Piano, Cello and Grade 5 Theory Lessons for beginners

Whether they are learning the piano or cello for the first time, my students will not only learn the correct techniques to get them going on their instrument, they will also learn general musicianship skills such as listening, sight-reading, aural skills, note-reading and how to perform well and in a confident manner.

I teach using the ABRSM syllabus but can tailor lessons round my students needs and what they want to learn, for example, popular music. I specialize in teaching both beginner adults and children, adult learners are especially welcome.

My overall goal is to make learning an instrument fun and engaging, and for my students to capture the passion of music as well the enjoyment of and benefits of music.

Would be great if you had your own keyboard/piano/cello for online video lessons and lessons where I will travel to you.

About Me

My friends and family sometimes joke that I eat, sleep and breathe music but I definitely think that's true! I come from a very musical family and we all play multiple instruments and sing as well! I started learning the cello when I was 9 years old and taught myself the piano when I was 15 too! My Dad and Grandad introduced me to the music of Beethoven, Sibelius and Stravinsky (just to name a few!) and my love of classical music grew from there! I also wrote my own music and songs from an early age (I can still remember the first tune I wrote!) and that helped me develop into the composer I am today.

I have fond memories of my own cello lessons starting from primary school, all the way up to university; it was during these lessons that the passions for playing music was instilled into me and that is what I want to share with my own students and inspire them to play music!

I am always of the opinion that it is never too late to learn a musical instrument and anyone can be involved in making music, regardless of skill level!

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.
