Please visit Katri Patel’s Blog here at Larsen Strings for an entertaining, at times poignant but always informative take on the life of a cello teacher in London.
Katri was born in Finland and has played with many orchestras both in Finland and in the UK including the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Britten Sinfonia.

‘…music affects us in so many ways. It creates lovely memories that stay with us, it improves our mood, helps with concentration and even affects our intelligence. In fact it is so good for us that it really should be prescribed by doctors!’
