Clara Teniswood

Cello Music Teacher

About

I teach cello to students of all ages. Whatever a student's reason for learning the cello, I focus on building a solid technique and understanding of music theory and musicianship. The only prerequisite for lessons is an eagerness and commitment to regular practice - you will not progress if the only time you hold your cello is at lessons! I teach students individually (one-on-one) so that I can meet their unique needs. I also believe ensemble playing and performance experience is very worthwhile and lots of fun. So I help students find other musicians to form ensembles, encourage membership of appropriate orchestras, and provide performance opportunities throughout the year including studio concerts, festivals and exams. In addition, I also hold cello ensemble afternoons for adult (and late teen) students to come together and work on ensemble repertoire with like-minded people. You are never too old to learn the cello! However, one may be too young! I generally teach students from age 8, however this really depends on the student. Some students are ready to learn cello at a younger age than this. If you have a very young child who is eager to learn the cello, please contact me to discuss this possibility. I also teach music theory and musicianship based on the AMEB syllabus for grades 1-5. The completion of these earlier grades is especially encouraged for those completing later AMEB instrumental exams which require theory/musicianship as a prerequisite for obtaining a certificate.
