Lesson Details

Cello

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
At the start of my time with my students, depending on their skill level, I will take them through the physics of producing a clean and robust tone while also remaining relaxed and stress free. I focus on music theory as well as ear training to give my students a good musicianship foundation so that cello playing and all music endeavors are more accessible. I guide my students through a range of repertoire until I find what really clicks with the students particular desires and interests.

Teaching since:
January 2010

I am a classically trained cellist and a recent graduate from the Bob Cole Conservatory of music in Long Beach California. My teacher during this time was Dr David Garrett of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Dr, Marlin Owen of the Biola Conservatory of Music. I have been playing cello for fifteen years and have been playing in orchestras for the past ten. I was the principle cellist for the Irvine Young Concert Artists Orchestra for two years and was Assistant Principle cellist In the CUSLB symphony orchestra.
In addition to classical music my time at the Bob Cole conservatory allowed to play in various Jazz ensembles and allotted me some proficiency at improve and composition. I primarily teach classical music but I would very enthused to delve into a more contemporary practice as per the request of the student.
