Erin is in my opinion the best qualified cello teacher on this website. I have reviewed many other teachers and I have found her background and teaching methods the best. She is very patient and has a natural love for music and the cello.

Ahmere B. Pittsburgh, PA

I have been teaching cello for 4 years. My goal not only is to help students play more fluidly, but to help increase their sound production. I notice that in most public schools, the students aren't given much attention that they probably would like to help them excel. I would like to help push the boundary little by little. I use different teaching methods including Suzuki, scales, etudes, popular rep, and many other exercises.
