Hi! My teaching is inspired by my classical training, while incorporating work experiences in improvisation, jazz, and pop. I hope to help students engage with music and equip them with tools to be uniquely creative and expressive.

About Caleb Y.

Caleb is passionate about music education and working with students of all ages and levels. He has been invited as a guest to lead improvisation workshops, including for undergraduate and graduate level cello performance students at UCLA. His teaching methods are inspired by his classical training and professional experiences with improvisation, jazz, and other commercial styles.

He has coached classical chamber ensembles and youth orchestra sectionals, and is prepared to help students musically and technically approach important solo, chamber, and orchestral literature.

In addition to a classical education, he hopes to help his students engage with music and equip them with tools to be uniquely creative and expressive. Whether they want to play at church or in a band, Caleb can help them become comfortable and confident playing music off the page.

He recently became a certified O’Connor Method teacher, and has been on the teaching faculty of the O'Connor Method String Camp. He has taught at the Virtual O'Connor Method String Camp, and will teach string improvisation at Ces’t Bon Chamber Music Academy in the Summer of 2021.

I am 12 years old and have been playing cello for 6 years. Caleb was my instructor at the Mark O'Connor string camp. The week before our lesson, he recorded an accompaniment for a piece we would be working on, and it was great to get a head start and to be able to play with him. We worked on bluegrass practicing techniques and improvising with blues scales. It was some super cool music and thanks to Caleb, my playing is improving!

Being my very first cello instructor, Caleb not only taught me how to play, but gave me a desire. Usually, the first experience determines the outcome of what happens, for example, if you never enjoy an instrument, it is inevitable that you would drop it quite soon. However, Caleb found me real enthusiasm and motivation. Even though I am no longer his student, I always look forward to hearing any news about him, from a simple hello to him posting a new video of his performances. Without someone like him, I probably would have had given up cello after my first year. He is the most enjoyable and helpful instructor so far.
