Experienced cello teacher of 15 years! My lesson plan is simple : 1. we warm up with basic scales + finger exercises, 2. we focus on tone + proper technique, 3. we play solo, duets, and ensemble pieces (I prepare backing tracks to help w/ rhythm and timing... or play the parts myself). Can do pop, classical, hip-hop, etc. If the student is working on music for school orchestra, we can focus on that too. You will learn what you want to learn at your own pace.

My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals! My lessons consist of scales, duets, and solo repertoire. Each lesson is different depending on the student I am working with, but the core of my teach is based around these 3 areas.

$10 off each lesson during the holiday for new sign-ups. The regular listing price is $37 for 30 mins. Only one week left for new students. I love teaching strings. Cello was my first instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books. I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.

Ask me about classes and subscription pricing! Let's get you playing the music you've been hearing in your head. Each week, you'll get a personalized practice guide tailored to your goals. I love playing and teaching the cello, and I cant wait to share that passion with you. My teaching style is as slow as you need, as fast as you can go. Technique should always serve the music, so we'll focus on creating art and telling the story that you want to tell. I'll work with you to create a personalized study plan that is engaging, positive, and progress-oriented. Lessons are open to anyone, even if you don’t have a cello yet! I have worked with everyone from beginning students learning the basics of holding the bow to advanced players & colleagues looking for a discerning ear. I generally recommend 45 minutes for beginners, but there's no time limit; I love to dive into details and can work as long as you can! This year, I founded my teaching studio HelloCello, and I'm so excited to bring you along for the ride. Your subscription comes with group lessons, practice videos, collaborative projects, and performance opportunities so you can learn at your own pace and in your own way. As an added bonus, all new students will receive the 70-page Cello Handbook I recently published as part of my online cello series, "Hello Cello." Congratulations on taking an amazing first step towards learning cello, and I can't wait to meet you in our first lesson!

I am an emotive cellist with two decades experience. I have toured internationally performing my original works including London, Paris, and Berlin. As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students. Lessons with me are calm, meditative experiences where we use peaceful techniques to enter into the heart of music.
