Natasha Trinkle is a freelance cellist and cello teacher living in Melbourne. Her interests include the use of cello in traditional and folk music genres, as well as composition and Australian improvised music. Natasha began learning piano at the age of five and cello at the age of nine. Cello became her main focus and in 2000 she completed a Bachelor of Music at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide. Following this she began exploring the role of cello in various contexts, in particular Scottish folk music, jazz, and improvised music. It was this passion for improvising that prompted Natasha to complete Honours in cello performance at Monash University in 2015. During this time, she also began experimenting with composition, and with support from staff at Monash, Natasha was able to integrate improvisation and composition into her Honours performance program. In November 2015, Natasha Trinkle won first prize for Devils at Dusk in the inaugural ANZCA composition competition at Monash University.
