Seylan Baxter

Scottish Folk Cellist, Actress and Folk SInger

Hello and welcome! The site is divided into two sections: actress and musician. You'll find a CV, videos etc. in each.

Please visit my Patreon page for teaching videos:


Students include absolute beginners to advanced students. I specialise in folk music and improvisation but also teach classical music to around grade 5 standard. I love teaching adults, specially adult beginners and those returning to cello after a prolonged absence. Rates as per MU guidelines (currently £31/hour)


I can also give private lessons by Skype. Please contact me for more information.


Scottish Cello Workshops

I run workshops approximately in the west end of Glasgow teaching folk cello to Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced students. Each workshop costs £25 and should be booked in advanced. They usually take place on a Sunday afternoon. Please email me for more information.


Residential Courses

Please contact me for further information. The first Scottish Cello Workshops residential course was held at Cove Park in the Rosyth Peninsula in April 2016 and the second was held in Balnaboth House in Glen Prosen, Angus, in late March 2017. Email for information on future residential weekends.
