Cello Journey

This section is a selection of videos which I have compiled over recent years on the students which I have had the blessing to work with as part of their journey of music via the cello. They are by no means 'perfect' performances in any way nor are they meant to be. They are simply works of pure effort and passion in pursuit of learning and continuous improvements. 

These videos are organised by the year in which they are recorded.
