Teaching since:

A lot of my personal teaching philosophy is stated in the introduction. Nonetheless, here is a more detailed overview of myself: I have performed as a soloist with The Buffalo Philharmonic for a summer concert in 2014, played Principal and Section Cello in several regional orchestras in Buffalo, New York and I have studio recording experience for several rock and indie bands. I currently study with Alan Stepansky(Former Associate Principal Cellist of New York Philharmonic). I have studied with Natasha Farny(SUNY Fredonia), David Ying(Ying Quartet), Steven Doane and Alan Harris(Eastman School of Music), Astrid Schween(Juilliard Quartet) and Melissa Kraut(Cleveland Institute of Music) to name a few. I look forward to meeting you and working together!!

Cello · In studio

Alex was my teacher for 2 years. His passion for music and the cello are infectious. He pushed me when I needed to be pushed (even if I didn't think I did). He was patient and flexible with my questions. He taught me not just about proper form, but mindset; how to practice, how to prepare. He is a wonderful teacher.
