Teaching

Julia's interest in teaching started while she herself was still a student at the Royal College of Music. Now, over ten years later, she runs a busy teaching studio in South West London, and has earned a reputation as an outstandingly gifted and committed teacher and chamber-music coach. 
 

Despite her busy concert schedule, Julia maintains a class of talented private students from the age of 6 onwards, several of whom hold music scholarships at major independent schools or are currently preparing to enter a specialist music school or conservatoire. Julia's aim is to continuously nurture her students' love for music whilst equipping them with the highest level of technique from the very first lesson. Drawing on her own training rooted in the Russian and German schools of cello playing, she takes a keen interest in finding the right approach for each individual student, with particular attention to differences in physiology that may require varying technical approaches. Julia's exceptional dedication and enthusiasm show in the excellent results her pupils achieve. 


Whilst the vast majority of her students study with her on a permanent basis, Julia also offers one-off consultations and shorter courses of lessons for the following:

- intensive preparation for music college/secondary school music scholarship auditions
- resolving specific technical problems
- repertoire coaching 
- general assessment

As well as teaching privately, Julia is also a visiting teacher at Davies Laing Dick College and Oliver House Preparatory School Clapham.
