Private instruction is imperative for having a long, rewarding musical career whether as a hobby or profession. My biggest strength as a teacher is my ability to create a nurturing environment while still demanding a high standard of artistic excellence.  During  lessons, I focus on using our bodies with ease, communicating with the instrument, and enjoyment.  I consider music education to be greater than learning to play an instrument, and mentor the whole person through exploration of the cello and the classical music tradition.  For my younger students, I also emphasize parental involvement in practice and day-to-day musical life.


I will be interviewing potential new students in Spring/Summer of 2015.  Please contact me if interested.
