I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do.

For the past 4 years I have been teaching using the Suzuki method, which stresses the important motto of "Every Child Can!"

Students can look forward to getting acquainted with the cello- from posture and properly handling the instrument, note-reading, and playing their first songs with the bow.

About Lisa C.
After playing the violin for over 20 years, Lisa was inspired to share the gift of music with others by her teacher, Susanna Sonnenberg. Lisa is a member of the American String Teacher’s Association, and has attended the 2017 ASTA National Conference. She currently performs with the Edgewood Symphony Orchestra. Lisa has played in recitals, the Chartiers Valley High School Orchestra, and was accepted to the 2006 PMEA District Orchestra. She has studied with Larry Weiss, Linda Andersen, and others. Lisa can’t remember a time before she learned how to play the violin; it has brought her great joy. Her favorite piece to play is the Bach Double Concerto in D Minor.

At 8 years old, Lisa fell in love with the violin. Throughout school, she studied with private teachers and played with the school orchestra. At home, her dogs were a great audie
nce.

Lisa went on to study history at the University of Pittsburgh, and later earned her law degree from Duquesne. She never forgot her violin, though, and continued to play in her spare time.

Music adds beauty to the world, and finally, after years of keeping the violin to herself, Lisa decided to share her playing with others. Lisa teaches traditional, classical method. The method books she uses include: Essential Elements for Strings, Samuel Applebaum, and All for Strings, among others. She supplements the technical exercises with repertoire from the Suzuki series. Lisa enjoys playing all types of music, in addition to classical, and teaches these songs, as well. Additional music includes pop artists like Taylor Swift, classic rock, electronic music like Lindsey Stirling, celtic, folk, and just about any other type of music you can think of. As a teacher, Lisa strives to be positive and encouraging. She believes that music should be fun, so her main goal is to make sure her students are having a good time!

I have experience teaching in a variety of settings level students. I am currently teaching students as a private teacher and I helped some of my students’ audition for San Diego youth symphony and school orchestra assignments. I also have experience not only teaching young musicians in a small group system also performing and playing as a cellist of chamber ensembles and orchestra.
As a music teacher, it is my goal that I want to give back the rich knowledge that I have received during my studies. I want to use my education and knowledge gained from SDSU to help students obtain a proper and valuable education. I desire to see young musicians refine and expand their passions and talents in music and use them to touch the lives of others.

My musical background is extremely diverse, so virtually anything you want to get out of our lessons, I'll be able to give you. I have studied both the classical and jazz methods extensively with many influential teachers that are still active in the music scene. This experience has taught me how to apply each method, depending on the situation, to produce the best results possible. I have comprehensive knowledge of the standard classical and jazz repertoire, and can easily develop an effective plan of study for any student, at any level. I also write a fair amount of music, so depending on the student, that could become a large focus of our lessons. Most importantly though, I know how to keep a lesson interesting and how to engage a student of any age and skill level in a way that will motivate them to work on their craft consistently and effectively. Really excited to work with anyone interested in getting something out of music!

About Philip
I am a cellist, bassist, and composer living in Miami right now studying at the Frost School of Music. I have been heavily involved in both the jazz and classical traditions for the past six years, and I have gleaned a lot of wisdom that I hope to impart on the next generation. I try to be the most compassionate teacher possible, and I pride myself as someone who deeply understands the learning process.
I have spent the last fifteen years building both my classical and jazz repertoire, so I have a great idea of how to build a plan of study for any student of any level. Despite my experience in these two well-established music traditions, I am a massive proponent of listening to and experiencing as many types of music as possible. Once we work through technique, we could get into more contemporary music, or virtually anything that has art
istic merit. Learning a musical instrument is incredibly beneficial to the development of the psyche and brain, so I will do everything in my power to keep my students engaged and enjoying the process. I really look forward to working with any and all of you!
