I have been teaching cello lessons students of all ages and abilities for over 10 years. I consider myself to be a traditional teacher incorporating several Suzuki Method principals, particularly emphasizing good technique, learning the value of effort, and using music as a tool to nurture soft skills that benefit non-musical aspects of school and/or life.

Through cello lessons I strive to help students reach the following goals:
1. Achieve the ability to make beautiful music and demonstrate a mastery of technique at every level.
2. Experience joy through playing music and a sense of success and accomplishment through hard work.
3. Develop valuable skills, traits, and habits that help the student excel in other areas beyond music lessons.

About Emily W.

A Northern California native, Emily received a Bachelor of Music in music management and cello performance from California State University, Sacramento where she studied cello with Andrew Luchansky. During her time in Sacramento, Emily freelanced, taught cello lessons, and worked with several arts organizations including the Sacramento Ballet, New Millennium Chamber Music Series, and the All Hallows Academy Orchestra. She also completed Suzuki Cello Book 1 teacher training with Pam Davenport at the Intermountain Suzuki String Institute in Draper, Utah.

In 2009 Emily moved to Hartford, Connecticut where she continued to teach cello and freelance. In 2010 she joined the staff of The Hartt School Community Division at the University of Hartford where she served as the Marketing and Communications Administrator for a community music and dance school serving over two thousand students from the region. In 2014 she moved to Chicago after accepting the position of Director of Admissions and Finance at the Western Springs School of Talent Education and the Naperville Suzuki School, one of the most highly regarded Suzuki programs in the nation. While living in Chicago, Emily continued performing with the Oak Park River Forest Symphony.

Emily moved to Great Falls, Montana in 2016 with her husband, bassoonist Dorian Antipa, when he was appointed principal bassoon for the Great Falls Symphony and the Chinook Winds Quintet. Emily served the Great Falls Symphony as Manager of Core Ensembles until 2019. She currently maintains a private teaching studio and performs as section cellist with the Great Falls Symphony and the Helena Symphony.

In her spare time Emily enjoys cooking, hiking, camping, playing ice hockey, skiing, rock climbing, knitting, and exploring Montana.
