I teach from my North London Music Studio, face to face as well as using online platforms for remote teaching such as Skype and Zoom. My teaching locations offer a variety of options – Home visits, Garden Lessons , Forest Outdoor Music School, Schools, Community Centres and Universities. I have over 20 years of experience and dedication teaching children from early years through to adults both cello and piano. Some learners play for the fun and social aspect of playing an instrument where others make music part of their life path. I enjoy helping pupils of all ages find the right approach and individual targets and for those wanting to pursue exams I carefully prepare each student from initial to grade 8 and beyond using ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall exam boards. My pupils enjoy taking part in termly concerts, music aptitude tests leading to music places at desirable senior schools such as Latymer, Ashmole Academy The Purcell School and Haberdashers Aske’s to name a few. Some have gone on to study music at university and music college making music their profession too. If you would like to learn or find a new teaching approach specialising in technique performance techniques and the joy of music with a highly experienced professional please be in touch via the contact form and I would love to hear from you.
August 2020 : Marianne is a wonderful music teacher! She tutored my daughter in piano at a time when she was becoming bored with learning the piano with her previous teacher. Marianne made the piano lessons fun and introduced my daughter to some newer and more challenging music which really helped to encourage her enjoyment of learning to play the piano. I would highly recommend Marianne for her calm and patient manner and inspiration as a music teacher! Lucy
August 2020: Inspirational cello teacher. Marianne has taught cello to my daughter from 5 years old and my daughter has just taken her grade 8 at 13 – that says it all! Marianne is a dedicated and inspiring teacher . She works tirelessly to get the best out of her pupils and has high standards that really motivated my daughter to excel. She is an intuitive teacher and respects the individuality of all her pupils. I particularly like the way she speaks to her pupils and gauges from them what they should do . It helps the pupil to take responsibility and commit to her. Marianne brings her vast experience to her lessons and the concerts she holds. She is an enriching teacher and her determination to get the very best out of her pupils shines in every lesson. She is a truly gifted cellist and teacher. Viji
