Information about Alice
I am a cello and music theory teacher (and primary school music teacher) based in Royston, focusing on making one-to-one lessons fun as well as challenging for all ages and abilities.
I adapt my teaching style for each student. For young beginners I use Colourstrings and Kodaly based material. Lessons incorporate games, singing and fun ways to learn about music notation. For older beginners, I can arrange their favourite music to play. I am happy to teach pupils in pairs so that parents can split the cost. I prepare students for Music Medals, ABRSM exams, ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory and ABRSM aural tests.
If you have any questions, or if you are interested in cello or music theory lessons, please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you

Experience: I studied Music at Oxford University and gained my PGCE from Exeter University. I was awarded the Ted Wragg Award for Outstanding Teacher Trainee.
Starting to play the cello from age seven, I gained Grade 8 with distinction at fifteen. I played an active role in school music performing in Devon, London and touring to Boston, US. I was a member of the Devon County Youth Orchestra and Oxford University Orchestras.
My love of chamber music began at university, where I formed a string quartet. I currently play with the Hugo String Quartet in North London.
I gained Grade 8 on the piano and enjoy accompanying friends and family. I continue my own development in music education by attending Kodaly, Dalcroze and Orff courses on a regular basis.
I hold a current CRB certificate.

Very nice Tutor, Alice knew how to adapt to my skills and weakness, she adapted to my previous knowledge and was very helpful.
My daughter is thoroughly enjoying her lessons with Alice and has improved already after only a couple of lessons.
