As a Suzuki cello teacher, and the only Suzuki double bass teacher in the UK, she has thriving teaching studios in both London and Cambridge, with pupils in books 1 to 10. Having been raised as a Suzuki pianist and cellist, she’s been attending Suzuki workshops her whole life and she regularly teaches at Cellofest.
As a freelance musician she performs with a variety of period orchestras, including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Concert, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and Academy of Ancient Music. After studying at the Royal Academy of Music, Pippa moved to New York to do a Masters in Historical Performance at The Juilliard School. She is now Professor of Baroque Double Bass at the Royal College of Music.


Now that her daughter has started Suzuki violin lessons, she’s learning about the third corner of the Suzuki triangle!
