Hi! I'm Jay Émme
Professional Cellist, Certified Transformational Life Coach
Dream Grabber, Goal Smasher
Hi! I'm a professional cellist, life coach, and online cheerleader! ;) I have an MA (distinction) in Cello Music Performance, and a certified diploma in tranformational life coaching.
My passion for music, and desire to help and encourage other people was present from a very young age, and I have always had some sort of creative pathway throughout my entire life.
I've played the cello for nearly 40 years, and have been a self-employed entrepreneur for around 15 years, having created and run incredibly successful businesses in that time frame (including being a wedding photographer, booking weddings in the UK, US, Europe, Thailand, and more!). I am now currently living my dream as a solo wedding and session cellist, and cello coach and tutor, whilst also livestreaming cello, ukulele, and games on Twitch. I wanted to be a professional cellist since the age of 6; after years of people telling me I'd never be able to do it (but never really explaining why...) I finally found a way to make it happen. And living out my dreams is absolutely amazing.
Whilst completing my Masters degree in the middle of the pandemic, I became increasingly aware that one of my children might have ADHD. The day right before my final degree project, I myself was diagnosed with ADHD (extreme combined type C) and have since also been diagnosed as autistic. As strange as it sounds, I pride myself on being able to relate as closely as possible to the experiences of my clients, so that I may be more empathetic to their circumstances and needs.
Therefore, I'm able to demonstrate an amazingly wide range of skills and understanding, being able to think so differently from neurotypical cellists and coaches.
