Amanda Truelove has been teaching at the RCM since 1986. At first she was deputy teacher to both Joan Dickson and Anna Shuttleworth and in 1996 she was appointed professor.
She was herself a scholarship student of Joan Dickson at the RCM where she won all the top cello prizes and chamber music awards. She continued her studies with Johannes Goritzki in Dusseldorf during which time she gave many recitals, made concerto appearances and radio broadcasts in Germany, Switzerland and Sweden. Awards from the German Government, Countess of Munster Trust and the Ian Fleming Trust supported her.
Other major influences at this time include Anner Bylsma, Jacqueline du Pre and Bruno Guiranna. Amanda has established herself as a highly successful teacher and is in great demand. She taught for many years at the London University and at the Purcell School where her students are now finding their way as successful musicians.
She has worked and toured with most of London’s main groups including the London Symphony Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. With this, she has proven experience in an extremely wide range of repertoire and up to date knowledge of the profession as it is today. Amanda speaks fluent Swedish and is married with three children.
