My name is Alex and I have been playing the cello for 16 years and teaching students for 5 years. I received my bachelors degree in cello performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music, a masters from the Juilliard School, and I'm working towards a graduate diploma here in Boston at the New England Conservatory. I had initial teacher training in the Suzuki Method, teaching beginners and young learners as well as observing 100 hours of lessons with renowned pedagogue Dr. Melissa Kraut. I worked as her teaching assistant for two years at the Cleveland Institute of Music and Meadowmount School of Music a top summer music festival for young musicians in upstate New York. I believe learning is one of the joys of life and that is why I find teaching so much fun. I recently moved to Boston and I'm looking to build my studio!
