I strive to treat each student equally no matter how advance the student are. My job as a teacher is to provide students a tool in life. Students will learn the way life works through the art of music. Should the students decide to pursue music or not in the future, I only hope that students will apply what they've learned in music to their everyday problem solving.

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player I can help you reach your goals for playing the cello. I can help you get started on the cello or prepare for your next audition. I teach the classical track and enjoy teaching popular music as well. My students stay with me because I have a gentle approach to pushing them to fulfill their potential as a musician.

I have the ability to arrange music from any genre for any instrument.

Tara taught both of my children when they were 8 years old. She helped my daughter get started on the viola and when ready moved her to a dedicated viola teacher. Tara taught my son, who is now 16 for 4.5 years. I am grateful to Tara for instilling the love of the cello and recognizing my son’s raw talent. She also teachers Music to elementary school
children and she has an incredible gift with keeping kids interested and engaged. She helped my figgidity young boy stay focused, often giving him a choice of what he wanted to play next for his level. My son is in 10 th grade and continues to play and wants to study Cello Performance and Music. Both my children play in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and in small chamber groups and have reached the Regions and All states level with school. She has an incredible gift with children and her love for playing is infectious. I highly recommend her. She has a wonderful reputation in the community.

I am a highly skilled player who is passionate about teaching people how to play an instrument that means so much to me. I believe that becoming a musician deeply enriches one’s life (as it has mine) and therefore I strive to teach what ever style a you may wish to learn. I am always learning more Bach and romantic Concertos, but I also play improvisatory styles in folk settings. I am currently in school studying to become a professional cellist under the instruction of a professor who learned from Paul Tortelier himself!

About Steven
I study cello classically at Marshall University under the direction of Şölen Dikener, a student of Paul Tortelier himself. Learning any string instrument can be a daunting task, but students can expect to see exciting progression within their playing week to week. I teach cello classically with a traditional pedagogical track, but I also love integrating other genres of music into the a students learning and playing by ear or chord progression. It is my belief that students progress most rapidly when they are given challenging technical tasks to accomplish, while pursuing the styles of music that they enjoy.
