One of my favorite things about humanity is how we all learn differently. I aim to cater my teaching to each student to best prepare them as musicians, performers, and possibly future educators. I adhere to the "canon" of cello playing, but spice it up to appeal to each student and keep them passionately in love with their instrument.

About Katrina O.

I have been teaching cello lessons privately off and on for the last 10 years and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. I have young students, teen students, and adult students, ranging from beginner to advanced!

In my school years, I participated in the various youth orchestras and ensembles, including the Honor’s Performance Series High School Honors Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

In college, I served as principal cellist in the University Symphony Orchestra, and also played with the department’s tuition-funded quartet, the LE Phillips String Quartet. I participated in these ensembles as well as the Baroque Ensemble and Contemporary Ensemble, along with other various chamber and jazz ensembles and as featured soloist with the Singing Statesmen. Overall, I'm not locked into one particular style of playing!

My passion is to get kids (and adults!) excited about music and provide one-on-one instruction to students to kindle their love of music and of cello, and spark their curiosity to go deeper into music. So if your student, your child, or you are interested in studying cello privately, let’s get the ball rolling!
