It is my foremost belief as a teacher that my students are truly capable of anything they set their mind to. I teach with positive reinforcement and never judgement to create a warm and comfortable environment that fosters and nurtures potential! I see teaching as more than teaching a person to learn the cello, but as an opportunity to accompany students on their journey towards embracing who they are, creating meaningful art, and connecting to the world through music.

No matter the age or prior experience of the student, you can expect a heavy focus on establishing a firm foundation of cello technique. Without this foundation, the student can only progress so much. With the foundation set and solid, the possibilities are endless! I teach tension-free cello playing. There should never be pain or discomfort anywhere in the body which is why I have such a large focus on establishing proper technique.

Ultimately, it takes courage to put effort towards learning an instrument and I will always be the student’s biggest encourager!

About Emma R.

I have been teaching and performing cello for the last 10 years. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ back in 2012 and loved the town so much that I decided to stick around! I am a member of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, a professional Suzuki method teacher, and a strings arranger and recording artist. It is a true to joy to teach minds of all ages how to play this instrument.

My two passions as a teacher are injury prevention and creating a positive learning environment. My cello studio is a safe and encouraging space. I will never say that the student played something “wrong”. I will instead guide them to try a new way. It takes courage to put effort towards learning an instrument and I will always be the student’s encourager!

We love Miss Emma! My son took cello lessons from Miss Emma for about 2 years and my son has improved a lot. She was very patient with him and taught him important details of each song and techniques.

I teach the Suzuki method which is a way of teaching the cello by listening and repeating before learning to read notes. It created high level listening skills and a sense of embodiment in the students. I have taught at this academy for the last 4 years!
