Cello

Dale Culliford is a cellist, chamber musician, cello teacher, and Alexander teacher. She has worked with many of Britain’s top orchestras, including the Orchestra of the Royal Opera at Covent Garden, the Philharmonia and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. In 1997 Dale joined the Hallé Orchestra where she is sub-principal cellist. Alongside this work she teaches cello privately with a range of students, from youngsters through to adults. Dale also works with many graduates and students in music colleges who are preparing for auditions or performances. Her training as an Alexander teacher has been invaluable in forming her ethos as a cello teacher and her approach to life, work and cello playing. Her love of playing chamber music led her to create two popular concert series in the beautiful Peak District at Spring Bank Arts, New Mills and for Bakewell Town Hall. Dale has a Bachelors’ degree in English and French Literature with Music history from her home-town University in Wellington, New Zealand. She loves walking in the Derbyshire hills, gardening and exploring many pathways to self-discovery such as yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices.
