Andrew B. Chicago, IL

Andrew has taught a wide range of students from young (and adult) beginners to advanced university students. His own education and playing experience has taught him that good cello playing should not only sound great, but feel natural as well. Because of this, he stresses the physical elements of cello playing in connection with a strong technical foundation, as well as the development of each student's ear and individual sense of musicality.

He earned his bachelor's degree, summa cum laude, at Arizona State University, where he studied with Thomas Landschoot, and is now completing his final year at DePaul University with former assistant principal of the Chicago Symphony Stephen Balderston.

David S. Chicago, IL

I was not Suzuki Trained as a child. I respect the method and will use some of the books on occasion. However, I do not see the value in getting certified to teach Suzuki if I cannot relate to the student learning process. I use a variety of method books by Klengel, Schroder, and much more.

About David

Hello,
My name is David S. and I am 22 years old. Thank you for visiting my profile! I am originally from Aurora, IL but currently live in Chicago in the Buena Park area. I am a recent graduate of DePaul University where I received my Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. There I studied with Stephen Balderston, former assistant principal of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

I began my piano studies* in a Yamaha Piano studio at age five and continued private lessons for eight years. Then I shifted my attention to the cello, which I started in a public school when I was in fourth grade. I began my violin and viola studies in high school during a period I broke my wrist and couldn't hold my cello with a cast!

*I attribute my versatility as a string player to my many ...

About Caitlin

I am a life-long musician and active performer here in Chicago, IL. I've been playing music since age 5 and have variously studied piano, cello, and percussion.
