Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Each student is different, and the teacher needs to approach each one in a special way.

Music is my passion and I like to teach others to communicate though it. In order to make the music the way we feel it, we need technique. Technique is our tool to express, like the words for a writer!
My teaching has it base in technique, but just as a tool, not as something obsessive to be mastered.

Anyone can learn an instrument, and I hope to help you in this journey!

Cello · In studio

Professor Elisa corrected the bow technique and solved an injury I had for years in the right arm.
Thanks to her I was able to play the concert of Haydn in C as soloist.
After having had the opportunity to be his student I have improved considerably and managed to expand my sonorous concept considerably.
She is very pedagogic and has a great patience to solve the personal problems that I had from a very empathetic and above all corporal.
Today I can say that to be about to leave the race for my injury I am competing prominently at the national level (Chile)

Elisa is wonderful! She has enormous amounts of energy that translate to her cello playing and teaching. She not only is a great teacher but also a very musical and technically capable cellist. As a college student she pushed me and also gave me the skills I needed to improve. Elisa is kind and thoughtful. She could beginners to advanced students with anything cello related.

I've know Elisa for seven years when we met at Yale School of Music. She is very passionate about teaching and all her students have come along way since they started taking lessons with her. She really knows how to adjust to every student and to bring the best out of them. Her commitment to music is unique and her sensitivity and musicianship makes her an outstanding cellist and musician. I recommend her tremendously.
