I have been teaching cello privately for over 40 years! I teach and have taught beginners of all ages up to university students. I enjoy teaching young children and have a full studio of adult learners. My specialty is the Suzuki method, but I teach using a wide variety of materials. I have a Master's degree in Cello Performance, and have an active playing career of orchestra, chamber music, and solo performance. I run my own chamber music business.

Working with Patty has been an incredible experience. She’s truly nurtured my love for music and been so patient and so uplifting. I’m very thankful to have found her as an instructor!
SangAe
I have been her student over two and a half years now. Over the past 4 months she converted to online lessons due to the COVID pandemic. At the beginning I was not sure I could get the same quality or experience from the cello lesson without seeing her in person. However, her teaching via FaceTime was seamless and I was able to follow her teaching without any problems. She is the best instructor ever in-person and online for teaching the cello!
Emma
Mrs. Patty is an excellent and patient teacher who I have been taking lessons from for 8 years! She is great with younger players (like me, when I started in 4th grade) and with adults!

As with any instrument or art, you have to start somewhere and put work into. There are no shortcuts. However, a good instructor can quickly recognize what you wish to learn, zone in on those areas, and most importantly allow you the desire to keep play more. This type of guidance is the “shortcut”. For myself, I have 18+ years playing electric/acoustic guitar I have also attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA playing with other musicians and learning from the best instructors.

Beginner level: we have to start with positioning of you fret and pick hand. You can change a bit of this up later. To start, I might hear you play something: one note, a melody, or a riff just to see where you’re at. Starting from scratch? That’s perfectly fine.

We will work on two aspects: working towards playing single note melodies and strumming/learning basic chords. I would encourage learning the latter as pretty much all contemporary songs can be accompanied by rhythm guitar. Changing ...

In my teaching, I strive to help students find the balance between technique and emotion/expression. Each week, I'll assign something to help you work on your technique and/or theory knowledge, and then we'll work on a song you're interested in learning. I cater my curriculum to each student based on their ability level and interests.

Phil is very friendly and pleasant. He has a quaint in-home studio that is filled with music books, instruments and art. He really seems to know a lot about music and was very comfortable teaching me. I was very apprehensive before I went to my first lesson but, I quickly began having fun and am looking forward to future lessons with him.
