I am very passionate about music and oboe, so I can provide lots of important info about college auditions and prepping for an upcoming concert!

Hello !

I am a french cellist, master graduated in cello performance from Mcgill University and currently pursuing a chamber music diploma at San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
I am qualified, adaptable, and professional. I have been teaching for the past 10 years from beginners to intermediate, kids to elders.
You would need to have your own cello for lessons, many stores in SF rent cellos monthly.
Lessons can be in french or english.
Don't hesitate to contact me for more information !
I'm looking forward to meet you,

Chloé

I have experience teaching music theory and aural skills classes in both private and group settings. I have taught theory and aural skills at the Eastman School of Music, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Ithaca College, and the NYSSSA School of Orchestral Studies. I am also a published author in the Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy. I have experience teaching all levels of theory, from fundamentals to post-tonal, and am familiar with all of the major solmization systems (moveable-do, fixed-do, scale degrees, la-based minor, letter names, Takadimi). Music theory pedagogy is one of my greatest passions!

I had major performance anxiety surrounding tests and auditions. Emily was always very patient with me and knew the difference between my poor singing and when it was just my anxiety. She never made me feel bad about messing up and throughout the year I became so comfortable with her I only stuttered on really difficult sight singing. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a teacher that is not only great at teaching but also incredibly considerate.
Cameron
I had Emily as a TA for aural skills for 2 years and she worked with me both online and in person. Throughout my ear training, she was always supportive and patient with me as she helped me through all the material I struggled with. 10/10.
Eliza
Emily is an amazing teacher! She made our Aural Skills section a supportive environment for learning and coming out of our comfort zones as musicians. Aural Skills can be a daunting subject to learn, but Emily's patience and clarification skills made the class enriching and fun!

My 11 year old son has been taking guitar lessons from Grant for at least 6 months. We liked Grant's teaching style so much that we enrolled our 9 year old son for lessons as well. Grant keeps the lessons fun and interesting by choosing songs that they already enjoy to learn, while teaching fundamentals at the same time. He is patient when they may be having an "off" day, and he is extremely encouraging and positive in every single interaction. My boys think he's fun, and they've learned a lot from him.

"We switched instructors three years ago and we have been so pleased with the boys' progress, not only in their ability but also in their understanding of technique and musicality. Daniela has helped them to advance beyond merely playing correctly to playing with understanding, appreciation, expression, and emotion. She doesn't take her students one song at a time through a book, but she helps the kids select a piece they want to learn to master, and then they work until it is played with perfection."
