I'm a recent grad of University of Michigan, where I received both my bachelors and masters degrees in cello performance with Anthony Elliott and Richard Aaron, respectively. I've spent years honing my craft and I'm excited to share with you everything I've learned!
My teaching style is a blend of all the teaching philosophies that I've encountered over the years. I emphasize good technique and a holistic approach to cello playing, as I believe those two are the foundation to building musicality. However, I believe the ultimate goal is to simply instill a love for music into my students and to encourage them to have fun. I look forward to making music with you soon!

About Cecelia S.

I'm a professional orchestra cellist, chamber musician, and a Suzuki certified teacher. I graduated from the University of Michigan, where I earned both my Bachelor and Master of Music with Anthony Elliott and Richard Aaron, respectively. I have played with the Grand Rapids Ballet, the Jackson Symphony, and the Ann Arbor Symphony. As an educator, I have taught at various El-Sistema inspired programs, such as the Paterson Music Project and the Michigan Artist Citizen program. Currently, I am a cellist in various chamber groups and am teaching students of a variety of ages, skill, and commitment levels.

With my style of teaching, students can expect to improve each week. I believe it's the teacher's job to alleviate practice frustration, which is why I pack each lesson with practice techniques, exercises, and smart practice tips. I am also a firm believer in teaching students how to play cello without any tension. After having suffered a few injuries of my own, I turned to the Alexander Technique and trained for a year, which helped immensely with the pain. Now, I take those same concepts and infuse them into my lessons, with the goal of making cello playing easy, fun, and pain-free.

I look forward to meeting you and to start cello-ing together soon!
