I have been teaching cello to beginner and intermediate students for over six years. Previous students I have worked with have gone on to successfully audition for pre-college music programs and regional orchestras. While my background is in classical music, I have experience in arranging and teaching pop, rock, and movie music on cello; I aim to explore and celebrate all genres, and hope to give students the ability to connect with the music they truly love.

About Isabella P.

I recently graduated with a B.M. in cello performance at the Juilliard School. I have over six years of private teaching experience with beginner and intermediate cellists, but have been involved in music education since 2012: I am the co-founder and former director of the Congers Summer Music Camp and the Wilton Roots of Music Camp, two annual workshops that still operate in New York and Connecticut to provide free music lessons to beginners. I was on the faculty at The Cello Camp in Westport, CT during the summers of 2018 and 2019, and was a summer volunteer cello teacher at the Harmony Program in NYC in 2017. As an instructor for these programs, I taught beginner and intermediate cellists in private lessons, chamber ensembles, and orchestral groups.

I have performed as a soloist with ensembles such as The Hartford Symphony, was a National YoungArts Foundation winner, and toured NY and China as a member of the National Youth Orchestra of the USA in 2015. In addition to my classical background, I enjoy teaching and arranging pop, rock, R&B, and movie music for myself and my students.
