- Teaches students:
- Ages 3+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
- January 2016
Hello! My name is Amy. I am a senior at UMSL (University of Missouri-St. Louis), pursuing a degree in Music Education. I am passionate about both learning and teaching. I have been playing cello since 2004, and have studied cello with Kurt Baldwin since 2014.
I have been teaching private cello lessons since January 2016, working with students between the ages of 7 and 60+ years old.
In order to cultivate individual skill and musicality, I emphasize a strong, technical foundation built on scales and etudes (which eventually leads to playing the cool stuff, I promise!). Together in lessons, we will find creative ways to practice efficiently and effectively, so that every time you pick up your cello, you will improve your musicianship and love your sound.
I am confident that we will have a blast learning together!
Thank you for your time :)
In January 2016, I began teaching free private lessons to at-risk youth in the St. Louis area through Orchestrating Diversity.
In the summer of 2016, I taught Orchestrating Diversity's summer camp, JUMP (Junior Urban Music Program). During the camp, I taught class violin, cello, music literacy, singing/aural training, and music enrichment.

Immediate connection. My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson with Amy. Amy makes it fun & exciting - exactly what one needs for encouragement.
