Ariella has been playing music since the age of 5. Although originally focused on classical piano and percussion studies, cello has always been Ariella’s true passion; mellow, warm and deeply expressive.
She has a BA Hons degree in Theatre and Performance (2008, University of Cape Town), with distinction in Drama and First Prize for English Acting.
Ariella has performed with numerous ensembles and several orchestras, and as session musician, she has recorded for well-known producers, projects and artists including Good Luck, Jeremy Loops, Hot Water, Stelth Ulvang, Alice Phoebe Lou, and Markus Wormstorm.
Other work: voice-over artist for radio, television and film; music educator (cello and piano)
