Jenny graduated from Victoria University with a Bachelor of Music in cello performance. She has given cello and chamber music recitals throughout New Zealand and England, and has broadcast for Radio New Zealand. She was a member of the Isis Trio in Oxford (UK), formed the Canterbury Ensemble in 1996 and has been the cellist in Tresoli Piano Trio since 2000 and Tresoli String Trio in 2021. Jenny has a special interest in adult education. She has LRSM and is a member of the Institute of Registered Music Teachers of New Zealand.
All of my students are adults, some are beginners, others have played the cello before and decided to take it up again after a break of a few years or even decades. Even if you have no previous musical experience and start learning later in life, with regular lessons, you can expect to be able to play cello in a group in your first year of learning.
I encourage my students to join cello ensembles, chambermusic groups and orchestras and support them to make it stress-free and an enjoyable experience. My students play a wide range of music, most of which I provide. It is not necessary to own your own instrument as I usually have cellos available for hire or I can assist you in purchasing an instrument. I offer a range of lesson options:
Studio lessons in Christchurch: individual lessons in Cashmere – weekly, fortnightly or occasional (30, 45 or 60 minutes)
On-line lessons: With flexible lesson times, duration and frequency – for students who live remotely or prefer to learn from home.
Residential Block Course in Akaroa: Studio lessons in Akaroa and accommodation (if required) at the Akaroa Coastal Studio.
