I have played in a variety of musicals and various college orchestras and chamber groups. Because of my approach to music I don't consider classical my forte but I can still teach any student cellist a great amount about beginning to advanced playing in any style - including classical.
I am also comfortable playing a variety of styles on the cello, namely jazz.
I have been happily playing music for over half of my life and it has always been the light in my day. Now it is my hope to shed that same light onto you or your child. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience, even more importantly I love teaching and music with a passion.

Although I am a classical bassist, I understand cello technique very well. I have worked with many fine cellists, and have no problem preparing cello students for auditions or to learn how to play pop music.
My goal is to help you bring out your personal musical voice. I think learning an instrument is fun and rewarding, and I want to give you a positive experience where you can succeed and enjoy playing music. Many of my students have gone to study music in college- but I have the belief that everybody should experience making music. I'm committed to helping my students reach personal goals by creating a fun and friendly environment for learning. I have degrees in music performance and education from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, UCLA, and CSUN. My private teachers have been leading members of professional orchestras and top level studio freelancers.
Experienced cello teacher of 5 years! For beginners, my lesson plan is simple : 1. we start off with basic scales 2. we practice proper bow-technique and posture, and 3. we play sheet-music (classical compositions or songs chosen by the student). The time devoted to each portion of the lesson is totally adjustable / up to the student. In other words, you will learn what you want to learn at your own pace. Lessons can be done at my apartment, your place, or online.
