I teach beginner cello primarily using the Suzuki books, but supplement with other materials when needed. My students work on scales and rhythm constantly to improve their tone and musicality as well as technique. I teach classical, religious, fiddle, and more. I also teach group ensembles, trios, quartets, and I work with students on their school orchestral and audition pieces.

Playing Cello is challenging and the enjoyment is extreme. That's why many people are ready to go through this tough way in hope of being able to master this magic instrument. I have played Cello for 20 years and I cannot imagine to live without this instrument. In this course I'll try to help you to go through an academic way of playing and ease the learning of the instrument. I'll use different books in this course. We'll play scales, arpeggios and lots of small pieces out of different resources. You may be able to learn many instruments on your own, but Cello is absolutely not one of them.
I believe that music is rooted in all human beings and cultures in a reach and vast variety of forms. Music unifies and engages thinking and feeling in a direct and immediate way. Music influences individuals simultaneously on different levels of consciousness and form an important device for learning, recreation, arranging of conscious and unconscious impressions and at the same time for characterizing and conveying ideas and thoughts. This as a point of departure characterizes my teaching philosophy, which strives to create a climate in which my students can experience continuous musical, intellectual, and emotional growth.
As a music instructor and musicologist I demonstrate the characteristics of professional and passionate for everything related to my teaching. I am ...

I teach cello from beginning to lower stage of intermediate level. I make it fun and enjoyable to learn songs and play them with high level of expression, musicality and strong vibrato. In order to achieve those goals, I work with you patiently to play scales, arpeggios, etudes and songs from different sources, among them Suzuki books.
I am a violinist and composer. I have trained more than 400 students in more than twenty five years of teaching.

I received my undergraduate training in music from Pomona College and my graduate training from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I have studied with Gaiana Mndoian, a pupil of Mstislav Rostropovich, and with Mark Kosower, a pupil of Janos Starker. In addition, I hold a Certificate of Completion from the Waldorf Institute of Southern California.
In teaching, I work to combine the instrumental technique gleaned from my musical training with Steiner’s insights about music and about working with children. Both my musical and Waldorf studies have emphasized to me the innate power, significance and benefit of sound, or tone, itself.
The cello can be soothing to a child for exactly this reason—it has a deep, comforting voice. In addition, learning to play an instrument ...
