Hello !

I am a french cellist, master graduated in cello performance from Mcgill University and currently pursuing a chamber music diploma at San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
I am qualified, adaptable, and professional. I have been teaching for the past 10 years from beginners to intermediate, kids to elders.
You would need to have your own cello for lessons, many stores in SF rent cellos monthly.
Lessons can be in french or english.
Don't hesitate to contact me for more information !
I'm looking forward to meet you,


About chloe M.

Chloé is a cellist, educator and chamber musician based in San Francisco, CA. She splits her time performing regularly between the US and France.

Chloé is a founding member of Duo Érable, a cello and guitar duo with guitarist Pauline Gauthey. Duo Érable has a mission of expanding the limits of traditional classical repertoire and reaching communities large and small in the Bay Area. As a collaborative musician, Chloé had the opportunity to perform with, and be mentored by renowned musicians such as Emmanuelle Bertrand, Brian Manker, Raphaël Pidoux and Philippe Muller.

Passionate about education, Chloé is an active teacher in the Bay Area and is currently building her private studio. As a dedicated orchestral musician, she is currently a section cellist for the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra.

Chloé is also the recipient of grants and awards from l’Association Française du Violoncelle, Lions Club International, the Concours du Royaume and a beneficiary of a cello loaned by the organization Talents & Violoncelles and made by luthier Patrick Robin.

Born in France, her musical career started at the Saint-Etienne and then Lyon conservatories, with Marianne Gaiffe, Pascal Jemain, and Augustin Lefebvre. Chloé holds a B.M. and an M.M. from the McGill Schulich School of Music in Montreal where she graduated with an “Outstanding Achievement in Cello” under the mentorship of Matt Haimovitz and Brian Manker. During her time at McGill, she was a finalist in the McGill Concerto Competition, principal cellist of the McGill Symphony Orchestra and the recipient of the Mcgill Lloyd Carr-Harris scholarship. Chloé is currently pursuing an Artist Certificate in Chamber Music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, as one of the three Osher Foundation Scholars.
