Cello Teacher

Rachel took up the cello at age seven. Having developed her playing under the tutors of Hertfordshire Music Service and winning the Peter Lambourne Youth Bursary Prize for music in North Hertfordshire, she went on to study for her undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music, under Gillian Thoday. Here she took a variety of opportunities to perform abroad with RNCM Symphony Orchestra, as well as closer to home in the Manchester International Festival. Rachel studied for her postgraduate degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, under Ursula Smith. As a soloist, she has been selected for masterclasses with Ralph Kirshbaum, Victoria Simonsen and Alexander Baillie.


Now juggling a busy freelance career at various concerts, events and performances across the country, Rachel is also a keen cello tutor, previously holding teaching posts at music schools in both Manchester and London. She regularly gives music workshops with young people, with a particular interest in the Early Years sector.
