So, you want to fine-tune your playing, to get more focus, to feel more confident on your instrument? I can help!
Open to all repertoire.
Hi there - I'm Peter Morrison, an Australian cellist, present member of The Danish National Radio Orchestra and Australian World Orchestra, but also previous member and regular principal player of several major orchestras and ensembles in Australia. I am also a composer.
My over-riding passion is to pull the best creativity out of people's hidden drawers and into the open. With a solid grounding in technique from Janos Starker and many other greats of the cello world, I will give you the stability you wish for, whilst also aiming to get you to think out of the box and teach you the processes that will allow you to eventually solve issues for yourself. Happy to teach cellists as well as to musically focus any instrumentalist's recital or exam program. From cello to violin and even to tuba - from solo to chamber music to orchestral excerpts and improvisational playing. I'm ready to teach with you.
Peter is not only an incredibly skilled cellist but a patient and masterful teacher. Each lesson I walk away with new technique that I can incorporate into my practice. After returning to the cello after years of not working with an instructor, Peter has quickly brought me back up to speed. I look forward to my lessons each week with Peter and would full heartedly recommend Peter to any cellist looking for high-quality, student-centered instruction.
I find Peter's lessons musically very precise and detailed. I have learnt a lot just after a few lessons.
I am an adult beginner and started lessons with Peter about a month. Peter is a dedicated and highly experience teacher. Lessons with him are very insightful and fun. I feel comfortable and enjoy my lesson very much. After only one month of lessons, I got complements from others that my cello playing has improved significantly. I am very happy to have Peter as my mentor.
I've had cello lessons with Peter for several months now and I can say that he is an outstanding teacher. He manages to combine his expertise with a good sense of humour which makes his teaching style effective and fun at the same time. I am learning and enjoying a lot!
Although I am a violinist, not a cellist, I really wish to recommend Peter as a coach for audition repertoire, both orchestral excerpts and concertos. I met him just before my first big audition and he definitely helped a lot in the one lesson we had.
