Mrs Nickie Clarke

Visiting Music Teacher

Time at Airthrie: 01/09/2016 (4 years ago)
Qualifications: ARCM, Cert Ed
Specialist Subjects: Music - Piano and Cello

My musical background is quite varied. Initially I played the viola with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. However, my first love was the cello so I switched at the age of 15 and attained my ARCM as a cellist before going to London University to read English. I missed music so much that I decided to go to the Royal Academy of Music with piano as a second study.

I am a qualified class teacher and have taught in many schools in London, Nottinghamshire and Gloucestershire including Airthrie. I am delighted to be back at Airthrie where my four children attended as pupils many years ago now!

I perform regularly as a cello player in the area and enjoy accompanying my cello pupils on the piano.
