performer and teacher

Learning an instrument is meaningful for any aged student, whether wanting to progress seriously or to learn for enjoyment. I have all the skills to help you learn from beginner to advanced musician on cello, and for nurturing beginner to intermediate piano students. I have a Masters from the Royal Academy of Music on cello, with an LRAM instrumental teaching certificate, a bachelor Music degree from King's College London and an ABRSM performance diploma in piano. With over 15 years of experience teaching cello and piano in a range of settings from primary, secondary and prep schools, to music centres, private tuition and online, and having taught pupils from the ages of 5 to 65, I can find the strengths of a pupil, and improve any weaknesses, in technique, rhythm or intonation, and opening up the ability for expression and musicality.

Using ABRSM grades as milestones, I cover all aspects of developing musicianship, as well as establishing and improving technique on the instrument.
I am an experienced regularly performing professional cellist myself, and have many skills to support your learning and development as a musican, whatever your aims. I have a great rapport with my students, and love to see them progress and gain new skills and enjoyment as they learn.

About Me

I'm an experienced performer, playing in all kinds of settings from orchestras and film recordings, to studio recordings for bands, from cello quartet and solo cello classical and pop at weddings, to producing my own cello tracks to be used on radio on tv. With an academic music background from King's College London, as well as a Masters in performing from the Royal Academy of Music, my depth and breadth of both theoretical musical knowledge and performing experience is considerable. My aim is to impart as much of this as needed for each individual pupil to make the progress they are capable of and stretching them to reach their potential on their chosen instrument while keeping lessons enjoyable and fun, and an area of learning that pupils benefit from in many other ways.
I have taught cello and piano for over 15 years, in groups and individual lessons from complete beginner to advanced student (cello) and complete beginner to intermediate (piano), at places such as the Royal Academy of Music First String Experience, Blackheath Conservatoire, various primary and secondary schools in London, Chichester University, Mehli Mehta Music Foundation in India, and currently several prep and boarding schools in Sussex, as well as continuing to teach private one to one lessons outside of school.
I have taught complete beginner adults, returning adults, complete beginner children from the age of 6 and teens, and capable children and students. I have a great rapport with my pupils, and see the lessons as a process of development for the pupil that is far beyond learning to play the notes on the page. We will cover technique, reading rhythm and pitch, aural skills, background musical knowledge, and the ability to express ideas through music. Pupils become able to think for themselves and gain self-reliance and independence as musicians.

PIANO LESSONS: What about learning how to play the piano?
Piano, the instrument used by the romantics to make their most beautiful music, but also by the most experimental and modern composers to create their amazing music. Isn't it a great instrument to play? With more than 5 years of experience teaching in music schools and 8 years as a private piano teacher, I developed an efficient and "fun"-focusing way to teach how to play the instrument. Every student is different, so also the way to play and learn shall be different, which makes every single lesson special and rewarding. I also offer the possibility of teaching in groups: if you want to know more about this option. I hope I become the teacher you want and need!

Ilona
Result-oriented professional cello instructor with 11+ years of experience
Hi everyone! My name is Ilona, I am a professional cellist and cello teacher with Master’s Degree. My teaching experience is more than 11 years, with 3 years experience of online teaching. Online learning how to play cello is completely acceptable for all levels and ages from 8 years old. Either you are a Zero Beginner or you are preparing to pass entry exam to conservatory - I will explain you how to practice to become more effective on cello. My current students are from 8 till 51 years old, they are from different countries of the world. I always work for result, so from time to time our lessons could be longer then 1 hour just because we haven't finished the lesson's plan (without any extra pay). There are two main parts which you should know before starting to learn cello with me: when you play cello you use your body (arms, fingers) for creating sound and you use your soul and emotions for creating music. At the very beginning we will learn how to create the sound, which later you will use to show your emotions. If you do have any questions, please, don't hesitate to message me. Currently I'am teaching online only.
