About Georgia M
Georgia, a young British-Italian cellist, has a master's in Cello Performance at the Royal Academy of Music. She is passionate about working and playing with others, playing chamber music and also with both Italian and British orchestras. Since she finished her bachelor's degree in Italy, Georgia has found a passion in teaching music to students of all ages and levels. She finds teaching fun and creative, and likes to find exciting new approaches depending on each individual she works with. It is a great satisfaction for Georgia to follow the progress of her students under her guidance, but teaching is also a huge stimulus for her development as an artist. She is currently in the process of completing her teaching diploma (LRAM) at the Royal Academy of Music.
Teaching in Cello
Georgia teaches beginners to advanced students from age 4 and up. Georgia has mostly prepared students for ABRSM grade exams, but will accommodate the needs and wishes of her students. She will always include aural skills in her lessons, such as rhythm exercises, singing and general music theory. The two main aspects that she works on with her students are musical creativity and technique on the instrument. Technique includes a large amount of aspects in cello playing such as intonation, sound quality, comfort with the instrument and posture.
Teaching in Piano
Georgia teaches piano up to grade 4 level. She has a lot of experience preparing her pupils for ABRSM grade exams and so far her students have obtained excellent results from their exams. She is very happy to accommodate the wishes of her students, whether they are looking to play classical music or other genres. When teaching piano technique, Georgia works a lot on the comfort of the hands which enables agility and dexterity on the keyboard. Posture is also fundamental for piano playing
Georgia specialises in classical music, but is also experienced in playing and teaching other genres of music, such as light pop and easy jazz.
Georgia likes to start her first lesson with a student by having a chat about any musical experience the student might already have and by asking how much they know about the instrument. If the student is a beginner then she will introduce the instrument to them, and play a short piece to give an idea of the potential of the instrument. Depending on how long the lesson is, she might then start covering the initial steps of getting familiar with the instrument, such as posture and general hand positioning.
Each student will need their own instrument eventually, but it is not necessary to have one for the first lesson. If the student wants to be introduced to the instrument before deciding whether to choose it that is absolutely fine. The first lesson is very much about getting to know the instrument very generally and just getting a feel for the sound and posture.
