Om Anna N.
I have a Bachelor of Music degree from King’s College London and have received high-class cello and singing tuition from the Royal Academy of Music in London as part of this.
I took Advanced Performance in Musical Theatre as part of my degree and prior to this received my Diploma in Musical Theatre Performance from the London College of Music in my final year of high school. As a native English speaker (with a Northern Irish accent), I also believe I am especially well-equipped to teach students the fundamentals of pronunciation, vocal placement and accent reduction for singing in English.
As a cellist, my previous repertoire includes the likes of Rachmaninoff , Beethoven and Schumann. I have played as part of orchestras, wedding quartets and received advanced grades in the instrument.
I have been teaching private music lessons for more than three years and have guided students through exams (with most achieving A+ grades) and general self-improvement. I have also taught acting as part of a respected drama school outside London for the past two years, equipping 10 – 18 years olds with the communication and performance skills necessary to succeed in the arts and achieve high grades in LAMDA exams.
I have experience teaching both online and in person and am happy to work with pupils to find a teaching regime that works best for them.
Lessons in singing
I teach singing to performers of all ages and abilities – from beginner to advanced levels. Singing tuition includes:
- Breathing and projection techniques
- Pronunciation and articulation
- Vocal placement and range work
- Acting through song and emotional communication
- Posture and physical stress management
- Sheet music reading (if desired)
- Dynamic interpretation
- Informed historical performance techniques
I have taught students to prepare for performance, for personal enjoyment and to help them improve their confidence. My pupils have ranged in age from six years to eighteen years.
Lessons in cello
I teach cello students of all ages from beginner to intermediate level (UK grade 6).
Lessons include instruction in:
- Practical technique
- Bow control
- Pitch and tone control
- Posture improvement
- Interpretation and performance through playing
- Basic/necessary music theory
- Reading music
- Sight reading
I have prepared many students for music certificate exams with great success and have also helped older players reignite their love for the instrument for personal satisfaction. My pupils have ranged in age from seven years to over twenty years.
Though I was classically trained, I encourage pupils to explore different performance styles and genres to find which resonates with them. I believe that students work best when they feel involved in the formulation of their learning and so I cater each lesson to the individual needs of the pupil, allowing their talents to flourish in a relaxed and supportive environment. As a result, I am comfortable teaching any genre that a pupil desires and adapt my tuition as required. I have special experience teaching musical theatre vocals and classical cello performance.
Every pupil is different, and thus every first lesson with me is individually tailored. We will spend some time getting to know one another and agree on a direction in which to go. We may play or sing some introductory pieces and get an understanding of where work is needed. If the pupil is young, I will happily speak directly with parents to review and plan the next few lessons.
All that beginners need is their instrument and a desire to learn! I will provide initial music but will advise students which books and music to purchase as we progress with lessons. I will spend my time getting to know your voice or the habits you may have formed as a cellist up until this point, then assess how to move forward in a fun and worthwhile manner!
