As well as recording and producing, I am also an expert (ex-Royal College of Music) cellist, and always delighted to add cello to tracks I am recording or mixing.

An online cello session recording service is available, so if you want cello on your already recorded tracks, please get in touch for a quote, whether it’s a single line or a full 12 part arrangement you have in mind.

I can also provide full strings with violinist/violist colleagues or samples or a mix of both.

I also offer private cello tuition: my first four pupils were entered for ABRSM exams in 2013, and the remarkable results are:

1. Grade 1 – Distinction (131)
2. Grade 5 – Distinction (135)
3. Grade 5 – Distinction (135)
4. Grade 1 – Merit (120)

History

​I started learning the cello at school at the age of 7.  The first exam I took a couple of years later was Grade 4 and I achieved a Distinction. I went on to study with John Sharp of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Stefan Popov. I was offered places at both Royal Academy and Royal College of Music and opted for the latter, but the commuting and waning interest in classical music led me to abandon studies for a job in a recording studio.

But, some years later my interest was rekindled, and I now play in an orchestra, a string quartet and own a Yamaha electric cello for live rock work. I had a consultation lesson with Julian Lloyd Webber and even recorded him at Metropolis Studios…

Hear some of my cello work…

In 2016 I arranged and recorded multiple cello parts for Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi…
